Tune in to “A Message from Kristy” to hear her heart for Advent season.
Thank you for joining us for another episode of On the Ground with Samaritan’s Purse. To launch the Advent season, Kristy shares her heart for living in the tension of waiting on the Lord’s return. Listen as she dives deeper into Old and New Testament Scripture to seek wisdom to live in the balance—embracing the tensions of this Christmas season while having hope that God is daily renewing His people. Below are the passages referenced:
– Isaiah 9:4-7
– Philippians 1:20-23
– Philippians 2:7-11
– Luke 2:15-19
“As I’m approaching this Christmas season stripped and worn, I’m recognizing the goodness in the midst of it,” Kristy says. “Not to diminish the hurt and pain that we’re lamenting from the past year, but recognizing that our identity and hope should be in the Lord. So, I pray that as you head into this season, that you lean on Christ to live in the balance.”
