God with Us…in a Gloomy Place

In the hymn for which this sermon series is named, we sing “O come Desire of nations, bind all peoples in one heart and mind; bid envy, strife, and quarrels cease; fill the whole world with heaven’s peace.” In your life – in your home – is Jesus’ reign expanding? Is his Lordship in your life growing? Are you, every day, giving more of yourself to him? Do you find peace increasing in your life – not just the absence of conflict – but biblical peace (shalom) – total well being, abundance? When Immanuel reigns in our lives, our homes, our church, our nation – it doesn’t matter how gloomy or dangerous…the Prince of Peace can bring abundance. He will reign on David’s throne for eternity. Let him reign on the throne of your heart!

Scripture References: Isaiah 9:6-7

From Series: "O Come, O Come, Immanuel"

“Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14) The distance between mortal and divine is a hallmark of most ancient religions. That’s why God’s promise of Emmanuel – “God with us” – is so shocking. It’s His promise to “never leave you nor forsake you.” Join us for “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” as we prepare our hearts for Christmas and unpack Isaiah’s amazing prophecy of Jesus. We’ll discover He is God with us…in the far-away places, in the gloomy places, and in the dangerous places.
