450 Advent: Joy

December 16, 2016

“You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.” (Psalm 16:11)

Real and lasting joy is found in the presence of the Lord.  We see this in play through the a story of King David found in 
1 Chronicles 16.


449 Advent - Peace or Sword?

December 7, 2016

Peace?  Did Jesus come to bring us the absence of conflict or something else?

Matthew 10:34  “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword."

Jesus came to uproot the things (priorities, family, agendas...) that we put in the place only the Sovereign God can hold.


448 Advent: Deeper Hope

December 2, 2016

The story of John the baptist's lost hope call us to a deeper, messier, truer hope in Christ.  Not in what we believe God should/must do, but in who God is and what he has done.
