'Come, Thou long expected Jesus, Born to set Thy people free" is how the Christmas hymn begins! The world steeped in sin and darkness had reached a bitter broth. Suddenly, a light erupted and dispersed the darkness.
Christ came into the realm of the king of darkness. He beat Satan and took away his power at the cross. At the cross, Christ bought the right to take citizens from Satan's kingdom and bring them into His kingdom of Light.
Satan delights in sickness, lust, envy, pride, bitterness and rebellion. He loves the chaos and brokenness that humanity reaps, as we rebel against our Creator and hurt each other in the process. Sin has consequences, and those consequences directly affect our families and communities. ENTER JESUS CHRIST! King Jesus enters a family and changes that family from the inside out. King Jesus enters a community and turns darkness into light! Satan and his hoards of evil spirits are desperately trying to prevent the King of Light from taking what belongs to HIM. But, they can't.
The King of Light brings His salvation and healing power into the lives of His people. His kingdom has come on Earth, as it is in Heaven. Jesus Christ delights in healing, love, kindness, humility, bravery, self-control, forgiveness, and obedience. And, His citizens do, too. Every time we bring the gospel, healing, peace, and freedom from evil spirits to individuals, families, and communities, we do these things as ambassadors of King Jesus Christ. In His authority, we fight Satan and cut through the darkness with the sword of the Holy Spirit. It isn't easy, but the success is already written in Heaven. Our work is to do the will of the Father and do the good works that He's already planned out for us to do, which are all part of His plan to bring His kingdom across every community on planet Earth.
We're a family on mission to bring the good news of Jesus to the Philippines.
