Series: A Child Is Given
Speaker: Jason Williams
As we move through this Advent season, we are focusing on Jesus as the Son of God who was given for us. In the sermon this past Sunday, we looked at prophesy about the birth of Jesus from Isaiah 8 & 9. Isaiah announced, 700 years before the birth of Jesus, that God would send a light to shine in the midst of our darkness and bring hope to our hopelessness. The “light” would be God’s own Son, born into the world to guide our lives as a wonderful and wise Counselor and lead us as a powerful King, who wages war on Satan, sin, and death in order to protect us and bring us peace. The Gospel of Luke introduces Baby Jesus as the child about whom Isaiah was prophesying. Christmas is the celebration of the birth of our Savior and King!
How does the birth of Jesus bring hope to your life in the midst of darkness and despair? Have you truly trusted in Jesus as your Savior and King?
