God With Us, God For Us

undefined

Speaker: Steven Parkin | Date: December 9, 2018 | Text: Matthew 1:18-25

Sermon Summary

Jesus' virgin birth is central to the Christmas story. Born of the Spirit and not a human father, he is the sinless Son of God. As Isaiah prophesied, Jesus is Immanuel, God with us, whose coming signifies salvation. At the cross, God with us becomes God for us. Jesus showed initiative in dying for us while we were still sinners. Will you respond to his initiative by faith and repentance?

Jesus, Son of David, Son of Abraham

Speaker: Michael Dietzel | Date: December 2, 2018 | Text: Matthew 1:1-17

Sermon Summary

It's easy to be desensitized to Jesus' birth at Christmas. We can be caught up in traditions, shopping, and family and miss the significance of the incarnation. However, we need to see that his birth fulfills centuries of expectation of the promises of God. As the descendant of Abraham, Jesus is the one who brings the promised blessing to the world in the form of salvation. And as the descendant of David, Jesus is the eternal king who reigns over all. Through faith, we can receive this blessing. And through repentance, we can submit to his rule. What is your response to Jesus?

The Famine of Abraham's Faith

Speaker: Roger Johansen | Date: November 11, 2018 | Text: Genesis 12:10-20

Sermon Summary

The story of Abraham's encounter with Pharaoh in Genesis 12 illustrates the far reaching effects of where we place our faith. The decisions that we make affect not only ourselves, but also those around us. We must take consider where we are placing our faith. It is tempting to rely on our reason, intellect, or strength. But we must look to the one who reigns over all and cares for us.
