Sermon Series(Archived series are below)
This Christmas we will celebrate once again the most astounding miracle imaginable—God takes on our human flesh and blood so that he can rescue this world from sin and death. Yet, God’s rescue plan is a whole lot older than any of our Christmas celebrations. God launched his redemption plan the moment sin entered this world. For thousands of years before that first Christmas people lived in anticipation of God’s promise to send a deliverer. When Jesus was born, the celebration was fueled by 1000’s of years of anticipation. As we lean into Christmas this year, our prayer is that we would re-capture the “thrill of hope” connected to this boy child in the manger.
“But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship” (Galatians 4:4-6).
|November 28-30||Longing||Jeremiah 33:14-16|
|When things are bad, we can’t help but long for better days. Just a word of promise, a glimpse of hope, can revive our sinking souls and fill us with a longing to see that promise fulfilled. This is how it is for God’s people as we live in this world.|
|December 5-7||Preparing||John 3:1-6|
|As believers began to see the signs that God is laying the groundwork in preparation for the fulfillment of his promise, they take notice. God’s people look for ways to prepare themselves as the anticipation increases. Are we ready?|
|December 12-14||Marveling||Luke 1:39-45|
|Over time God began to reveal more and more details concerning how he would bring his promise to fulfillment. Those details filled God’s people with wonder as they began to see his power and wisdom in action. We know so much more of the story than they ever did. How can we not, like them, be filled with wonder and awe?|
|December 19-21||Rejoicing||Luke 1:46-55|
|Imagine how Mary felt when Jesus, her promised Savior, made his presence known for the first time in her womb? As we experience firsthand the fulfillment of our anticipation, our hearts smile to have finally seen what we have longed to see for so long!|
