Christmas at Chesapeake

Jesus' birth wasn't announced to those we would have expected. The host of angels didn't come to the head priests or the leaders of the Jews; they appeared to lowly shepherds. God announced His Son's birth to the most unlikely people, showing His love for all of humanity, His desire for all to know Him. The star of Bethlehem reminds us that the Gospel isn't just for the religious, for the neat and tidy. The Good News of Jesus' birth, His death, and His resurrection is for all people.

Scripture References: Matthew 2:1-12

From Series: "Christmas Sermon"

As we near Christmas, we occupy now a season of prayer and repentance in hopeful anticipation of the return of Jesus. Just as the Old Testament saints waited in darkness for the coming of the Messiah and God’s promised redemption (Isaiah 9:2; Matthew 4:16), we now await His second coming, His glorious entry into the world again, His adventus, or advent. Thus, in this season while we remember the first coming of Jesus, we celebrate and look forward to His second coming.
