Sermon: A Cleansed Conscience
Hebrews 9.1-15: God created us to be close with him, but our sin and guilt keeps us at a distance. On our own, we have no ability to cleanse our consciences. But God, in his great love for us, came close to us through Jesus. Through his shed blood, Jesus makes atonement in the heavenly sanctuary to open the way for us to be close with God. Praise God! Now, if we are in Christ, we live to serve him, in closeness and gratitude.

    Sermon: A Light to the Gentiles
    Matthew 2.1-12: We desire for light to guide us in the darkness. The magi looked to the heavens and were guided to the Light that had descended from heaven. The light that gave life to every man, even these magi, had come. God will draw all to his Son. All will bow at his feet. As a church, we are to bear the message of the light to the world and be guided ourselves by it in these dark times.

    Sermon: The Child That Confronts Us
    Luke 2.25-35: In Christ, we are confronted by a child that is the dividing line of history and our lives. He is not an ordinary child, yet comes into the world in ordinary ways. As the one sent from heaven, he is either the rock that brings us to stumble or the firm foundation upon which to build a secure life upon. This is the choice when we are confronted by this newborn child.

    Sermon: The Joy Set Before Us
    Hebrews 12.1-3: Christmas is a season of joy - joy anticipated and joy realized. It leads us to consider what it takes to pursue joy. Jesus offers a way through him, who "for the joy set before him, endured the cross and scorned its shame." Shame robs joy now and the prospect of joy for the future. At the cross, Jesus takes our shame and gives us opportunity to be free from its insidious destruction of our soul. He calls us out of the isolation that shame keeps us in to find freedom in him. He opens us up to a greater freedom of the soul that pursues the joy set before us.

    Sermon: What He Offered
    Hebrews 8: Are we disturbed enough by our lack of interest in God, relying on the things of this earth to give us peace only he can fulfill? May God disturb us to a holy discontent that draws us to him and his gift of Jesus Christ, our true High Priest. What he offered was his life to save us, that we might not be destroyed by our sin. Praise God!

    Sermon: A New Covenant
    Hebrews 7.20-28: Jesus Christ is a priest forever, meaning his sacrifice is a completion of the Jewish daily sacrifices. This truth frames our life, meaning that our daily life is infused with the eternal focus and purpose. With confidence because of Christ's work, we move forward to cleansing, truth, reconciliation, and forgiveness. We walk by faith and not by sight, knowing that Christ is interceding daily on our behalf.

    Sermon: A Forever High Priest
    Hebrews 7.1-19: While God gave Israel the priest-led sacrificial system for a purpose, it itself could not fulfill what was completely needed. It was given to establish a pattern that anticipated a coming perfect sacrifice for atonement. This is Christ and it is in him that we now can fully draw near to God, as God has drawn near to us.
