“In the days of old the prophets spoke of this – God’s eternal plan unfolding in the events of today. It was never more true than on that night in Bethlehem, as the world lay expectant, holding its breath…” Have you ever wondered what it must have been like in Israel 2,000 years ago, waiting for the promised savior? It was a time of turmoil and hardship, a time of people walking in darkness. And then suddenly, light shined on Israel and the world. But it wasn’t what anyone expected – a child was born. Born in an insignificant way, in the humblest of circumstances. Jesus planted himself in the depths of our fallen world, to lead us back up to the light. Let this music take you back to ancient Israel; through the spiritual and emotional journey of the birth of Jesus. From the build up of historical tension, to Mary’s personal burden, to the angelic exuberance at His birth. Truly, we didn’t know who he was. How could we? God Himself, uncreated and eternal, became man, that He might save us all for all eternity. He gave us Himself. What greater gift could we receive?

- In Whom We Have RedemptionThe word redemption speaks of being delivered from the debt and dominion of sin in our lives, by grace, through faith in the ransom payment made by Jesus Christ. In other words, the price The Father paid to redeem our souls was the sacrifice of His Son Jesus. More specifically, it was the blood of […]
- Predestined And AdoptedAs we look to the spiritual blessings that belong to us who are in Christ Jesus, we read that we are predestinated to be adopted as children by Jesus Christ. The Greek word that is translated predestinated means, “to mark out beforehand, to determine before, or foreordain”. Other than here in Ephesians 1:5 & 11, […]
