Series: Joyful Fulfillment – God’s Promises Come True (Advent 2018)

Doubt and Promise

Advent is here! Once again we celebrate the story of God bringing about a monumental step forward in his grand rescue plan for humanity by sending his Son to become a man, Jesus. Everything was about to change! A new covenant would be established. Salvation for all people by grace through faith in Jesus was about to arrive. And yet these monumental shifts in salvation history begin through teeny tiny miracles, starting with the answer to the long dormant prayers of a nice elderly couple. In Luke 1:5-25 we see how praying through our problems with faithfulness reveals God’s larger purposes so that we might nourish our hearts on those promises in private.
