In our episode today, Dr. Matthew Smith, lead pastor of the Pacific Baptist Church in El Segundo, California, focuses our attention of the 1st coming of Jesus.

You can take the thought of this message one step further by ordering a copy of Pastor Matt’s book, In His Presence.
In His Presence is a daily devotional that focuses on the truth:

It revolves around the Biblical truth, “God welcomes you into His presence with joy and pleasure.”
This devotional follows a reading schedule through the entire book of Psalms over the course of the calendar year.
