The daily routine of a young Jewish girl was about to be broken. The God of the universe was sending one of His key messengers from His throne room to pay a mind-boggling, heart-stirring visit to earth, to the back country Galilean village of Nazareth. Mary was about to become the mother to a baby boy. And not just any baby boy — THIS baby boy would be the long awaited Messiah who would save His people from their sins.
Is there any news more joyful than this?! The Son of God come to earth to save people like you and me? This is the Good News, the GOSPEL. And yet so many followers of this Messiah, Jesus, are characterized more by whining than by worship, known more for complaining than for joy.
Join Pastor Larry McCall in Luke 1 as we look at what we need to focus on to live daily life as worshipers, full of joy! Let’s ask God to fill our hearts with JOY as we kick off this season of Advent!
