Ever wish for better circumstances? Are you tired of being where you are? The message of Christmas is a message of hope. In the midst of troubling circumstances, there is a very real hope that is not based upon wishful thinking, but a child that was born. Into this broken world with its troubling news and at times heartbreaking situations, a Son has been given. Because of that gift, there is hope in the midst of every situation.
Below is a sermon I gave on December 4 at Southern Lakes Evangelical Free Church on Isaiah 9:6-7.
This past week I had the opportunity to spend time on a Sabbath Retreat in TN through the kind invitation of a pastor friend. It was a great week spent in prayer, in the Word of God, in the creation of God and with men of God. It was good for my soul to rest, reflect and rejoice. God is glorious. Here are some pictures from the week.
“Child of God, remember that neither goodness nor greatness can deliver you from affliction! You have to face it, whatever your position in life—therefore face it with dauntless courage and extort victory from it.” -Charles Spurgeon
