God knows that most of need Hope. When we face life with no hope then we find our passion, energy and enjoyment of life quickly evaporates. Andrew looks at the situation that Jesus was born into and shows us that the Christmas story is not about Hope coming but now Hope is here. When we allow the Spirit of God to bring that Hope out of us then we are transformed and so is our world.
What happens when you have to face situations, people and challenges that seem like they are just too big? Jesus described the Holy Spirit as your comforter.

Relationship is priority to God. When Jesus encountered people in their sin, mess and mistakes, He never turned His back and walked away disappointed. Jesus never shied away from a sinner or a down and out, He embraced them and loved them in the midst of all their challenges. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. If you feel condemned or that God is disappointed in you, rest assured that you can still encounter God no matter what you are going through. Evan Brown talks on encountering God, and experiencing His goodness in our lives today. It is in these moments of encounter that we understand Gods heart for us and the world we live in. Start believing today that Jesus finished work on the cross has freed you to encounter and experience the presence of God at any time in any situation.
