The Message: “Everything Changed”
To understand Christmas, you have to understand waiting. And as we all know, waiting is not easy and it comes with strong expectations. We have so much hope and so much desire for what we want Christmas to be and then sometimes Christmas doesn’t live up to our expectations and we experience disappointment. And disappointment is a common emotion that we share with the people who were waiting with hope and anticipation at that first Christmas. On that first Christmas, no one was expecting a baby in a manger. That was not on their Christmas list. But one of the powerful lessons from the Christmas story is that sometimes what we want is not always what we need. Join us Christmas Eve to explore why the baby in the manger is just what we need.
The Christmas Eve message will conclude our Advent sermon series, “Sent: Delivering the Gift of Hope at Christmas,” based on the book of the same name. Learn more about the sermon series and catch up on past messages at asburylv.org/Sent.
