    Advent is a celebration of hope concerning the arrival of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This message looks at the meaning of Advent by discussing the symbolism of the Advent wreath and the multi-colored candles.

    I have entitled our message this morning “The Advent of Christ.” This coming Wednesday evening we will be decorating the Christmas tree in preparation for the Christmas season. In many churches across America, decorating the sanctuary, which is sometimes called “Hanging the Greens,” is the more

    Advent is a celebration of hope concerning the arrival and appearing of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This message looks at some of the symbolism and prophecies related to Advent. This sermon can also be used for Epiphany.

    Today marks the official first day of Advent. Advent is a celebration of hope concerning the arrival, or appearing, of the Messiah who was foretold by the prophets of old; the Messiah, Jesus Christ, who appeared on the scene bringing salvation from our sins. In Titus chapter 2, we read, “For more

    This message focuses on the wise men and the gifts they presented to the newborn Savior. In viewing the symbolism of the gifts, we can learn more about the great plan of our Lord to save His people from their sins.

    I wish to begin this morning with a prophecy of the Messiah found in Isaiah 60:1-3, and verse 6: “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and more

  • 4. Joseph: A Divine Example

    Joseph, serving as Jesus’ earthly father figure, was an exemplary father. He was not only an excellent role model for his son, but within Joseph lies a certain character trait, which just happens to be Jesus’ strongest attribute.

    The Christian singer Michael Card wrote a piece entitled Joseph’s Song. To begin this morning, I’m going to read a few lines from this song. Listen closely, and from what you know about Joseph from the Bible, think about whether or not these words could’ve come from Joseph’s own heart: Lord I more

  • 5. Mary, Did You Know?

    Based on the song "Mary, Did You Know." Was Mary in need of salvation, although she bore the holy Christ child? Did she ever know why the child she delivered had come into the world? This message seeks to answer these questions.

    The title for our message comes from a song written by the Christian comedian Mark Lowry, and originally sung by the Christian vocalist Michael English; and the song is entitled, “Mary, Did You Know?” One stanza of the song says: Mary did you know that your baby boy would one day walk on more

    Luke taught Theophilus what had been delivered unto him by eyewitnesses concerning Jesus. This teaching included not only the life of Jesus, but it included Old Testament prophecy and theological and spiritual lessons too.

    I’ve entitled our message this morning, “Do You Believe, Theophilus?” When we take the time to read Luke chapter 1, verses 1-4, we learn how the gospel of Luke was written to instill a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ in a person by the name of Theophilus, who was actually a student of Luke (v. 4); more

  • 7. The Genealogy Of The Savior

    Through the genealogies found in the first chapter of Matthew, we gain an overview of salvation history, one which portrays how God was orchestrating throughout history His plan of salvation; a plan that unfolds in the birth of Jesus.

    Christmas is upon us, and I’m sure that many of us are familiar with Handel’s Messiah. In one of the pieces from The Messiah, Handel quotes a well-known verse from the prophet Isaiah, which is oftentimes used around Christmas: “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the more

    This text reveals a promise that God would provide Mary with a very special gift within her womb, the gift of a son; but she would not be able to "unwrap" this gift until she submitted and believed the Lord’s promise to give it to her.

    Christmas time is upon us. When asked to name something about Christmas many people will mention gifts or presents. It’s always exiting to receive a gift! Amen? This morning we are going to see how the Lord would provide Mary with a very special gift within her womb, the gift of a son. He more

    Mary and all Israel hoped in a Savior who would provide His people with salvation from sin and redemption unto God. In this passage, Mary was finally able to confidently declare her hope aloud through song and call Him “God my Savior.”

    I’ve entitled our message for this morning “A Song of Hope.” The passage we’re going to see is often called the “Song of Mary.” In Mary’s words, we hear an expression of anticipation and joy in the coming fulfillment of her hope. So, what was Mary’s hope? Mary had the same hope as all the nation more

  • 10. Good News In An Unexpected Place

    In this message, we will see how the birth announcement of the King of Kings wasn’t delivered to the rich or royal, but it was instead delivered in the least expected place. It was delivered to some lowly shepherds.

    When people send out baby shower invitations, they primarily mail them to family and friends. I once saw a really funny movie, a comedy, where a couple sent out fake shower announcements when they weren’t really going to have a baby. They were in debt and needed some money to pay off their bills, more

  • 11. The Lowly King Of Kings

    When people came looking for the Messiah they expected to see “a reed shaken in the wind,” or a wealthy and mighty king. Instead of finding a wealthy king, they found the Christ who was meek and humble; born in a place of low esteem.

    Our message for today is a reflection on the lowly and humble estate of our King of Kings. To begin this morning, turn in your Bibles to Isaiah chapter 9, and we will look at verses 1-2, and 6-7. What I am about to read are the words of the prophet Isaiah concerning the entrance of our Savior more

    The word “impossible” means nothing to God! The birth of a baby born to a virgin was a miracle! The Lord can also miraculously bring light to a dark situation. “Never doubt in the dark, what God spoke while you were in the light.”

    I’ve entitled our message this morning, “Nothing Is Impossible,” as we briefly touch on the account of how baby Jesus was born to the Virgin Mary. I would like to begin with some inspirational quotes and illustrations; and I’ll start by sharing one entitled “Impossible Takes Longer.” Charles F. more

    Micah prophesied during the reigns of four kings. He probably wondered whether any administration would last. It was to this humble prophet that God sent a prophecy of the birthplace of a Ruler whose kingdom would never fade away.

    This morning, we’re going to examine a passage from the book of Micah that relates to the Christmas season; and I’ve entitled our message, “A Ruler Called Peace.” “Micah [prophesied] during the reigns of four kings in Israel and three kings in Judah. He probably wondered, as he watched the parade more

    This passage contains numerous prophecies of the Messiah; one of them being how "Shiloh" must come before the arrival of God’s kingdom of peace and justice. Also discussed are the "Scepter" and the "Lion of the Tribe of Judah."

    Christian author Phyllis Reynolds Naylor wrote a book entitled A Shiloh Christmas, which is about a small boy named Marty Preston and his rescued beagle dog Shiloh, who are eagerly waiting for Christmas to arrive, as their town is running low on love and compassion; or what we might call “Christmas more

    People like presents, especially good ones that are useful, and that reveal how the giver put forth some thought into the purchase. In the Bible we are told of the best gift of all! “The gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

    Everyone likes to receive presents; however, there are some we could probably live without. Christmas time is when the majority of gifts are given, and it seems to be the occasion when some of the worst ones are purchased during those last minute shopping trips. A survey was conducted in which more
