First Sunday of Advent - 11/29/2015
"The Hard Work of Trust" - Hebrews 6:13-20


"Insistence on security is incompatible with the way of the cross! Think of what daring adventures the incarnation and the atonement were! What a breach of decorum that Almighty God should renounce his privileges in order to take human flesh and human sin! What a loss of security Jesus endured to go to the cross. So to follow the cross is to accept at least a measure of insecurity, danger, and rejection for the sake of serving others."

— John R.W. Stott
