WHEN THE ANGEL APPEARED TO THE SHEPHERDS, HE ANNOUNCED FIVE THINGS: DON’T BE AFRAID, GOOD NEWS, GREAT JOY, IT’S FOR EVERYONE, JESUS IS BORN! THEN AN ANGEL CHOIR SHOWED UP AND SANG A SIMPLE SONG: “GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST HEAVENS, AND PEACE ON EARTH TO ALL WHOM GOD FAVORS.” WHEN THIS AMAZING EVENT ENDED, THE SHEPHERDS HAD ONE RESPONSE, “LET’S GO!” WHAT WILL MY RESPONSE BE TO THESE FIVE MESSAGES THIS CHRISTMAS?



SERMON NOTES



DECEMBER 1ST - DON’T BE AFRAID

*To VIEW this week's sermon on YouTube, click HERE.

WHEN THE FIRST ANGEL APPEARED TO THE SHEPHERDS, HE TOLD THEM TO NOT BE AFRAID. WHEN THE ANGEL CHOIR SANG TO THE SHEPHERDS, THEY PROMISED PEACE FOR GOD’S PEOPLE. GOD IS ALL ABOUT COMFORTING AND ENCOURAGING HIS FAITHFUL PEOPLE IF THEY WILL TRUST HIM. THE PROPHETS BOTH WARNED PEOPLE AND COMFORTED PEOPLE WHENEVER THEY TOLD THEM WHAT GOD WAS ABOUT TO DO. IT’S THE SAME FOR US…FEAR NOT, PEACE COMES TO YOUR LIFE THROUGH JESUS. LET’S JOIN THE SHEPHERDS AND GO TELL PEOPLE ABOUT HIS PEACE THIS CHRISTMAS. TO PREPARE, READ LUKE 2 & ISAIAH 9:1-7.

DECEMBER 8TH - GOOD NEWS

*To VIEW this week's sermon on YouTube, click HERE.

THE FIRST ANGEL ANNOUNCED TO THE SHEPHERDS THAT HE WAS BRINGING “GOOD NEWS.” WHAT WAS THIS GOOD NEWS? JESUS EXPLAINED WHY HE WAS THE EMBODIMENT OF GOOD NEWS. EVERYTHING WE COULD EVER HOPE FOR IN LIFE IS FOUND IN THE ONE BORN ON CHRISTMAS. IN THIS WORLD OF VIOLENCE, TENSION, CHAOS AND DIVISION, WE NEED GOOD NEWS. LET’S JOIN THE SHEPHERDS AND GO TELL PEOPLE ABOUT HIS GOOD NEWS THIS CHRISTMAS. TO PREPARE, READ LUKE 2 & MATTHEW 11:1-6.

DECEMBER 15TH - GREAT JOY

THE FIRST ANGEL ALSO ANNOUNCED THAT THE ONE BORN IN BETHLEHEM WOULD BRING THEM “GREAT JOY.” WHY, IN THEIR OPPRESSION AND SUFFERING, WOULD ANY OF THEM BELIEVE THEY COULD EXPERIENCE ANY KIND OF JOY, LET ALONE GREAT JOY? THAT WAS THE WHOLE POINT OF WHAT GOD DID AT CHRISTMAS. HE TURNED OUR MOURNING AND SUFFERING INTO DANCING AND CELEBRATION. HE SHOWED US THIS WORLD IS NOT THE ONLY WORLD WE ARE LIVING IN AND LIVING FOR. LET’S JOIN THE SHEPHERDS AND GO TELL PEOPLE ABOUT HIS GREAT JOY THIS CHRISTMAS. TO PREPARE, READ LUKE 2 & 1 PETER 1:3-9.

DECEMBER 22ND - IT’S FOR EVERYONE

*To VIEW this week's sermon on YouTube, click HERE.

THE FIRST ANGEL ADDS TO HIS MESSAGE, “…THAT WILL BE FOR ALL PEOPLE.” THAT WAS SO IMPORTANT BECAUSE GOD’S PEOPLE HAD LONG BEEN TOLD THERE WERE ONLY A SELECT FEW THAT WERE CHOSEN. AFTER JESUS WAS BORN, GOD LED MEN FROM THE EAST WHO WERE NOT JEWS TO BRING GIFTS TO THE BABY AND WORSHIP HIM. AFTER JESUS ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN, HIS DISCIPLES LEARNED EVERYONE CAN EXPERIENCE HIS SALVATION. LET’S JOIN THE SHEPHERDS AND GO TELL PEOPLE CHRISTMAS IS FOR EVERYONE. TO PREPARE, READ LUKE 2, MATTHEW 2:1-12 & ACTS 10:1-11:18.

DECEMBER 24TH - CHRISTMAS EVE - JESUS IS BORN

THE FIRST ANGEL ANNOUNCES TO THE SHEPHERDS EXACTLY WHAT HAS HAPPENED. “…A SAVIOR HAS BEEN BORN TO YOU; HE IS CHRIST THE LORD.” THIS IS WHAT THEY HAD BEEN TAUGHT THEIR ENTIRE LIVES, A SAVIOR WAS COMING. GENERATIONS BEFORE THEM HAD HEARD ABOUT HIM, BELIEVED IN HIM, HOPED FOR HIM AND WAITED FOR HIM. NOW, IN THEIR LIFETIME THEY WERE HEARING HE HAD FINALLY COME. LET’S JOIN THE SHEPHERDS AND GO TELL PEOPLE JESUS HAS COME TO CHANGE THEIR LIVES THIS CHRISTMAS. TO PREPARE, READ LUKE 2 & 1 TIMOTHY 1:15-17.

DECEMBER 29TH - WHAT IS GLORY TO GOD ANYWAY?

*To VIEW this week's sermon on YouTube, click HERE.

THE ANGEL CHOIR JOINED THE FIRST ANGEL SINGING, “GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST…” THE GLORY OF GOD IS HIS REAL PRESENCE AND CHARACTER. IT’S THE HIGHEST FROM OF PRAISE WE CAN DECLARE TO GOD. WHEN WE LOOK UPON THE FACE AND CHARACTER OF JESUS, WE SEE THE EMBODIMENT OF THE NATURE AND PRESENCE OF GOD. THOSE WHO WANT TO BRING GOD GLORY IN THEIR LIVES DO SO BY EMBRACING FAITH IN THE CHRIST OF CHRISTMAS. LET’S JOIN THE SHEPHERDS AND THE ANGELS AND GO TELL PEOPLE GOD’S GLORY HAS COME AT CHRISTMAS. TO PREPARE, READ LUKE 2 & 2 CORINTHIANS 4:1-6.
