Advent and Christmas Sermon Series

Morning Services – December 2018

Jesus wrote no books, commanded no army, ruled no nation, left no monument, owned nothing, lived rough, died young and was given a hurried, unceremonious burial in someone else’s tomb.

But his extraordinary influence fits his unique personality.

No one is more famous, written about, quoted, revered or reviled. In fact, no figure has made a greater impact on human history than Jesus of Nazareth, of that there is little doubt.

The Bible claims that he wasn’t just born; he was sent. Why? Why did he come?

As we approach and celebrate Christmas, we are going to look at 5 statements in the New Testament, including 3 from Jesus’ own lips, that explain why he came to earth.

Then finally, at the end of the year, we will celebrate his coming to our world by exploring Isaiah’s ancient prophecy that all nations will come to the dawning brightness of his light.
