Happy Holidays! As December and #ForReal Winter arrives, some larger animals go inside to hibernate and some Human animals start to get ready to be with their friends and families and eat lots of food because no one wants to go outside for more than 15mins at a time.

    The Christmas story really begins with one Old Testament prophecy after another of a promised Savior; a coming King; the Messiah; who would redeem his people and reconcile them unto God the Father. The centerpiece, so to speak, of all these prophecies is Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will […]

It was predicted in the Jewish bible, the book of Isaiah 7:14, “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” […]

Bethlehem is a place of beginnings, nurturing, and nourishment which all depend on love.  The Love that we celebrate over this Advent season has much deeper connotations […]

I. Introduction We are continuing our special series of bible studies on Advent, and this week we are going to study Hope. I sort of felt like I made a mistake this week studying.  I loved Chris’ lesson on Joy last week.  Chris told us he relied heavily on Brad’s lesson, and he was teaching a […]

This life is not about a performance to be witnessed but a rescued heart ignited. Performances are acts with “action” and “cut” as their bookends, whereas the rescued heart is a continual blaze without pause giving the world a correct summation of Christ! This Christmas, are you a performer or a rescued heart? As Christians […]
