THE FIRST SUNDAY IN ADVENT

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

 

Introduction:

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?

 

Conclusion:

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