Advent 2015 Week 2 - Jesus the God-Man

Speaker: Ty Neal
Date: December 06, 2015

Since the fourth century, the Church has celebrated the season of Advent (which means "coming" or "arrival") starting on the fourth Sunday before Christmas day. The celebration of Advent helps us focus our attention on Jesus Christ's birth and ministry as well as his promised return. In a season typically marked with busyness and distraction, we can easily miss the point of this season of celebration. Join us as we discover what we're really looking for this time of year: true hope, peace, joy and love in Jesus. He's Coming: Advent 2015.

Peace

I don’t ...

I don’t know what to do

I don’t...

I don’t feel safe

I don’t..

I don’t feel loved

Quote

“You should point to the whole man, Jesus Christ, and say ‘That is God.’ The man, Jesus Christ, is God.” Martin Luther

Philippians 2:5-8

Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

Quote

“Lying at your feet is your dog. Imagine, for the moment, that your dog and every dog is in deep distress. Some of us love dogs very much. If it would help all the dogs in the world to become like men, would you be willing to become a dog? Would you put down your human nature, leave your loved ones, your job, hobbies, your art and lit-erature and music, and choose instead of the intimate communion with your beloved, the poor substitute of looking into the beloved's face and wagging your tail, unable to smile or speak? Christ by becoming man limited the thing which to Him was the most precious thing in the world; his unhampered, unhindered communion with the Father.” C.S. Lewis

Romans 5:1

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 9:6

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
