We had a fantastic day at Crestview Bible Church on Sunday, December 18, 2022. So many people came together to contribute to this morning of worship through music. Mandy previewed this on our Flipside Podcast episode On the 2022 Children’s Christmas Program. And we had instrumental numbers, memorable songs, the use of many different instruments, congregational singing, and a program presented with excellence and selflessness.
My short sermon sought to continue our series on O Come, O Come Emmanuel using a verse as a springboard.
O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, freehttps://hymnary.org/text/o_come_o_come_emmanuel_and_ransom
Thine own from Satan’s tyranny;
From depths of hell Thy people save,
And give them victory over the grave.
I did a quick teaching piece on Acts 10:34-43 (the first time the Gospel is proclaimed to the Gentiles) to connect Emmanuel and the Good News. This passage showed that what Peter declared was the same message angels gave to shepherds appearing in the fields. If you have the time, I’d go back and watch the entire program. I hope the morning encouraged you.
