Advent 2014 – O Holy Night
Micah 5:2

“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from old, from ancient.” Micah 5:2

Christmas is an ideal opportunity to rekindle the hope that all humankind can experience the transformation of God.

What some deemed sacrilegious God used to glorify Himself and His Son.

God is not intimidated by the unclean.

“Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.” Acts 10:15

This is the Christmas Season! We are all talking about the incarnation when we talk about Christmas.

Christmas is a perfect opportunity for God to show us how He loves to transform the ordinary into the sacred.

But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.

God loves to take the common and use it for His glory.

What is is not what something may become.

As believers, we must never put a period on the end of a sentence. We must put a comma and let God finish.

Advent 2014 – Joy To The World
Luke 2:8-11, Psalm 98

If there is a single word that describes what Christmas is all about, it’s the little word joy.

Where does Christmas joy come from?

I. The Prophecy of His Coming Micah 5:2
Seven hundred years earlier the Lord had spoken through the prophet Micah and declared that the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem.

The theologians knew the truth but wouldn’t act on it; the shepherds knew very little but what they knew, they believed and immediately acted upon.

II. The Reality of His Coming
The first is that there were no miracles associated with the physical birth of Jesus Christ.

Second, it’s important to remind ourselves that the phrase “this day” means that it really happened.

Everything about the story is true, including the central truth that there really was a baby born in Bethlehem who really was the Son of God.

III. The Result of His Coming

That’s why Christ came—to be a Savior for everyone who will turn to him.

This is the heart of Christmas. God loved us enough to send his only begotten Son.

IV. The Purpose of His Coming
Pause for a moment and consider who was speaking and who was being addressed.

Our Lord came for the forgotten people of the earth and most of the time they are the ones who receive him with the greatest joy.

He Came For You
You can never be saved until you say, “Christ came for me. He died for me. He rose from the dead for me.”

Joy the world, the Lord is come.
