Sermon shared by Jimmy Haile

December 2011
Summary: What if Christ had not come? What did we receive because He did?
Denomination: Baptist
Audience: General adults


Luke 2:8-12-Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid.
Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.
For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”

What If Christ Would Have Not Come?

If Christ had not come, the promises of God would be unfulfilled.

If Christ had not come, the world would still be in darkness.

If Christ had not come, there would be no bridge across the gulf of sin.

If Christ had not come, we would not know that God is love.

If Christ had not come, there would be no gospel to believe.

If Christ had not come, there would be no Christmas and no Easter.

If Christ had not come, there would be no hope beyond the grave.

If Christ had not come, we would still be lost for there would be no Savior for sin.

If Christ had not come, there would be no Good News to preach to the nations.

Listen Again To The Words Of The Angel, And Think Of What It Means For Us.

Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.
For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”

Because He Did Come!

He descended down here that we might ascend up there (John 6:38, 14:3).

He became poor that we might become rich (2 Cor 8:9, Jas. 2:5).

He was born that we might be born again (John 1:14, 3:2,7).

He became a servant that we might become sons (Phil. 2:7; Gal. 4:6, 7).

He had no home that we might have a home in heaven (Matt. 8:20; John 14:2).

He was hungry that we might be fed (Matt. 4:2; John 6:50).

He was thirsty that we might be satisfied (John 19:26).

He was stripped that we might be clothed (Matt. 27:28; Gal. 3:27).

He was forsaken that we might not be forsaken (Matt 27:26; 28:20).

He was sad that we might become glad (Isa 53:3; Phil. 4:4).

He was bound that we might go free (Matt 27:2; John 8:32-36).

He was made sin that we might be made righteous (2 Cor 5:21).

He died that we might live (John 5:24, 25).

He came down that we might be caught up (1st Thessalonians 4:16, 17).
