"THE POWER OF GOD'S LOVE"

Rev. Lon Lorton

Second Sunday of Advent

December 10, 2017

Luke 2:1-12

The power of God's love came in challenging ways.

Why would God be born

  • in a lowly stable?
  • to a carpenter's family?

Do we (can we) understand the power of God?  Matthew 22:23-30

God's power in Christ Jesus - is our power through His Spirit.

The power of God's love reminds us that Christmas is about something more, something greater than ourselves (or even our loved ones).

What fresh things might we do - if we dared to do them in the name of Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit?
