How is Jesus’ birth a solution to the situation we each find ourselves in?

You’ve probably heard people say, “Context is everything.”  This is so true about the birth of Jesus Christ.  The reasons why He was born, His life, and His ministry is just as important as the fact that He was born at all.  In fact, it is what He did later in life that gives context to the whole story of the Nativity.  Otherwise Jesus would just be another baby born and if nothing else His birth would have been relatively insignificant, certainly nothing to keep telling one generation after another for 2,000 years.  If you think about it, He was a poor child, born into a poor family to a couple of teen-aged parents, who came from a backwoods community.  The fact is that the story doesn’t end there and what we know about Jesus from that day forward makes all of the difference in the world and is the very reason that we retell the story every year and celebrate the birth of Jesus at Christmas.

In this Sermon

We are going to take a look at the context of the nativity.  What did Jesus’ arrival change?  What was it that Jesus came to do?  How does His birth proclaim the answer to our eternal needs and how was Jesus the solution to our situation?  In this sermon we are going to take a look into the problem that Jesus came to solve.
