Success can make us proud and lead us to believe that we do not need God, and that we have achieved success on our own. Some, having lost all fear of the Lord, think of Him only as a cosmic power. Has your prayer life characterized as praying to someone who only fulfills our needs, or do your prayers include repentance and thanksgiving to our God who is holy? Join us as Alistair teaches on the importance and meaning of truly seeing the Lord for who He really is.

With the holidays approaching, "getting ready for Christmas" becomes a focus in our lives and homes. Yet preparing our hearts to celebrate Christ's coming is even more important. The Advent season addresses this need by pointing out that all of the Bible is history - and HIS story. In this first Advent message, we study how Jesus fulfilled not just specific predictions, but all of the Old Testament, during His earthly ministry.

When we face darkness - both in the world around us and within our own hearts - where do we turn for relief? The tendency to rely on sinful substitutes is just as common today as it was in Isaiah's time. Only the Light that God gives in Christ can overcome our darkness and set us free from spiritual oppression.

The familiar terms in Isaiah 6 (Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace) are not just titles of the incarnate Christ – they are roles He fills in the life of the believer. In this Advent study, we discover the actions Jesus performs in each role and the very real difference they make in our daily experience.

At Christmas, we don't celebrate the birth of any ordinary child, but a child who was born to save and to rule: Mediator, beloved Son, Redeemer, Creator, and King. This study in Isaiah 9 draws us again to look from the manger to the cross to the throne, where our living Savior reigns in power.

There are certainly many examples of good and loving fathers in the world—fathers who would never abandon or leave their children. However, one day these fathers and children will be separated in death. In this message, Alistair introduces us to the one and only Everlasting Father.
