"While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them." Luke 2:6,7
It always amazes me that the God of the universe decided to take on a body of flesh. Even more astoundingly, rather than appearing on earth as an adult, He chose to be born of a woman and to come as a tiny and helpless baby. If you have raised your own children or spent time around an infant, you understand how totally dependent they are. They can only sustain life through the love and compassion of another human being who feeds, clothes, and cares for their needs. Isn’t it remarkable, then, that the One who created everything contained His majesty and deity in a human body and became reliant on His creation to sustain Him?...
This week, on this third Sunday of Advent, Pastor Bobby teaches that you can be a joyful person; a person who understands that there’s so much more available to us through the Holy Spirit, with his message, “The Joy of God.” Special music is provided by Haven Schuller. Haven is the twelve-year-old daughter of Bobby and Hannah Schuller. Today, Haven performs “Silent Night," accompanied by Dr. Marc Riley and the Hour of Power Orchestra. Then, Sal Malaki performs "Adeste Fideles," accompanied by the Hour of Power Choir, directed by Dr. Irene Messoloras, and the Hour of Power Orchestra, directed by Dr. Marc Riley. Sal is a world-renowned operatic tenor. He is a member of the Los Angeles Opera, the LA Master Chorale and the Hour of Power Choir. Born in Hinunangan, Southern Leyte, Philippines, Sal graduated from the University of the Philippines with two majors: Bachelors Degree in Voice and a Teacher’s Diploma in Flute. Finally, directed by Dr. Irene Messoloras, the Hour of Power Choir performs “The First Nowell," along with soloist Suzanne Waters, and "For Unto Us a Child is Born." They are accompanied by Dr. Philip Hoch on organ, and Dr. Marc Riley and the Hour of Power Orchestra. We hope you will join us for this hour of inspiration and encouragement! God loves you and so do we!
