Rewire

Now, this morning, beginning in verse 12, we’re going to see him engage more directly with their mistake. And as we read verses 12 through 34 together, I want you to be on the lookout for three themes. Three themes to see here. First, in verses 12 through 19, the pitiable consequences of a dead Christ. If there’s no resurrection, well then, so what? What difference does it...

Songs of Christmas

Sermon on Dec 29, 2004

Now, if you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 98, and if you do not have this handout–everybody have this handout? If you’ll keep that handout in hand, it's got the words to Joy to The World on it, so you won't have to balance both your hymnal and your Bible.

This is the final of our “Songs of Christmas”...

Sermon on Dec 27, 2004

Luke 2:8-15

Turn with me now to the Gospel of Luke, and the second chapter, and we’ll read once again the familiar words of the Nativity story as we find it in Luke's Gospel, beginning at verse eight. This is God's holy and inerrant word:  

“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the fields, keeping watch over their flocks by night. And lo,

Songs of Christmas

Sermon on Dec 27, 2004

2 Corinthians 8:9

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to II Corinthians. We’ll look at one of the verses that lies behind this beautiful Christmas carol–unknown to many of you, from the sound of your singing! But a story behind this carol, I think I can confidently say, will endear its precious words to your heart. II Corinthians, chapter eight, verse nine. Before we read...

Sermon on Dec 23, 2004

Luke 2:8-9

Now turn with me if you would to Luke chapter 2, and I'm going to read from verses 8 and 9. But before I do that, I want to draw attention to a verse in I Corinthians 14, and verse 15. And let me read this verse to you first of all: I Corinthians 14:15. And it's the second half of the verse that I want to allude...

Songs of Christmas

Sermon on Dec 19, 2004

Luke 2:13-14

If you’d take your hymnals in hand and turn with me to No. 203, we’ll look at the text of this hymn that the choir has so beautifully sung, and we’ll consider it before we read the passage upon which it is based. We’re going to be looking at Luke 2, verses 13 and 14, and this carol by Charles Wesley, one of the many hundreds of carols...

Sermon on Dec 16, 2004

Luke 2:7

Now turn with me, if you would, to the Gospel of Luke, and in chapter two, and verse seven. The Gospel of Luke, in chapter two, and verse seven.

Songs of Christmas

Sermon on Dec 13, 2004

Luke 2:8-11

If you have your Bibles, we'll begin in Luke 2 at verse 8. And, if you'll open your hymnals to number 207, we will cross-reference from Luke 2 back to the hymnal again.

We've said in this series on the Songs of Christmas that it is our desire to do at least three things. One is that we want you to understand the words of these...

Songs of Christmas

Sermon on Dec 12, 2004

Matthew 1:18-25

Turn with me now in the Scriptures to Matthew, chapter one, and we're going to read verses 18 through 25; and if you can be ambidextrous this morning, have open before you the hymn, the carol that the choir sang so beautifully (but in slightly different words to the words the choir was singing), so we need the words, not in the bulletin, but in the hymnbook, of...

Songs of Christmas

Sermon on Dec 6, 2004

Micah 5:1-5

As we continue this evening in a series that began last Wednesday and will be running through the month of December, we're looking at well-known Christmas carols and looking at some theological reflections on these Christmas carols and allowing them to be windows into Scriptures that are also extremely well-known to us.

Two passages of Scripture come to the surface this evening. The carol in view...

Sermon on Dec 2, 2004

Luke 2:10

Now have your hymnbooks at the ready as well as the Bible, of course. We’re going to look first of all at Luke, chapter two, and I'm going to read from verse eight through to verse twenty-one.
