SERMON NOTES

CHRISTMAS THROUGH HEAVEN’S EYES

“A Wisdom Story” – Galatians 4:4-7

    What does that phrase really mean, “But when the time had fully come, God sent His Son …”  It means:

  1. The MOMENT was RIGHT

  • The timing was not an accident – over 300+ prophecies were fulfilled by the birth of Jesus!
  • A mathematician tried to explain it this way:  1 person fulfilling 48 prophecies would be 1 chance in 10 to the 157th power!  One person fulfilling 300+ prophecies:  only Jesus!
  • It was the right time:

  • Politically
  • Culturally
  • Spiritually

  1. Salvation had ARRIVED

  • When we see Christmas through heaven’s eyes, we see both the crib of Christ, and the cross of Christ.

  1. God came NEAR

  • When Jesus came at Christmas, He became both our sacrificial lamb and High Priest.
  • We needed a Savior who could identify with the human condition and rescue us!

How do we respond to this “fullness of time” at Christmas?

  • Don’t let the mystery and glory, the wonder and awe of what Jesus did pass you by

  • Commit or recommit your life in a new and fresh way to Jesus Christ this Advent
