Simeon’s Song: Declaring God’s Salvation and God’s Savior

Simeon declares that God’s salvation in Jesus is for all peoples. But he also prophesies that some will reject God’s Savior, Jesus.

Scripture: Luke 2:22-35

The King Is Born!

Christ is the great central fact of the world’s history. To him, everything looks forward or backward. All the lines of history converge upon him. All the great purposes of God culminate in him. The greatest and most momentous fact that the history of the world records is the fact of his birth.  Charles Haddeon Spurgeon

Scripture: Luke 2:1-21

Jesus Is Coming!

We live in a world where each day we experience hardship/heartbreak and we need to know that God comes through on His promises. History is culminating in the birth of Jesus and if we’re in Jesus, our life has meaning/purpose as He’s been orchestrating all of this together for our good and His glory.

Scripture: Luke 1:57-80

Mary’s Song

How do we worship in the midst of life-altering circumstances? When Mary is told she will be the mother of the Son of God, her life is changed in a unique, wonderful, and yet dangerous way. She has plenty to be anxious about, plenty to be afraid of, but she’s not self-absorbed, anxious, fearful, or hopeless. Instead, she believes God’s word and trusts His purposes and as a result, her heart is free to sing! The true spirit of Christmas is the spirit of worship, and worship is our response to God’s revelation of Himself. We learn to worship, even when life is hard by listening to Mary’s song.

Scripture: Luke 1:39-56
