Sermons about Christmas
In the seventh and final sermon in this series, Pastor Josh declares The Christmas Story is a Story of Jesus.
Rory tells of his powerful transformation and how God brought him to become a christian.
The message, meaning, and miracle of Christmas is rooted in John 3:16 which tells us that God so loved the whole world that He gave His only Son to die on a cross for our sins. He would have done this if you were the only person on the face of the earth to love. Christmas reminds us that love is forever, and that there's nothing we could do to make God love us any more or any less.

Christmas Expectations December 23, 2012 Text: Matthew 1:18-25; Ephesians 3:14-21 Key Thought: God’s expectation for you this Christmas is to wake up to His incredible plan for you. When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. Matthew 1:24, NIV
This month we have considered the Christmas story as told by the authors of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Today, we complete our study by considering John’s account. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John all give us a little bit different version. This is not contradictory, understand, but complementary. We have learned something different from each one. I trust that today will be no different.
Pastor Gary Combs concluded the 4-week "All I Want for Christmas..." sermon series with this message from 1 John. This message shows the "ABCs" of how we can experience the agape love of God through Jesus, His Son.
The message is that God’s blessing of salvation through His Messiah is not contingent upon our own greatness, or good works or personal achievements. God did not choose a city for the birth of His Son because of its greatness or significance, or because it was a capital town or a home to the rich and famous. When God chooses, He chooses by His criteria. He chooses so that He will be glorified and that no man will ever be enabled to take credit for God’s plans and victories. Let us say together with the Angels, “Glory to God in the Highest!” Not glory to us. We receive the joy, but God receives the glory!
