Sermon Notes: There must be MORE to Christmas than being weary, worn out and totally exhausted. JESUS is the MORE we are all searching for! Luke 2:1-7.
Question: Have you ever stopped to really imagine how utterly exhausted MARY must have been by the time she gave birth to JESUS on that first Christmas Day?
‘Mary and Joseph set off on this horrendous journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem v4.
Sermon Notes: Luke Chapter 1 verse 1 to 25.
So come on… Get ready… He is coming… Are you willing to believe what God is saying to you today?
When we pick up this story in Luke Chapter One, God has NOT spoken, even a whisper from heaven in something like 400 years (since the book of Malachi), the last Book in the Old Testament. That’s a lot of silence.
Sermon Notes: Advent – Come Lord Jesus.
Advent: The Arrival of the King! The first coming of JESUS the King into our world! His incarnation in flesh! The birth of JESUS at Christmas!
Add a few letters to ADVENT and you get ADVENTURE! To venture by very nature is to RISK!
What a risk GOD took in sending, releasing His One, His only Son, and to come into our sin sick, sin broken world.
Sermon Notes: Ten Commandments. Do Not Murder.
1: Murder is a serious crime because once it is done it cannot be undone!
As a society we have lost that sense of the sacredness of a human life, the preciousness of human life, the value of human life. Violence is being pumped into our culture by so many different avenues. They say by the time a child grows up they will have viewed thousands of murders and acts of violence on television and at the cinema.
Sermon Notes: Ten commandments. Exodus 20 verse 12.
How am I to honour my parents?
It depends on what stage of life you’re in; how you apply this command.
1: As a child I honour parents by obeying and respecting them.
Colossians 3:20: ‘Children, obey your parents in everything for this pleases the Lord.’
This command applies as long as you are under your parent’s roof. As long as they’re providing for you and you are dependent upon them.
