This Christmas: The Way

December 15, 2013 Speaker: Bruce Blagg Series: This Christmas

Passage: Luke 2:9–2:11

Luke 2:9-11 (NLT)

9 Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, 10 but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. 11 The Saviorâ€"yes, the Messiah, the Lordâ€"has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!

Genesis 3:15 (NLT)

And I will cause hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.”

Genesis 3:15 (NLT)

And I will cause hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.”

Isaiah 53:6 (NLT)

All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet the Lord laid on him the sins of us all.

Ezekiel 36:26â€"29 (NLT)

26 And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. 27 And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations. … 29 I will cleanse you of your filthy behavior.

A Savior who would …

1. Deliver them from the Penalty of Sin

2. Break the Power of Sin

3. Eliminate the Presence of Sin

Isaiah 55:12â€"13 (NLT)

12 You will live in joy and peace. The mountains and hills will burst into song, and the trees of the field will clap their hands! 13 Where once there were thorns, cypress trees will grow. Where nettles grew, myrtles will sprout up. These events will bring great honor to the Lord’s name; they will be an everlasting sign of his power and love.”

This Christmas …

1.  The Savior can deliver you from the Penalty of Sin.
2.  The Savior can break the Power of Sin within you.
3.  The Savior can work through you to remove Presence of Sin.
