God: Faithful, Gracious, Powerful (Luke 1:57-66)

Right now, the kingdom of darkness is trying to get you to doubt and distrust God. The devil wants you to believe you cannot count on God and that God is not trustworthy. The world wants you to think God does not care and is not interested in your life. Your own sinful nature wants you to believe that God cannot do what He says He can or will do.

The Rest of the Christmas Story (Luke 1:39-45)

Today, we are going to observe the Lord’s Supper. There are a lot of important themes, subjects, and lessons that come from the Lord’s Supper. Lessons that address sacrifice, forgiveness, self-examination, the Lord’s return, evangelism and outreach, thankfulness, community, the blood of Christ, the sinless life of Christ, and unity to name a few. This morning we are going to focus on the theme of suffering. We are going to think about and remember what Jesus suffered for you and me and what it means to suffer for Jesus as well.
