The Purpose of His Coming (Luke 2:6-11)Pastor Jared Shumate, December 23, 2018
Part of the His Coming series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Sunday Morning, December 23rd, 2108 - The Purpose of His Coming - Pastor Jared Shumate
This morning our choir opened up our Christmas service with a wonderful series of songs celebrating the birth of our Savior! We worshiped together with them as they sang of His birth. But we rejoiced in knowing that He's coming again!
As we head into Christmas celebrations over the next couple days, Pastor Jared showed us the "why" behind Christmas. So what was the Purpose of His Coming? His coming was a fulfillment of old proclamations. It was an exhibition of His Power and His Passion.
Why do we celebrate Christmas? What was the purpose of His birth? He came for YOU because He loves YOU! He came to die for YOU!
The gift of Christmas is the He came and died for you! But you can not experience the joy of that gift until you receive it!

6And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. 7And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. 8And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. (KJV)
