If we took a basic survey among Christians to determine the greatest danger facing the Church in 2018 is, what do you think it would be? Some might point to intolerance of traditional Christian values, others might point out social injustices the Church should be more active in opposing, while still others can highlight the ways hypocrisy among Christian leaders has eroded people’s trust in the Church. Another challenge lies not outside, but inside the church: 75% of Americans consider themselves Christians, and yet the majority of them hold to unbiblical and unChristian beliefs about who God is, what it means to be a Christian, and whether or not faith in Jesus is necessary for salvation.

In the Middle East, in the time of Jesus and OT Israel, it was like our common knowledge of computers, cell phones and the internet today.

Eminence, imminence and immanence. Each sounds the same yet each is vastly different. When we walk into the advent season each of the above words are true of our Lord Jesus. He iseminentor preeminent, illustrious, renowned. Jesus’ return isimminentor near, fast approaching and Jesus being fully God is alsoimmanent. He pervades and permeates and sustains all of creation. He sees our every step, knows our every thought and every word before it is on our tongue. He controls the times and weather and nations are a drop in bucket. For all time and all people He is over all. He iseminent and immanent and His return in imminent.

What is Christmas all about? Is it about presents under the tree? Or spending time with family? Or about the “magic” of the season? Biblically speaking, Christmas is about none of those things - it’s about the coming of the savior who redeemed sinners and secured the restoration of all things by the grace of God. Christmas is about the coming of the Savior.
