- Date: Sunday, December 9, 2018
- Speaker: Eric Van Scharrel
- Series: The Stories of Christmas
- Scripture: John 3:16-21
“Thanks be to God for His indescribable GIFT!” -2 Corinthians 9:15
The Father DELIGHTS in giving the gift of Jesus.
What was your “holy grail” of gifts as a child?
Focus on the FACE of the Father.
“But when the time had fully come, God sent His Son…” -Galatians 4:4
“All peoples on earth will be BLESSED through you.” -Genesis 12:3
“The Lord Himself will give you a SIGN…” -Isaiah 7:14
“I will make a NEW covenant…I will remember their SINS no more.” -Jeremiah 31:31, 34
“For God so LOVED the world that He GAVE His one and only Son…” -John 3:16
There is NO ONE else to whom we can turn, nothing else to plot or plan that would result in the gift of Christmas.
Challenge: Find a way to give a gift that brings JOY to both the RECIPIENT and the GIVER.
