Many of us have our favorite Christmas carols that center on angels singing songs, shepherds watching flocks, and wise men giving gifts. However, Luke records the very first Christmas songs, sung by Mary, Zechariah and Simeon. Unlike our modern carols, these don’t revolve around the nativity scenes or the events of Christ birth; rather they focus on the Savior himself. In Christ’s birth, God supernaturally breaks into the ordinary naturalness of human history, by revealing himself as the Savior of the world. In these three songs for a Savior, Mary, Zechariah, and Simeon praise the Lord for remembering His people ...

The Magnificat records Mary's response to all that God revealed to her about the child she would bear - a response that drew from all that she had learned about God and how he dealt with his people. Mary's song continues to teach us about the kingdom of God and the Savior she celebrated with reverence, humility, and eagerness to see the promises of God fulfilled.

In the course of doing the ordinary things that the law required of new parents, Mary and Joseph met Simeon, a man who understood his life in the context of God's unfolding purposes. Join us as we see Jesus through Simeon's eyes as the fulfillment of all that God had promised.

What made John the Baptist such a successful preacher? As we study the third chapter of Luke we learn that the right ingredients for good preaching don't meet modern expectations, and that the challlenge of John's message is just as vital for us as it was for his first hearers.

Are you a true disciple of Christ? On what do you base this? In this sermon we learn that ignorance is one of the greatest barriers to following Jesus, and we strip away the faulty reasons behind why many of us think that we're believers.

Following Jesus is more than a sincere attempt to "be a Christian"... it's actually doing what Jesus says! Understanding what it means to say "Jesus is Lord" is the first step towards true obedience.

What does it mean to be a follower of Christ? Do we have a clear idea or do we sometimes just “go along with the crowd?” In Luke 8 Jesus utilizes an earthly story that has a heavenly meaning by telling a parable about seeds and soil. Hearing God’s Word and taking it to heart are two different things, and perseverance in faith is paramount to hearing, retaining and being responsive to God’s Word in our Christian walk.

In Luke 9 Jesus asks Peter "Who do you say I am?" This question is still relevant today. Who do you say Jesus is? What does it mean to deny yourself and take up your cross? Many times we want something without giving up anything. Jesus, by His death on the cross paid for us to be reconciled with God. So what are the expectations for us to answer Jesus' call to "follow me?"
