Sermons about Incarnation
We begin our series on the Holy Spirit by studying base information and setting the focus for the year. When we talk about the Spirit, we are talking about God, and the Spirit's primary function is to point to Jesus. Our theme for this year is Breathe: Holy Spirit moving through me.
In this account of the visit of the wise men, we see various responses to the birth of the king: a response of joy and worship, a response of hostility, and a response of indifference. Then we see the actual celebration of the birthday of a king with the exchange of gifts and what that means for us.
When Jesus came to earth as a newborn baby, the Bible says God "dwelt" among us. That word has a whole lot more to it than meets the eye and by looking into it more closely we can begin to see the wonder of what God did for us by coming to earth as a human.

Pastor Justin Deeter delivers this Christmas Eve message reflecting on the incarnation of Christ.
In a day and age of pop psychology and skepticism, there are attempts to replace faith with scientific method and reason. Modern Christians tend to trust more in therapy than scripture. But let us put ourselves in Mary's place for a moment and appreciate her acceptance of the profound mystery which confronted her, and embrace it for ourselves as well.
Jesus was very special from start, and this is first seen in his supernatural beginning. Then as the name of the Lord is given, we learn about his work. He is Jesus, meaning “God saves.” We are then taken to great depths of mystery with the title given to Jesus, which is Immanuel, meaning “God with us.” Finally, we shall learn that this was not just true for Joseph and Mary, but that Jesus is still God with us.
When it comes to the internet, we are left wondering, why does chaos spread so effortlessly and quickly, but love does not? The answer to that question points back to the incarnation. I would say that chaos spreads so much faster in cyberspace because it doesn't need a body, and love does. You can telecast the hate on Twitter pretty easily. But sharing the love is far more complicated. There are many variables. At the least, it requires our heads and our hearts and our hands.
