    With Great Joy Acts 1:12-14 In the previous passage we learned that the Ascension of Jesus into glory to sit at the right hand of the Father is the central point of Luke and Acts which makes the Ascension the most important event of the two books. We discussed the reasons why. The Jesus’ more

    Starting from the angels promise of "good news of great joy," this sermon asks why Christians often don't see "great joy" in their lives.

    WHERE IS IT? The angel promised that this was good news of great joy. - Luke 2:10. - This passage has been repeated frequently enough during Christmastime that sometimes lose sight of its truth and just treat it as a cliché. The angel meant what he said: this was a message of good news of more

    Jesus is the reason for the season and the whole reason we can be joyful.

    Matthew 2:10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. This is definitely the time of year to celebrate and remember the birth of our Lord and Savior. If you read the Gospel accounts of the 3 wise men you will see that they traveled a very long distance to get to more

    Through the visitation of the shepherds and magi we see that Christ was indeed good news of great joy for all people.

    The Christmas story is so familiar to us that we tend to view it through rose colored glasses. We tend to sanitize the scene to make it seem beautiful, pristine. Our nativities represent a postcard picture of Jesus in a pristine creche as he lies in a manger on a bed of hay or straw. It is more

    The traditional theme for the Third Sunday of Advent is Joy. This sermon, originally prepared for that Sunday, is based on the Angel’s message to the Shepherds in Luke 2, "I Bring You Good Tidings of Great Joy."

    Good Tidings of great Joy --Luke 2:8-14 What would be your response if you suddenly had an encounter with one of heaven’s angels? Angels are super beings; they are more powerful and intelligent that we are, but they are not omnipotent and omniscient like God. Therefore, it is only natural more

    The message of Advent and the birth of Jesus are about joy. Joy is not found in gifts but in the Person, Jesus Christ.

    Good News of Great Joy Luke 2:8-20 One of my favorite Christmas Carols is “Joy to the World, the Lord has come.” The message of Advent and the birth of Jesus are about joy. The angel announced to the shepherds: “I bring you good news of great joy for everyone! The Savior, yes, the more

    Before we believe in Jesus, we are like the water jars: empty, stony hard hearts, sitting off to the side doing nothing. But Jesus is able to fill us, fill us to the brim, and transform us and then use us to bring joy to others. Believe it. Don’t think th

They are places where people work, live, and perhaps celebrate, but not where they simply enjoy themselves. more
