November 29-30, 2014 - Comfort & Joy: Rising Above Insignificance
Romans 12:1-8 & Matthew 5:13-16
God has a dream for every life. Find His dream for you and live it out.
December 6-7, 2014 - Comfort & Joy: A Voice Calling in the Wilderness
Mark 1:1-8 & 2 Peter 3:8-14
At the beginning of the story of Jesus Christ in the Gospel of Mark, John the Baptizer called out from within a wilderness so that people might know of the forgiveness of sins. He offered a Baptism by water, but he was anticipating the Good News of the Baptism that Jesus Christ would bring, which is of the Spirit. God still calls us in the wilderness of our lives so that we might experience His spiritual blessings, including forgiveness.
December 13-14, 2014 - Comfort & Joy: The One Who Calls You
1 Thessalonians 5:16-24 & John 1:6-8, 19-28
During this season, we all have good intentions about how we want approach Advent and Christmas. We desire to connect better with the spiritual aspects of the season, but we often give up hope half way through the season. Instead of giving up, we have the opportunity to return to God’s Word to rejoice, pray and give thanks. Rejoice! Your Lord and Savior has called you and is faithful with His good intentions towards you.
December 20-21, 2014 - Comfort & Joy: Call of an Angel
Romans 16:25-27 & Luke 1:26-38
At times, God has sent angels to share His message. He wanted to make sure His message was understood and received well. When the angel Gabriel came to share some good news with Mary, she was blessed. We were all blessed with the Good News of Jesus’ birth. Like Mary, we can receive this message and become followers of Jesus Christ—and then keep the message clear and joyful like a true messenger from God.
