Sermons on 2 Kings
Pastor Rudy Bropleh uses 2 Kings 13:22-23 to emphasize three key points that tells from the grace of God flows the mercy of God. Point 1 - God's grace is a marvelous grace. God will come right into the middle of our situation and say enough is enough and redeem me. Point 2 - God's grace is a magnificent grace. God's grace is always available to us and enables our little vision to become great. Our ability to live a significant life is dependent upon God's grace. Point 3 - God's grace is a mighty grace. God's grace continues to rescue us when it isn't deserved
God's mercy to Israel because he remembered his covenant with Abraham is a powerful reminder of the God who never forgets, especially in light of the new covenant, by which Christians stand, written in the blood of Jesus.

Advent is the time in the Christian year that comes just before Christmas. It sometimes gets confused with Christmas, but it’s very different in purpose. Christmas celebrates the arrival of the Savior. Advent is a time set aside to remind us that we are a waiting people. God’s people waited for the Messiah in the Old Testament times, and we await His return in our time. In the more recent past, I have come to appreciate the cycle of the Christian year, and the way that it not only lays out the life and ministry of Christ, but also the way that it can bring us in to that story. The seasons of the Christian Year are a repeating unfolding of the story of Christ – every year we can walk through the highlights of how God brought salvation to us, and as such, it is a means of keeping that story before us, and even of being embraced by it. Because, after all, and I hope that you are beginning to understand, contrary to the thinking of modern Americans, Christianity is not really about Christ coming into the story of your life. It’s about you coming into His story, and entering His life.
