Please Skip to 1:25 for the start of the Sermon. We apologize for the inconvenience.

 

Not all were thrilled with the birth of Jesus. Not all were prepared for what it would mean in their own lives. Today we see the reality of what happens when God’s mercy in the flesh, collides with the worst of atrocities that hide in the darkness of the heart. Yet, we stand in awe of Christ, who is mercy incarnate.

Stand in Awe of Christ, who is Immanuel 

Emmanuel or Immanuel? We see it both ways throughout the Christmas prophecies and accounts. The difference is the language it was written in, Hebrew or Greek. Either way it has the same incredible meaning, God with us! This Christmas we stand in awe of Christ, who is God with US!

We pray you enjoy the sights, food, family, and gifts of this season. They’re gifts from God. But there’s more, infinitely more, to enjoy. This Christmas, stand in awe of Christ. Because of the miracle of Christmas, blessings overflow into your life. That’s why we worship him. We’re glad you’re joining us to do so.

If you ever think, I wish I knew what God was like, look at Jesus. If you ever think, I wish I knew what God would say, listen to Jesus' words. That's what God says. There's one God, and Jesus, his one and only Son, makes him known. People all around us are groping in the dark trying to find God. Look at Jesus, and you’ll find him. If you were lost in dark woods and saw a light in the distance, you'd know that if you could just get to that light, you'd be home. Here’s the point of our worship: we fix our eyes on Jesus and trust he will lead us home. We’re glad you’re with us.

What's the most common reaction to seeing the glory of God throughout the Bible? You'd think it would be joy, elation, awe, and wonder, right? "And they were terrified" is actually the most common reaction people have when in the presence of the glory of God. Yet, there in the manger, we gaze into the glory of God, not with terror, but with awe that God took on flesh for us! Today we stand in awe of Christ as we gaze upon his glory and see how he's given his glory to us!

Come, stay with me. To how many people would you quickly say that? A hunch is, not many for a host of reasons, both obvious and nuanced. The Apostle John describes Jesus as God who became flesh and then adds, "he made his home with us." He came to us. Some of the meaning behind that is obvious. Jesus is God with us. But some of it is deeply nuanced. May the Spirit bless you through is revelation of God today. The goal isn't to become smarter (although that happens), the goal is, this Christmas, to stand in awe of Christ.

Welcome to Advent, a season of preparation. Our worship for the next four weeks will not only anticipate the reality of Christ’s return, but our worship will also help us prepare for the real Christmas. There is a kind of Christmas that's too easy, too shallow, and too trite. But there's another kind that would fill the Grand Canyon with life-changing truth. That's the kind we're after. This Advent season, prepare to stand in awe of Christ this Christmas.
