(Podcast) ‘Overcoming the World’ & the Promise of Advent
Episode 51: ‘Overcoming the World’ & the Promise of Advent
Trials, pain, and sadness are very real things in this world, often rearing their ugly head during the advent season. As we face issues brought about by these ‘challenges,’ Jesus makes us a vaguely positive promise that he has ‘overcome the world.’
What does this mean exactly, and how can it bring new hope and light to your Christmas season?
Join Rick and Steph as they wrap up a month-long pursuit of the heart of advent by jumping into this ‘mud puddle’ statement found in John 16. Diving in, we’ll examine how Jesus’ promise to have ‘overcome the world’ connects directly with his birth in Bethlehem.
