We live in a God-invaded world. This simple truth is easy to forget when we peer wide-eyed into a world filled with chaos, terror, and war. But when we embrace the kingdom of God as an ever-present reality, one filled with new possibilities rooted in the good news of Christ, we become molders and shapers of human history. "God's New Possibility" offers a bold invitation to believe and proclaim that God is indeed at work, calling us to participate in His plan of transforming the world.
"God's New Possibility" reflects upon the seasons of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany, unpacking the truths of a divine hope ushered into the world through the infant Christ. In seventeen sermons, James L. Killen Jr. reminds us that we serve a living and breathing God, one who became visible through Jesus and remains tangible through His Church. This is the evidence of a heavenly kingdom manifested through God's all-consuming presence and redemptive call -- a kingdom that offers a "new possibility here for us in each present moment of our lives."
The rich narratives of holy love found within the pages of Killen's sermons remain emphatic: God's love is not waiting for us at the borders of heaven; rather, He has already unleashed his redeeming love upon His world, and it is a love that calls all who proclaim His son as Lord and Savior to take an active role in spreading the good news of salvation.
