Simply the Best Place to Be

Sermon Scripture:  Luke 2:8-20 Sermon Big Idea:  Being in the shadow of the power of the most high works best if we simply accept who God is and what He did for us.

Partiality

The wise men’s hearts were overshadowed by worship. Are they magi? (Daniel 1:20, 2:5, 2:24) Are they wise men? (1 Kings 10:7,9-10) Are they kings? (Isaiah 39:6, 60:10) Herod’s heart was overshadowed by worry and fear. King of the Jews? Builder and baby killer? (Matthew 2:16) The Priests and Scribes’ hearts were overshadowed by confusion. (Matthew 2:5-6) If they knew about Jesus why didn’t they worship Him? Why information without action? Do you seek Him as a magi, wise man, How COVID has affected us

In The Right Shadow

Luke 1:26-38, 45 Sermon Big Idea:  The power of the Most High overshadows our fears  Mary was greatly troubled, afraid, confused, but obedient. The power of the most high can overshadow our doubts, fears, and confusion. The power of the most high overshadows and then sends. When what we do is from the power of the Holy Spirit, it is holy. 1 Kings 19 God wants to hear from us what we perceive is wrong. God reveals Himself to us. How COVID has affected us

Seeking Jesus?

Big Idea:  When looking for Jesus you may not find what you are looking for, but if you do find Him you will find exactly what you need. Wise men were seeking a miracle – Matthew 2:1-2 Andrew and Peter were seeking a Messiah – John 1:35-39; Acts 1:6 Followers of Jesus were seeking manna – John 6:26 What are you seeking? The wise men knew it was Him by a sign – Matthew 2:9 Peter and Andrew knew it How COVID has affected us

A Rejected King

Sermon Scripture:  1 Samuel 16 Sermon Big Idea:  Rejection is a heart condition. Will we believe in our hearts how Jesus came into the world and what He came to do? Israel rejected God as King because they didn’t like what they could see. (1 Samuel 8:1-7) God rejected Saul as King because of what Saul wouldn’t see. (1 Samuel 13:13-14; 15:11,22,27-29) God rejected David’s brothers as King so that Israel may see. (1 Samuel 16:6-7) The world rejected Jesus How COVID has affected us

Don’t forget the bread

God uses an unlikely love story at the “house of bread” to fulfill his promise. Intro:  You can’t deny love as the overwhelming thread that holds together God and his people. Elimelech’s love was providing for his family. (Ruth 1:1-2) Naomi’s love was a willingness to release her family. (Ruth 1:8) Ruth’s love was the sacrifice of self. (Ruth 1:16-17) Boaz’s love was for God and His people. (Ruth 2:11; 4:9-10) God’s love is a promise kept. (Genesis 3:15; Isaiah How COVID has affected us

The One Who Saves

The prison of peace Isaiah 9:6 – completeness, soundness Luke 2:14 – “among those with whom he is pleased.” Matthew 10:34 – a state of national tranquility Our thoughts on peace are… Be accepting Be agreeable Be amicable Peace as it pertains to Jesus is… Contrary to the world – John 14:25-27 Justification – Romans 5:1-5 Readiness – Ephesians 6:13-15 A sign – Galatians 5:22-23 A gift – Philippians 4:4-7 Isaiah 9:6 Isaiah prophesied that the One who was coming How COVID has affected us

The Golden Child

David’s appearance was as a shepherd David’s appearance was as a servant David’s appearance was selfish David’s appearance was senseless 1 Samuel 171 Samuel 16:1-7 But God didn’t look at his appearance.  God looked on David’s heart!

The Black Sheep

God used Judah’s bad heart for good. (Gen. 37:26) God used an unrighteous act to transform Judah’s heart. (Gen. 38:26) Judah reveals his heart when he offers his life to save two. (Gen. 44:33-34) Judah’s reward is a blessing of all blessings. (Gen. 49:8-12) The black sheep of the family is a reminder that we all have sinned.  Don’t give up on him/her just like God didn’t give up on you.
