Unashamed #6 – The Christmas Story

Luke 2:1-7
  • The manger is a sign for the shepherds.
  • It is a pointing finger, to the identity and task of the baby boy lying in it.
Luke 2:8-20 – Why was this such great news?
  • To answer that question, we have to understand that there are two parts to this story.
GREAT NEWS...
  • God gave himself to us in outrageous redemptive love.
  • God has come to earth.
WORST NEWS EVER...
  • God had to invade our world in the person of Jesus because there was no other way.
  • Romans 3:23
  • Jesus didn't come to earth to do a preaching tour or to hang out with us for a while; he came on a radical mission of moral rescue.
  • Luke 19:10
The Christmas Story...
  • It tells us we have been freed forever from denying or minimizing the danger that lives inside you because Jesus came to rescue, forgiven, transform and deliver you.
  • It is ONLY when you admit the need that you will be able to fully celebrate the solution that is JESUS.
The BEGINNING of Good News...
  • Baby Jesus grew up and said if you want to have life you have to believe and confess who I am.
  • Baby Jesus grew up and said if you want to be forgiven you have to turn from your sins and be baptized.
  • Baby Jesus grew up and ignited a revolution, a rebellion against the way things were and calls us to join him.
  • Baby Jesus grew up and he calls us to do the same.
  • Galatians 4:4
