Sermons about Incarnation
The key to holding fast and drawing near when we are tempted to give up and draw back is to possess a clear understanding of Jesus as our great high priest. In Hebrews 4:14-16, the author gives us a clear picture of Jesus and His high priesthood. Specifically, he gives us three reasons why Jesus is our great high priest who is able to help us hold fast to our confession and to draw near to Him with confidence. We will come to see how these three reasons offer hope and help for us in our present difficulties, which fight against our perseverance and kill our confidence in the Son of God.
When God's Son was born there was no room for Him in the Inn. 2000 Years later there are many who still have no room for Him in their heart (Inn). What is your heart full off? What do we place before God? Is it work and career, TV and sports, lust or hate? Or is it the affection for the Son of God? Who or what do you place first in your life?
As if the obscurity of Bethlehem weren't enough, God chose poor shepherds to be the first visitors to the incarnation.
Justice and righteousness are 2 of God's favorite words. What do they mean and what would it look like for the earth to be full of justice and righteousness? Christmas is not a time of sentimentality with smiles on the surface but a time to name the issues that plague our world and how the name of the baby in the manger makes all the difference.

God is with us when our plans fail, when tragedy hits, and life falls apart. Isla shares her story of how God was with her though the trial of a lifetime.
Stand alone sermon from the Christmas Celebration. Scripture from Philippians 2:3-11.
Christmas represents a story of great reversal. Paul captures this reversal on multiple levels in Ephesians 2. Before Christ, we were far away from God, separate from Him on account of our sin. Gentiles were especially far away from Him. Then, the Cross happened. But before the Cross happened, Christmas happened. God became flesh and made His dwelling among us. Christmas explains why the Cross mattered. For, Jesus was not just an exceptional human being. He is God, and as such, He is perfectly righteous. That is why the shedding of His blood on the Cross was sufficient to bring the unrighteous to God. And that is precisely what He did. Now, we have been brought near to God in Christ, by grace through faith. All Christians are now seated with Christ in the heavenly realms and Gentiles in Christ are actually fellow-citizens of God's people, members of God's household, and part of a holy building indwelt by God Himself.
In 1 Timothy 1:12-17, Paul recounts his conversion and commissioning as an Apostle. In so doing, he reveals the reason why the eternal Son of God came into the world, namely to save sinners. Moreover, Paul sets himself forth as the quintessential example to prove this point! From this passage, we will come to see two vital truths, which remained clear and definite for Paul, namely the greatness of His sin and the greatness of His Savior.
