The incarnation was a miracle. God became flesh through Mary’s ascent to become the mother of God. Through the Christmas story, the people who expect miracles and are on the lookout for God experience miracles and experience the joy of the incarnation. In this series we will encourage each other to expect miracles this Christmas season.

Week One: Breaking Through History

This week, we begin our new series, Expect Miracles. As we close out the church year and look forward to entering the season of Advent, we look at those who participated in Christ’s entering our world in the flesh, Jesus, whom we celebrate today as King of the Universe. Mary, Joseph, and others were willing to live for the reality of God intimately working in their lives, to look for it, name it, and celebrate it. Each of us, ordinary people, open to God’s work can also help to enable the extraordinary.

Week Two: A Light in the Darkness

Recognizing miracles can be hard. The pace, routine, and normalcy of family and work life can make us complacent in looking for, naming, and celebrating miracles. This week, our series explores how when trials inevitably come our way and that pace, routine, and normalcy stops … it is in these moments when all seems lost, miracles can be most recognizable. When we yield our desire for control, we allow God to work miracles.

Week Three: Make Straight His Path

In this week of our Message Series: Expect Miracles, we reflect on how in every miracle God provides, human beings are asked to prepare, participate, cooperate. Preparing the way for a miracle means taking action in our own lives and removing obstacles that separate us from God. When we do the possible, God does the impossible.

Week Four: The Miracle of Prayer

This 3rd Sunday of Advent, Gaudete Sunday, we explore another essential element to experiencing a miracle, prayer. Sharing our hopes, dreams, needs, and gratitude with God opens our lives to Him. When we pray for His will to be done, it empowers our hearts to conform to God. This is enables miracles to flourish!

Week Five: The Miracle of Faith

This Advent season, we have been laying the groundwork for miracles. In this final message of Expect Miracles, we unpack the truth that miracles require faith. We can participate in or reject God’s hope for our lives. When we believe in and hope with God, our faith allows for God’s word to be fulfilled, not only in our lives but in the lives of others. Expect miracles and see what happens. Let us be open, prepare our hearts, pray, and have faith. God Emmanuel is coming!
