Scriptures: Jer. 31:31-37, Lk 2:8-10, Matt. 1:21-25
Sermon Title: your chrismas gift
· I have issues with Chrismas.
o How its celebrated
o Profane distortion of gift giving
o The surrender to the world, commercials
· It’s okay to give gifts to each other but remember we are celebrating the greatest gift one can receive, that is the gift of God. The gift of salvation through Jesus Christ
o God has given you a gift
· What happen to the gift you buy your kids at Christmas?
o How long do they last?
o Bored, broken, ( you trip over them)
· God gives us a gift we cant destroy or get bored with
· Ads promise:
o Peace of mind
o Piece of the rock prudential
o Your in good hands with All-state
o Hair club for men, can make your head look good but they cant transform your mind
o Jen greg can forgive your calories but not your sins
Put it in God’s hands
Slaves and leftovers
