In Jesus, God has invaded humanity and things can never be the same again. God who had formerly spoken through the prophets has spoken to the world a final word in His Son. How different is that Word from any uttered before or since. This Christmas sermon lays out the ways that Jesus revealed God in a different and ultimate way.

"When the fullness of time had come God sent his own son." Christmas is about God's timing in our lives. As this Christmas sermon reminds us, God is able to use the events of history, all the circumstances of our lives to create new things. It means we must respond to God's timing in the midst of life.
Using a computer mouse to illustrate the point, this children's sermon reminds kids that we can't do anything when we aren't "plugged in" to the Lord. But through prayer, Bible study, obedience, and sharing we can be powerful tools for God.
This isn't kid's stuff, pablum to be spoon fed by pet preachers to house-broken congregations who have lost their teeth. This is a dark, threatening word.
