The Coming of the King
Luke 2:1-7 • December 22, 2019 • Murray Lee
Jesus came to us on a quiet night in Bethlehem 2000 years ago and his mother wrapped him in strips of cloth and lay him in a feeding trough for animals. He who could robe himself in all the galaxies of the universe came robed in cloth. He who sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty who rules in his rightful place where all the saints cast their golden crowns at his feet, came lying in a manger. Why a manger? Because God’s people needed rescuing.
The Father's Work Through the Son
Luke 1:67-79 • December 15, 2019 • Murray Lee
Like a sunrise that lights the darkness, Zechariah’s prophecy in Luke 1:67-79 shines the hope of the coming of Jesus into the darkness of a sin-wrecked world. Here we learn how the Father’s work through Jesus is used to save us and enable us to serve him with joy.
Rejoicing in the Coming of the King!
Luke 1:26-38 • December 1, 2019 • Murray Lee
After 400 years of silence from God, he sends the angel Gabriel to visit Mary to give her the most climactic news of all time: Jesus is coming. King Jesus is coming to rescue his people out of the world of loneliness, hopelessness and sin and to bring them into his kingdom of relationship, freedom and holiness. Rejoice!
