Christmas Eve Snapshot… IMMANUEL (GOD WITH US)

 

Matthew 1:18-23… This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly. But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name JESUS, because He will save His people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him IMMANUEL (which means “GOD WITH US”).

 

The INCARNATION is when GOD BECAME FLESH… in the PERSON of HIS SONJESUS CHRIST!

 

IMMANUEL (GOD WITH US) means…

-HE WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU!

-HE WILL NEVER FORSAKE YOU!
-HE IS ALWAYS WITH YOU!
-HIS SPIRIT WILL ALWAYS LIVE INSIDE OF YOU!

 

JUST… KEEP… LOVING…

SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (SPLIT - 5)

main image

The Bible is so good about using EXAMPLES! (I mean…) The Scriptures never seem to gloss over any of its character’s errors… and it never pretends that the heroes are perfect! Their failures are very openly and honestly documented… and the tremendous treasure in that - is to see how God always finds a way of taking imperfect people - who are totally committed to Him - and uses them in a great way! (And…) DAVID seems to be one of the Perfect Examples of ALL that I’m talking about! There were many moments is David’s Life when he was dead ON… however there were also moments in David’s life when he was way OFF! (Sound like anyone familiar?!) In some ways… it was like David suffered from some sort of “SPLIT” Christian Personality Disorder! (So…) Since David is probably like so many of us… we thought we would take a few weeks to TALK about a few of his On moments and some of his OFF moments - and see if we can’t learn a few things to apply to our lives! Please consider joining us the Last Weekas we wrap-up our Current Series here at COC called “SPLIT!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (5) COVER-UPS COVER NOTHING

 

The Law of Sowing and Reaping...

1) You must Sow if you want to Reap!

2) You will always Reap what you Sow!

3) You will always Reap MORE than you Sow!

 

You will never be allowed to enjoy the “FRUIT” of your SIN!

 

Relationships don’t thrive because the Guiltyare Punished… but because the Innocent are Merciful!

 

Our God works in the REALM of EXCEPTIONAL and UNBELIEVABLE! You don’t always have to feel like a VICTIM to your CIRCUMSTANCE if you’re willing to CONFESSand REPENT!

 

GOD IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN “MAKE A RIGHT” OUT OF “YOUR WRONG!” (Will You Let Him?)

 

 

See You Sunday Celebrators… (9a / 10:45a)
