We are in week 4 of the series Finding Peace in an Anxious World, and Tyler focuses his message on Local Presence > Omnipresence.

Omnipresent – “always present”. God is always present everywhere all the time. God alone is… Omnipresent (all-present), Omnipotent (all-powerful), Omniscient (all-knowing).

While Christmas is supposed to be about incarnation (God becoming human), we make it about excarnation (humans becoming God). Rather than focusing on our local presence, we strive for God’s omnipresence.

Simply, there are things we cannot do, expectations we cannot meet, goals we cannot achieve, sins we cannot erase, wounds we cannot heal, shame we cannot remove, guilt we cannot forgive… and an enemy we cannot defeat on our own.

But God can.

Jesus has, and he’s inviting you. He’s inviting you to accept that victory and join the army. It’s the ultimate admission that you’re not God, that you’re not omnipresent, you’re not omnipotent, you’re not omniscient. It’s asking God to do for you what you can’t do for yourself.
