Sermon Bites 12/28/08

People, And The Incarnation Of Christ
Luke 2:25-38; Matthew 2:1-12, 16-18
PURPOSE  – In looking at the six people/personalities we see in this message the question should arise, “Which personality do I fit?”, and lead us to a close walk with our personal Lord, Savior, and God.

I. HEROD – AN EXAMPLE OF “ROYALTY” WHO HATED KING JESUS (v. Matthew 2:16-18).

II. THE WISE MEN [MAGI] – AN EXAMPLE OF THOSE WHO SEEK HIM FROM FAR AWAY (Matthew 2:1-12).

III. SHEPHERDS – AN EXAMPLE OF THE LOWLY WHO ARE CALLED TO WORSHIP HIM (Luke 2:8-9).

IV. PRIESTS AND SCRIBES – AN EXAMPLE OF THE RELIGIOUS, INDIFFERENT CROWD (Matthew 2:4).

V. ANNA – THOSE FAITHFUL IN PRAYER DESPITE THE TIMES AND TRIBULATIONS THEY EXPERIENCE (Luke 2:36-38).

VI. SIMEON – THOSE WHO ARE FAITHFUL IN EXPECTATION OF THE LORD’S COMING (Luke 2:25-35).
