“Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
Advent Week 4: Love
December 23, 2018
Shalom / Peace
"Peace" is a very common word in English, that means different things to different people. It's also a very important word in the Bible that refers not only to the absence of conflict but also to the presence of something else. In this video, The Bible Project explores the core meaning of biblical peace and how it all leads to Jesus.
Yakhal / Hope
In the Bible people who have hope are very different from optimists! In this video, The Bible Project explores how biblical hope looks to God’s character alone as a basis for trusting that the future will be better than the present.
Chara / Joy
In this video, The Bible Project explores the unique type of joy to which God’s people are called. It’s more than happy mood, but rather a choice to trust that God will fulfill his promises.
Agape / Love
The word “love” is one of the sloppiest words in our language, as it primarily refers to a feeling that happens to a person. In the New Testament, “love” refers to a way of treating people that was defined by Jesus himself: seeking the well-being of others regardless of their response.
