Sermons about Wonder
This month we are considering the Christmas story as told by the authors of the four Gospels. We have looked at Matthew’s and Mark’s account; today we consider Luke’s account. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John all give us a little bit different version. This is not contradictory, understand, but complementary. Luke gives us the most detail about the events that surround the birth of Jesus.
We need to love the Lord our God with all our soul which means we need to have a sense of awe and wonder of God. Our lack of wonder of God shows our lack of love for God. Living with a soul full of wonder and awe honors God above all else. What we need to do in our lives is to turn up the "wonder dial" and live our lives with a greater sense of awe.
We begin to look at this man named Job - who is he, what does he do, where is he from. We want to know this man of whom God ordained to have a whole book written. Why was he is the position he was - and how does he respond when times are good and bad? Most of all, we begin to look at God, and His part in this great and tragic story.

Through this series, Jim and Paul reveal the timeless wisdom contained in the Psalms that can guide you to follow God faithfully in your everyday life, whether you are humming a happy tune or singing the blues.
Judges 14 Do you like riddles? If twelve make a dozen, how many make a million? What’s your answer? Samson not only tells a riddle in this story, he is a riddle. And in the riddles of this story we ourselves. The thing about riddles is that they have great answers. And if we are a riddle, the answer is God’s grace. The wonder of God’s grace comes thru in the riddle of this man Samson, even as it shines thru in us, riddled tho we are with doubt and failure.
Checking It Twice: Wonder Reconnect – Christmas Eve 2010 Text: Luke 2:1-20, Matthew 21:12-16, Psalm 40:5, 65:8 Key Thought: Experience the true wonder of Christmas – let Jesus into your world. When the angels had returned to heaven, the shepherds said to each other, “Let’s go to Bethlehem! Let’s see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.” They hurried to the village and found Mary and Joseph. And there was the baby, lying in the manger. After seeing him, the shepherds told everyone what had happened and what the angel had said to them about this child. All who heard the shepherds’ story were astonished, but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often. The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. It was just as the angel had told them. (Luke 2, NLT)

Take time over the next week to think about what it means for you, that God came to us as a baby to “be with us”. Not out there somewhere in the distance. And he still wants to “be with us” today. You can take a moment from the craziness or take a break from the stress...find comfort in Christ and lessen your loneliness by spending time with him. You don’t have to go far because he is waiting for you to come and sit "at his feet".
