Christmas Sunday - 2011

 Sunday School
Ephesians 1:1-23

Paul is writing to the faithful followers of Christ Jesus.
We have insight into the will of God.
Because of Christ we have received an inheritance from God.
God's purpose was that we who were the first to trust in Christ should praise our glorious God. And now,  you also have heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you.  And when you believe in Christ, he identified you as His own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom He promised long ago.  The Spirit is God's guarantee that He will give us everything He promised and that He has purchased us to be His own people.  This is just one more reason for us to praise our glorious God.

Sermon - Brief
Matthew 2:1-3
"The Significance of Jesus' Birth"

There are 3 attitudes we tend to take when it comes to the birth of Jesus:
1. Indifference
2. Spirit of hostility
3. An attitude of worship
Christ came to impact our belief system in Him
Influence our lifestyles
Determine our destiny
Isaiah 7:14 - Alright then, the Lord, Himself will choose the sign. Look! The virgin conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel - God is with us.
Isaiah 9:6-7 - For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. And the government will rest on his shoulders. These will be his royal titles:  Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  His ever expanding, peaceful government will never end.  He will rule forever with fairness and justice from the throne of His ancestor David. The passionate commitment of the Lord Almighty will guarantee this!

A luncheon was served to the Pastor and his wonderful family after services along with much laughter and warm wishes of Christmas cheer!
