The Gifts of Christmas Part 1


Sermon Title: The Gift of Hope

Sermon Theme: Light In The Darkness

Sermon Text: Isaiah 9:1-4; John 1:1-5



Isaiah 9:1-4; John 1:1-5

Advent is the SEASON FOR REFLECTING upon the meaning of the BIRTH OF JESUS as we prepare to celebrate Christmas.

It is also a season to THINK TOGETHER about what the LORD REQUIRES OF US as we anticipate His second coming.


1) Our hope is in the PAST.

II Kings 15:29; Hebrews 11:1


2) Our hope is in the PRESENT.

I John 2:9; Psalm 23; Luke 1:78-79; Hebrews 6:19


3) Our hope is in the FUTURE.

I John 2:10; John 8:12; Matthew 5:14-16; Romans 8:24-25


Is the world BRIGHTER and ore filled with LIGHT because YOU ARE HERE?

Or is the world more DARKER and filled with FEAR AND HATE?



Christ is calling us to ACCEPT His light, to LIVE IN His light, and to TAKE HIS light into the world.
