Sermons from December 2018
John 1:19-34 Nothing has the power to transform your life like intimacy with God. Intimacy with God is enjoying the riches of God’s Glory (His indescribable greatness and unimaginable goodness). In this text we see some very deep changes in John the Baptist. If that is true about him, though he knows very little about the coming of the Messiah compared to us, even more…
Jn. 1:1-18; Lk. 2:1-20; Mt. 2:1-121. Christmas is about light coming into our world of hopelessness through the birth of Jesus Christ the Lord. 2. Christmas is about life coming into our world of death through the birth of Jesus Christ the Lord. 3. Christmas is about glory coming into our world of emptiness through the birth of Jesus Christ the Lord.
John 1:14-18 We were created by God, for God, to See, Savor, and Show the Glory of God. Nothing is more life-liberating and soul-satisfying than enjoying the riches of God’s glory. The Glory of God is His Indescribable Greatness and Unimaginable Goodness. God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.
John 1:10-13 Advent is about the arrival of life in the midst of death. Life is one of the major themes of John’s gospel, where the word is used thirty six times. When it comes to this subject, we all know that it is possible to be alive, and yet not really have life in its fullest and truest sense. This true life is what we were made for.
John 1:1-11 “Light” Why do we put lights on our homes and trees and light candles to celebrate Christmas? Because Christmas is about light coming into this world through the birth of Jesus Christ. Seven times in our text the word “Light” is used.
James 5:13-20 If our prayer life reflects the quality of our relationship with God, then how can we have a prayer life that is filled with passion, power and the presence of God? Along with the Word of God and the People of God nothing will bring greater HEALING to our spirit, soul and body like communication, conversation and communion with God.
