Becoming Content at Christmas


Sermon Date: 
Sunday, December 10, 2017

Size 15.22 MB

Sermon Topic: “War and Peace”  - the only place those two words make sense together is when we think of Tolstoy’s laboriously long 1863 novel. But hold on... I believe that on the Second Sunday of Advent, the Advent of Peace, perhaps there is another way to understand how “gaining a godly sense of peace and contentment” might require a little bit of “wartime” thinking. I’ll explain more about that, but suffice it to say – we as believers must begin to think differently about the godly contentment our Lord intends for us to achieve through our personal connection to Him through Jesus Christ.  We will discover that by thinking of the Christmas story and examining some passages that talk about contentment in a new way.
