The Unlikely Messiah / Baptism Service • Pastor Steve Gibson
Ever feel like you're the underdog? Sometimes fear in circumstances creeps in and knocks you off your foundation. When Christ enters the picture, and lives become devoted to Him, what was ordinary suddenly becomes extraordinary. The weak and powerless become overcomers. This is Christ's transformative power in us. Given Christ's humble beginnings, things didn't start out looking that way. An all-but-forgotten village, mere shepherds at His dirty mangerside, our King was off to a very inauspicious start. Maybe you are also at the beginning. Today, we'll look in Isaiah, discover the prophecies that He fulfilled, and see what Christ was destined for in order to be our Redeemer.
