"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Isaiah 35:1-10  

The Gospel and the coming of Jesus Christ is the greatest joy the world has ever known. It is the promise of the cessation of all evil and the returning of light to a dark world. The Gospel is dead things coming to life and dried up riverbeds teeming with water again. The Kingdom breaking in, is a sick and withering tree sucking in life and nourishment God provides to bear fruit once again. So why do we feel so joyless? Why do feel like that withered tree? What is a Christian’s responsibility when it comes to the level of joy in this world? While the kingdom of God has broken in, there is still an “already, not yet” reality in the world that we live in, but it is the hope that gives us joy! Please join us as we sing the Advent hymns of joy and worship the God who is the source of all our joy.
