Summary: This sermon looks at the three titles about the newborn baby shared in Luke 2:11. It then unpacks what that title means and what it tells me about who I am and how I should live my life.
- In the midst of this Christmas proclamation from the angel, verse 11 has an amazing amount of information about this newborn child. Specifically, it shares three titles with us that each point us to a different aspect of who this child is.
- As we unpack these titles, each gives us insight into Jesus.
- I want to share the meaning of each title, reference one of the things we say about ourselves that is relevant to that title, unpack what the title says about me, and then ask how we should respond.
