We kicked off Advent 2022 at Crestview this past weekend. My opening sermon was Emmanuel Comes To Rescue. I tried to work hard in this sermon to dig into our longings in a holiday season like this, especially as it comes at the end of a year and wraps it up. For some, that doesn’t mean there’s a bow on top — the year has been rough! But passages like Matthew 20:28 show us that Jesus’s intention in coming was to affect change in people like us.
I hope this sermon and season affect your adoration of Jesus Himself.
