The third article in a series of lessons from the life of Jesus. The third lesson gleaned from the story of His birth: trust in God.

Mary and Joseph are two figures in history whose brief mentions in the Bible deserve our study and admiration. Perhaps because some have gone from respect to veneration of Jesus’ earthly parents, we erroneously shy away from discussing their noteworthy faith. While human through and through, the faith they demonstrate at the beginning of their story in the Bible is worthy of imitation. There are three incidents in which we can observe their faith in action.

The second article in a series on lessons from the life of Jesus. The second lesson gleaned from the story of His birth: our civic responsibility.

As Christians, we consider ourselves temporary sojourners on earth and citizens of a heavenly kingdom. What does that signify concerning our civic duties during our time here on earth? Jesus set the example in all particulars of life, including this one. The circumstances of His birth—the fulfillment of prophecy that the Saviour would be born in Bethlehem—was guided by God through the government at the time.

JOS, NIGERIA—On Sunday, December 3, 2017, our church in Nigeria welcomed six new members.

Join us in praising the Lord.

The first article in a series studying lessons from the life of Jesus. The first lesson gleaned from the story of His birth: humility.

Perhaps one of the most evident lessons gleaned from the life of Christ is the lesson of humility. It is interwoven into His story here on Earth from its very beginning in Bethlehem to its very end at Golgotha.


The humble circumstances of Christ’s birth clashed with the proud expectation of pomp and glamour that was held by the Israelite nation.
