“The True Gift of Christmas”
Matthew 1:18-21; Other Passages
Introduction: How can a baby born 2000 years ago on the other side of the world bring the world to a stop, because it was no ordinary baby. What was God conspiring to do through this Baby? The Bible says, "God loved the world so much that He gave (He sent) His Son."
Jesus Was Sent To Forgive Our Past and Give Us a New Start (2 Corinthians 5:17, 21)
Jesus Was Sent That We Might Live in the Present in Peace (Isaiah 7:14) (Isaiah 9:6)
Jesus Was Sent To Fulfill A Promise For Our Future
“There is plenty of room for you in my Father’s home.
If that weren’t so,
would I have told you that I’m on my way
to get a room (mansion) ready for you?
And if I’m on my way to get your room ready,
I’ll come back and get you
so you can live where I live.”
(John 14:2-3—The Message)
Application: Have you received God's Christmas gift of Jesus?
I know that I am sinner
I want to receive your gifts of
a forgiven past
a future guarantee of eternal life.
Today I am making a commitment
to turn from my sins
and turn to your Son, Jesus
believing that He came to die for my sin.
In Jesus Name, Amen
