Sunday 12.23.18 (the simple faith of Christmas)

This Sunday we’ll continue our journey through Luke and take a look at the simple, uncluttered faith that Mary and Elizabeth expressed in response to Gabriel’s announcement that Mary would become miraculously pregnant with Jesus. Then on Monday night, we will celebrate Christmas with our annual Christmas Eve service at 6pm. We hope to see you there!

Sermon Notes
The Simple Faith of Christmas ~ Luke 1:26-52

The sermon in one sentence: Trust in and praise God with a simple faith like Mary and Elizabeth

  • Strive for a simple, uncluttered faith (1:26-45)
    • “Simple” faith is not immature or basic
    • Rather, it takes God at his word, asks sincere questions for clarity, sees God as the God of infinite possibilities, and takes joy in the promises of God
  • With a simple faith, trust in Jesus as the Great, One-and-Only King (1:31-35)
  • With a simple faith, praise God for who he is and what he has done (1:46-56)
