December 20, 2020 – Fourth Sunday in Advent *The Nativity of Our Lord – Christmas Day Observed
Psalm 98; Isaiah 9:2-7; Luke 2:1-20
“The Usual Christmas?” - Sermon Text: Luke 2:11 - Rev. Shayne Jonker
If we look into the manger and gush over the image of a sweet and pure child, but see no cross, we miss the whole point. If we forget that this precious child came to shed His precious blood for sin, then why are we even celebrating him anyway? For this is the perfect and spotless Lamb of God, appointed for sacrifice, to take away the sins of the world. This doesn't happen every day, but it did happen on Christmas and Good Friday.
