December 21st, 2013 – Sermon on “Embracing the message in the Story” by Nathan Lawson

Nathan Lawson’s sermon on “Embracing the message in the Story”  was a contrast between the Christmas holiday spirit in our country and the actual message in the Story of Christ’s Birth.  Some quotes are ” Until I take my sins to the foot of the cross, I have missed the message” and ” the holiday can do nothing for you, the message can do everything for you”.


Nathan used the following scriptures: John 3:16, 1 Tim 1:15, Phil 2:9-11, Matt 1:23, 2 Tim 3:15-17, Matt 1:21, Rom 6:23, Luke 1:77-79, Luke 2:10-14, 28-33

    Thanks for focusing on the essentials. Without the the essence of the message of Christ’s birth and sacrifice, we have nothing. Even though Christ’s birth was not near December 25th, it would be so much better to have the focus on churches worshipping and spiritual renewal than the commercial circus it has become. Truly we live in country whose spiritual eyes have been blinded.

    It was good to hear you Sabbath! Thanks for reminding us of the true message in the birth of Christ. Had He not been born and had He not died, our sins would not be forgiven. All hope would be gone! What a sacrifice! We must remember how much he loved us and the horror he willingly went through so that we could have eternal life. It is true that the Christmas celebration seems to be all about what makes people happy rather than what would please Jesus. He wants our hearts!Christmas is always a difficult time for children to get through. So much emphasis is placed on Santa Claus and presents. I think it is best to be honest about all of it when they are very little. We appreciate you, Nathan. . . .
