The Christ of Christmas pt1
4 December 2022 AM – Deuteronomy 6:4 – Christmas22 – Scott Childs
Introduction: For many people, Christmas is just a holiday. It is a time of lights, parties and giving of gifts. For religious people, Christmas is about the birth of Christ. However, many religious people know very little about the Christ of Christmas.
Today we are going to begin a four-week series to answer the question, “Who is the Christ of Christmas?” Matthew 1:23 states, “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” When Jesus became a man, He was God in human flesh. How can that be?
Transition: This morning I want us to examine some of the characteristics of God that unlock who Jesus is. Our text is Deuteronomy 6:4.
There can only be ONE God.
