The Glorious Newborn King

undefined

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?

Speaker: Carey Wilson | Date: December 17, 2017 | Text: Isaiah 40:1-5

Sermon Summary

The promise of a messiah had immediate significance for Israel in Isaiah's day. The people going into exile were promised hope of comfort and redemption. But this foreshadowed a future greater Messiah who would come and bring deliverance not just for Israel, but for the world.

Speaker: Carey Wilson  |  Date: December 6, 2015  |  Text: Philippians 2:6-8

Sermon Summary

Only when we gain a grand vision of the eternal glory of Christ will be able to rightly value the miracle of the incarnation. As we celebrate Christmas, the maginitude of Jesus' humble condescention should inspire awe-filled worship and compel us to likewise pour ourselves out in humble sacrifice for others.
