Pastor's Corner: The Promised One

It's a little hard to believe that we're already in the Advent Season again as we move into the weeks leading up to Christmas Day! I've begun an Advent series with our church, "The Promised One," as we prepare our hearts to celebrate the birth of Jesus. The series is based on Isaiah 9:2, 6-7 and is focused on Jesus as the:

–Mighty God

–Prince of Peace

–Light of the World

–Immanuel

Each of those four titles are significant in identifying and defining who Jesus is. One of the unique challenges of the Advent Season is that we may tend to focus only on his birth. Although the virgin birth of Jesus is critical to our understanding of who he is, it's only part of the Biblical picture.

I'm finding that this series is helping all of us to not only remember who Jesus truly is, but is also leading us into a wonderful time of worship as we prepare to celebrate his birth. Let me encourage you to take your family to church during this Christmas season and learn about the One who we remember and worship!

Christmas blessings.
