The Gift of Peace // Luke 2:8-20

The gospel is the recovery of ‘shalom’ in the midst of a fallen & chaotic world. It is the good news that peace has come to earth!

This is the concluding message from Pastor Matt in our series, “The Promised King”. It was preached live at Life Spring Community Church in Spring Grove, IL on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2018.

A Tale of Two Kings // Luke 2:1-7

“Glory is wrapped in humility and weakness.”

Even in the church we have bought the lie that glory is found in our influence and perceived ‘success’. But the radical claim of the gospel is that “glory is wrapped in humility and weakness.” To be a Kingdom citizen (one who identifies as a follower of Jesus) is to re-define and re-align one’s identity with Jesus in Bethlehem.
