Christmas As War

undefined

Speaker: JD Summers | Date: December 23, 2018 | Text: Matthew 2:13-23

Sermon Summary

In Matthew 2:13-23, three events following Jesus' birth are said to fulfill three Old Testament passages. Jesus, the long promised Messiah, is the seed of the woman who conquers the serpent, Satan. However, this victory comes through pain, suffering, and death. Jesus took our place, bore the wrath we deserved, and humbled himself for our sake. At Christmas, remember the loving sacrifice of Jesus.

The Glorious Newborn King

Speaker: Carey Wilson | Date: December 16, 2018 | Text: Matthew 2:1-12

Sermon Summary

In Matthew 2, we see three different responses to the glorious birth of king Jesus. King Herod responds in fear, seeing Jesus as an unwelcome threat to his sinful ways and seeking to remove him. The people of Jerusalem respond with indifference and fear of aligning themselves against Herod. But the Magi, men who were pagan, sinful, and outsiders, responded to the glorious appearing of Jesus with worship. What is your response to the glorious newborn king?

God With Us, God For Us

Speaker: Steven Parkin | Date: December 9, 2018 | Text: Matthew 1:18-25

Sermon Summary

Jesus' virgin birth is central to the Christmas story. Born of the Spirit and not a human father, he is the sinless Son of God. As Isaiah prophesied, Jesus is Immanuel, God with us, whose coming signifies salvation. At the cross, God with us becomes God for us. Jesus showed initiative in dying for us while we were still sinners. Will you respond to his initiative by faith and repentance?
