Humble Servant

On Sunday, December 23rd, 2018 in What's Your Story?

As we turn this week from Joseph to Mary, we need to look back on what the angel told Joseph, namely, “You shall call His name Jesus because He will save His people from their sins.” Why? Because one of the people that Jesus saved from their sins was none other than His own mother, … Continued

The Quiet Giant

On Wednesday, December 19th, 2018 in What's Your Story?

On Wednesday, December 5th, 2018 in What's Your Story?

The shepherds are one of the most loved characters in the Christmas narrative. They were chosen. They were amazed. They were afraid. They were excited. They were great. But they were also…not very well liked. When the Lord chose to come to the shepherds, He chose men who were thought of poorly in the culture … Continued

One of the most amazing truths of the birth of Jesus is where He was born. We often hear it said “Jesus should have been born in a palace” or “Jesus should have been born in a beautiful hospital” and that’s all true. But the reminder today is that it’s not exactly true…you see, no … Continued
