Advent 1: Knowledge & Reverence

November 29, 2016

Rev. Sammie Evans began the Advent sermon series, “Embodying the Leadership of Christ,” with 1 Kings 19:1-15, the account of Elijah’s encounter with God in the wilderness. Advent is a time of longing and anticipation. In this season at BSM Church, the Advent sermon series responds to this season by exploring the kind of leader we are waiting for in the person of Christ. In her sermon, Sammie reminds us that God does not give us a place of safety in order to hide from God’s call on our lives. Rather, this is to renew us so we can respond to God. Knowledge and reverence of the Lord begins with stillness, and ends with us being sent out.
