The Gospel of a King

Matthew 2:1-12

January 6, 2019 • Mr. Jesse Robinson

Throughout Advent we prepare for the coming of Jesus. During Christmas we celebrate the birth of Jesus. On Epiphany we remember the visit of the wise men and their gifts to Jesus. In the season after Epiphany we try and embody the life and ministry of Jesus. This Sunday, January 6th, is Epiphany! Come and celebrate with us. Our worship service liturgy will have a special Epiphany theme. Jesse Robinson will be preaching an Epiphany sermon on the visit of the wise men from Matthew 2:1-12, and we will be serving the traditional Three Kings Cakes after the service in the chapel hall! Jesse is a long-time friend of Redeemer and is currently finishing this Ph.D from the University of Virginia in theology. To best prepare for Sunday, keep celebrating Christmas for another day. Then read, meditate, and pray through the visit of the wise men in Matthew 2:1-12. As you do, reflect on the humility of Jesus as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The King who was not born in the splendor of a royal palace, but in the simplicity of a lowly manger. Pastor Adam

Jesus & Nicodemus

John 3:1-15 • January 13, 2019 • Rev. Adam Feichtmann

What is your life about? This Sunday begins the season that comes after Epiphany and before Lent. It's a two-month period for the church to focus our attention on the life and ministry of Jesus Christ, before making our way to the cross and resurrection. It's a time to remind ourselves that our lives are found in Christ, so that ultimately others may see Christ in us. In an effort to ground our lives in Christ this season, we will be looking at various interactions Jesus had with individuals, recorded in the Gospel of John. This Sunday we'll begin by studying John 3:1-15, the story of Jesus and his conversation with a Pharisee named Nicodemus. To best prepare for Sunday, I recommend you read, meditate, and pray through the above verses. Reflect on how Nicodemus comes to Jesus with answers, but instead leaves confused. I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday! Pastor Adam
