What Do We Expect for Christmas


Third Sunday of Advent. We light the third candle of Advent, the Shepherd’s Candle. Pastor Jeff Ruby asks the question in his message, “What Do We Expect for Christmas?” and reminds us “Do not weary of doing good because at the proper time you will reap the eternal harvest.”

Galatians 6:1-9 NIV
“Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves. Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else, for each one should carry their own load. Nevertheless, the one who receives instruction in the word should share all good things with their instructor. Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
