December Series: “Someone’s Coming”

2010 | by Trent Hunter | Category: Sermons

Jesus didn’t show up out of nowhere. Luke 24 records the story of Jesus’ interaction with two of his disciples on the road to Emmaus where “beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself” (24:27). And when he did this, the text says, their hearts “burn[ed]” within them (24:32). And so we have much to look forward to in December.

December Sermon Series

Starting this Sunday, Ryan will show us the greatness and the glory of the promised One, Jesus Christ, in a four part series that will culminate on the Sunday following Christmas. Here are the titles and times, so you know what’s ahead:

Sunday, December 12 (9:00 & 10:45 AM): “Someone’s Coming”
Sunday, December 19 (9:00 & 10:45 AM): “Jesus: God Dwells”
Friday, December 24 (4:00 & 6:00 PM): “Jesus: God Redeems”
Sunday, December 26 (9:00 & 10:45 AM): “Jesus: God Reigns”

While we’re on the subject of December and Christmas and Christ, two more things:

Christmas Resources at the Resource Center

In addition to this sermon series, DSC has a number of resources available at the Resource Center to help you see Christ clearly and spread Christ broadly during this month. Cause for Praise CDs are available for pick-up (if you pre-ordered) or purchase for $10. All DSC sermon CDs are 50% off, including past Clarus conferences and special speakers. The Resource Center has also been stocked with a number of books about Christ for adults and children for purchase as gifts. To listen to past Christmas season sermons, visit the Christmas section of the Messages portion of this site.

Remember to Invite Friends to one of DSC’s December Services

For those who don’t know Christ, Scripture says that they are “[without] hope and without God in the world” (Ephesians 2:12). As those who have been brought near to God by the blood of Christ, we are privileged messengers of the news that Christ has come, and that through Christ God dwells, God redeems, and God reigns. Remember the appropriateness of the season for inviting friends, family and neighbors to church, and let’s be especially hospitable on Sunday mornings knowing that we are joined by visitors who may be hearing the gospel or hearing the gospel savingly for the very first time. And let’s pray faithfully that many would come to know Christ, not only as the baby that he surely was, but as the risen and reigning King that he is.
