Planning CHRISTMAS

Advent 2019

What type of Christmas celebrator are you? Do start shopping in July or stand in line on Christmas Eve? Do you prefer long-standing family traditions or the go-with-the-flow approach? Almighty, all-knowing, and all-loving God does both. He plans things from eternity past, yet remains fully present in the moment. Each Christmas celebration demonstrates both his eternal plan and his intimate presence.

He initiated his eternal plan with the first promise that a son of Adam would be the snake crusher. God then funneled that promise through the line of Abraham, the first family through whom all the world would be blessed. God advanced his plan through a series of prophecies and fulfillment like The Forerunner who arrived to prepare the way for the King. The first announcement God gave to a virgin, and the First to celebrate and worship the child were Simeon and Anna who saw all that God has promised fulfilled in Jesus. Praise God for His eternal plan.

Now Jesus dwells with us in each and every moment of the day and cares about all the minutia. He’s with us in the questions, the planning, the standing in line, and the carrying out. He’s with us in the cold, and he’s with us in the warmth. His presence abides with us, assures us, comforts us, gives us strength, hope, and peace. Praise God for His intimate presence.

Come join us as we praise the Father for His perfectly executed plan to provide a Savior for the world and friend who sticks closer than a brother. Come celebrate God-with-us.
