Room for Jesus
SERMON TOPIC: Room for Jesus
Speaker: Gavin Paynter
Date: 25 December 2018
Topic Groups: CHRISTMAS, LUKE, SALVATION
Sermon synopsis: There was no room for Jesus at his birth.
But there was no room for him even in his death - and so he was buried in a borrowed tomb.
And there had been no room for him in his ministry:
Sadly the only room Jerusalem had for Jesus was on a cross.
Does our modern world have room for Jesus this Christmas?
Jesus came to our world as a poor peasant baby born in the most humble circumstances. But his prophesied title was ‘Immanuel’ meaning “God with us”.
Are you like those who were unaware of God’s visitation – or do you, like the Magi and the shepherds, use this as a time to pay homage to your king and redeemer?
