Patience for the Present

SCRIPTURE TEXT: Matthew 1:18-25; 2:1-12
Every year at Christmastime, while most of us are gearing up for festivities with family & friends, some among us experience tremendous emotional challenges: the first Christmas without a loved one, yet another Christmas alone, or sometimes just the challenge of awaiting an answer from God in the seemingly interminable burden of the present moment. Like the Magi following a star in the dark or Joseph heeding the guidance of God in his dream, the Christmas story reminds us that sometimes—like children waiting to open their gifts on Christmas Day—we need to look to the Father with persevering patient trust while we wait on Him in the present moment of our challenge.
Preacher: Pastor Courtney Hall
Series: ADVENT - A Season of Waiting (Pt. 4)
