In week two of this series, Pastor Brian uses the Biblical story of Sampson to show how even the strongest can fall because of compromises that are given room to grow. We can also see the steps to take in order to not let compromise take control of our lives.

This season can be a lot of different things – great, stressful, expensive, overrated – And Christmas has a tendency to magnify those things. Today, Pastor Brian challenges us to not LET things be magnified, but to CHOOSE what is magnified. If we choose to magnify Jesus this Christmas, what would we see?
