Throughout the seasons of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany, we are often reminded of the importance of drawing near to God. But as the busyness of life absorbs into our homes, our relationships, and our spirits, it can be difficult to rely upon the grace of God and hear the voice of his Spirit. The promise of the season, though, is that through God's revelation to us in Christ, we can discover a hope that empowers a broken world.

In nineteen sermons, Charley Reeb sets out to remind us that God's mysterious ways are limitless in power. It is impossible to truly comprehend the possibilities of an immaculate conception or of God in the flesh, but when the church proclaims the message of redemption and displays God's unmatchable love, it exposes a truth that begins to transform the heart of the world. This is the greatest calling of any believer -- living a life that serves as light and hope.

Whether used as a sermon resource, a personal study and reflection guide, or as a curriculum for group and Sunday school study, Mission Possible! calls us into thoughtful discussion and seeks to move us deeper into the realm of the kingdom with a hopeful urgency that inspires us to breathe in God's word and exhale his grace to a world in need.
