John 18:37 A Stable Influence: Jesus Came For Truth

Two Scenes
The scenes could not be more different.

Matthew 10:34-36 Stable Influence: Jesus Came To Disrupt

Christmas Peace
It’s one of the most heartwarming stories in history. And it’s true.

Today we start the season of the church year known as advent, which celebrates and prepares us for the coming of Jesus into the world.

Advent means the arrival of something important or awaited, a coming into place, view, or being;

Advent the anticipation of the “coming.” Of Jesus Christ.

Jesus’ coming, of course, is the most significant event in the history of the world. We believe that when Jesus was born to a young girl in a stable in Bethlehem, it wasn’t just an unusual way and place to have a baby, it was the entrance of God into the affairs of humanity.
