God with us

Some thoughts from last Sunday’s sermon from Taylor Ishii, our church’s youth pastor.

“God will stop at nothing to be with us.”

Also, a quote (in my paraphrase) he gave from Stan Hauerwas: “What shouldn’t stun us is that Mary is a virgin but that God won’t abandon us.”

May we be reminded of the stunning truth of this season: He is God with us.

The Power of His Coming

4 But when the fulfillment of the time came, God sent his Son, born through a woman, and born under the Law. 5 This was so he could redeem those under the Law so that we could be adopted. 6 Because you are sons and daughters, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba, Father!” 7 Therefore, you are no longer a slave but a son or daughter, and if you are his child, then you are also an heir through God. (Galatians 4:4-7)
