Did Jesus begin His life as a baby? With the focus on His birth into the world during the Christmas season, it would be easy to get the impression that the first appearance of Christ was in a stable, but that’s far from the truth. Eternally far.
Waiting for the King is an advent devotional that looks at the Christmas story from the beginning...before time. Jesus didn't begin His existence at His birth in Bethlehem. The Creator and Sustainer of all things entered into His own creation and human history to fulfill a plan. A wonderful plan of redemption.
Matthew J. Cochran is a devoted father of three and Marine (1998-2003) who finds his calling in leading people into a deeper relationship with God through Jesus Christ. His approach to this is two-fold: shine light on the supremacy of Christ through the Gospel and lead others to trust God in all things.
Matt has served in children’s ministry, new believers’ ministry, and young adults ministry over the years. His experience leading Marines, helping to plant new churches and with discipling young people has allowed the Spirit to open Matt's eyes to the need for servant leadership and helping others to serve Christ with compassion. He’s passionate about being a dad, eating great food, and spending time with the love of his life, Sarah.
