Our Christmas Eve & Day sermons are...

12.25 Returning with Joy
We’ll soon return to “business as usual” with the holidays over, but with a treasure of joy.

Current Series:
Remembrance
Our Christmas celebrations bridge the gap between back then, right now, and what’s still to come, as well as, back there, right here, and over yonder.

Grand Gifts
God’s goodness and mercy aren’t left the past; they stack up to give us this present, promising the future fulfillment of what they signify.

...#2 Review the history behind v6. See Exodus 33:7-11, 40:34-38; Numbers 11:24-30; Joshua 3:14-17, 6:1-15; 18:1, 19:51, 22:9; Judges 20:26–28; 1 Samuel 21–22; 2 Samuel 6:17; 1 Kings 3:2–4, 8:4; 1 Chronicles 13:5–6, 15:1, 16:39, 21:29; 2 Chronicles 1:2–6, 13; Psalm 78:54-72 How does it provide a prototype for the promise of Emmanuel- God with us? See Isaiah 7:10-16; Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38 How about for the promise of the Holy Spirit? See Isaiah 11:1-10; John 15:26--16:15; Acts 1:1-5, 2:1-4; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19; Ephesians 2:20-22; 1 Peter 2:5

Sunday's Sermon
No sermon this week during the children's Sunday School program

Current Preaching Series
Finite & Infinite
God’s infinite promises come down to us in our finite world, especially in Jesus’ promised return.

#4 The Magnificat also holds a mirror up to us so that we may see ourselves, warts & all. Where is the Lord preparing you for Jesus’ arrival by calling you to repent of being the king of the hill, top of the heap? Your pride? Power? Prestige? Privilege? Pedigree? Personality traits (flaws)? Position? (misdirected) Passion? (misguided) Purpose? Impiety? Ambition? Greed? What awaits your failure to repent (vv51-53)? See 2 Thessalonians 1:1-12; 2 Peter 2:1-10a

By the way, our Wednesday Sermon and Series is...
To Rescue the Godly (12.16.2020)
 the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trial, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment -2 Peter 2:9
How to Hear a Sermon 
Why do we bother with sermons and what are they good for? They open God's Word to us, both his Law and his Gospel. They're not self-help motivation or instructional lectures.

Sunday's Sermon
The Point
We’re not sure just how far away our breaking point is. Jesus gives the “signs of the times” an infinite purpose

#3 Review Mark 2:17, Luke 15:7, Romans 2:4; 2 Corinthians 7:9-10; 2 Peter 3:9; 1 John 1:8-9. What’s the point of repentance? To embarrass you before God, who already knows everything about you (cf. Psalms 94:11, 139:2, 23; Matthew 10:30)? Look up repentance in your study Bible & read the Augsburg Confession XII. Where does the old joke, “I know I’m going the wrong way, but I’m making great time!” apply to your life? AC available bookofconcord.org
