Sermon Description

The Magnificat refers to the song Mary sings after visiting Elizabeth, who herself is miraculously with child. Magnificat is the Latin word for magnify, as in “My soul magnifies the Lord.” In this song, the Lord’s grace and power are magnified through a Great Inversion – where things that are down will be lifted up and up things will be knocked down. All because of this baby in Mary's womb.

Sermon Description

Why did you come into this world? That’s actually a ridiculous question to ask any of us. None of us had a particular purpose. None of us had a say in the matter. We were just born. It just happened to us. But Jesus is different. Like us, he was born. But unlike us, he decided to come into this world. He had a purpose. This purpose is addressed in our text under two broad categories: consolation and confrontation.

Sermon Description

Most nativity scenes feature the holy family, shepherds, wise men, angels, and barn animals, but the one character conspicuously missing is a great red dragon. In John’s vision, we’re reminded that behind the scenes of the familiar Christmas story lays a great cosmic war that has been fought since the beginning of time.

Sermon Description

At the heart of Christmas is the message of God drawing near to us in the person of Jesus Christ. The Son of God willingly left his seat at the Father's side to come down and identify with humanity in every respect, including our weaknesses. That's what makes him a perfect High Priest and what gives us the confidence to draw near to God in times of need.

Sermon Description

The visit of the Magi is a familiar Christmas story. Which is why it’s surprising to discover that, at heart, it has to do with God's passion and plan for his Son to receive exceedingly glad worship from all the peoples of the earth. It's a plan still unfolding today. A plan that every believer is called to join.

Sermon Description

For many people, Christmas is about lights and decorations. It puts us in a festive mood. For the ancient people of God, Christmas was also about light but in a much more profound sense. Putting them in a surprised and humbled mood.
