Giving Thanks

Giving Thanks

Seasons of life come and go. Sometimes we find it easy to genuinely feel and express gratitude, while in other seasons we may struggle to sincerely thank and praise God. Regardless of our circumstances, however, God remains the same God He has always been, and is equally worthy of our praise.

Emmanuel, God With Us

Emmanuel, God With Us

Often we look to Matthew and Luke’s gospels during the Christmas Season, as they beautifully and powerfully narrate the birth of Jesus and surrounding events. John’s gospel, on the contrary, may not seem very christmasy on the surface, as he does not narrate many of the events surrounding Jesus’ birth. Instead, John goes back to the beginning of time, to creation itself, for his readers to see and understand that Jesus is more than a man. He is Emmanuel, God with us.

Hope is Born

Hope is Born

Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus. He not only brings hope to a lost world; He is the very hope of God to the world, which all of scripture has been pointing to since the beginning. To celebrate the birth of Jesus is to celebrate God’s faithfulness in fulfilling his promises.
