What's So Great About Christmas? | Light

In the  book of Luke an angel appears to Zechariah and tells him that he and his wife will have a baby named John, who will pave the way for Jesus.  Zechariah doubts the angel because of he and his wife's advanced age and as a result loses his ability to speak.  After almost a year without being able to speak after the birth of John, Zechariah opened his mouth to not only speak about his son, John the Baptist, but also about Jesus.  He said Jesus' coming into the world would be like the sunrise coming in a dark morning.  Pastor Scott encourages us to remember that Jesus is the light of the world, without him we would have no idea who God is like, we would be in the dark.  Jesus is God and knowing him is knowing God.

In this message Pastor Scott preaches about the wonderful, powerful gift of salvation that comes through Jesus.  This is a gift we should never become indifferent towards but should always be meditating on its importance.  Looking at the story of the shepherds in the book of Luke, we see the glory and joy with which God made the announcement to the world.  An announcement made to shepherds, those who weren't looked upon very highly in their world.  These shepherds became some of the first preachers, proclaiming the good news that the angels revealed to them as they searched for Jesus in Bethlehem.

In this third message of the Christmas series we look at the crowning achievement of Christ coming into the world. The ultimate aim of God from eternity past was to bring a people to himself. His purpose was to have a people that would be his people and he would be their God. In this message Pastor Scott reminds us that Christ came to remove the barrier between God and humanity to give us the nearness of God.
