Episode 19 — Advent: Joy & Ultimate Reality

January 8, 2021
preached by
Pastor Jon Needham

For Christians, joy is not accidental, superfluous, or a distraction. In this episode, Pastor Jon and Pastor Rusten discuss how the joy and delight of the triune God was the context for the creation of all things, how our misery is due to our estrangement from him, and how the redemption Christ accomplished for us brings us into his joy. They also discuss how Christian fellowship and worship is an essential aspect of this joy.
