Week 1: this is different

“Behold, I am doing a new thing….” These are words that mark the Advent of Christ. Yet it often feels like Christmas is a repeat of old experiences. We know this ancient story. How could there be anything new here? What if the newness comes in what God desires to do in his people? Old to New. Dead to Life. Maybe this is what Christmas is really all about.

week 2: untangled

In Isaiah 40, a voice calls from the wilderness for people to prepare the way of the Lord. Make straight paths out of the crooked, tangled up pathways that we have become. Otherwise, we’ll be caught off guard when the coming king arrives. So how do we straighten ourselves out? Thankfully, it’s all God’s work. And he is infinitely more patient than we are when we encounter tangled messes.

week 3: invite

To those stumbling around in a dark room, light is a welcome gift. It makes clear, the things that were previously unnoticeable. To those experiencing long-felt darkness, light is an invitation. But the invitation isn’t to a location. It’s to a person. For unto us, a Child is born.

week 4: wait

God speaks through the prophet Isaiah that, “nations shall come to your light.” And the Lord is faithful. Through Jesus, He calls the ends of the earth into the light of the Lord. And to Isaiah, he says, “wait and see.” We see this happening today. But we still wait to see this happen fully. While we wait, we work. And the work is to faithfully follow the Christ Child into God’s presence, where every knee will bow and tongue confess that He alone is Lord!

Join us for this message on the morning of December 24th!

He’s here! Jesus is born.
