What Did You Get For Christmas?

Weekend Services – December 26th & 27th– Pastor George Dupree

2 Corinthians 9:15 Thank God for his Son—a gift too wonderful for words! For Christmas We Get 1.Presence

1. Presence
Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.

Psalm 48: 14 For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.

“If God wanted to communicate to birds he would become a bird- If God wanted to communicate to cows he would become a cow- If God wanted to communicate to a pig he would become a pig. “But he wanted to communicate to human beings so he became one of us.”

2. Pardon
Luke 4:18 God’s Spirit is on me; he’s chosen me to preach the Message of good news to the poor, Sent me to announce pardon to prisoners and recovery of sight to the blind, To set the burdened and battered free.

Romans 3:24 God did it for us. Out of sheer generosity he put us in right standing with himself. A pure gift.

Romans 3:24 …He got us out of the mess we’re in and restored us to where he always wanted us to be. And he did it by means of Jesus Christ

3. Purpose
We were made by God for God – when you find your purpose you find out who you are… who you were really meant to be

 Jeremiah 29:11 I will bless you with a future filled with hope — a future of success, not of suffering.  12 You will turn back to me and ask for help, and I will answer your prayers

John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly

Jesus didn’t come to give you religion he came to give you a life – so unwrap the gift and enjoy all that Jesus came to bring to you

I pray that the LORD will bless and protect you, and that he will show you mercy and kindness. May the LORD be good to you and give you peace Numbers 6:24 - 26
