Cuando muera, ¡estaré en el cielo con Jesús!

Christmas Makes Sense of Everything

Isaiah 9:2-7 I’m going to preach on this text as if I were looking at it from an airplane about 20,000 feet in the air so as to get the big picture. Perhaps on a normal Sunday I would go into the finer details, but that’s not really the reason
