Christmas Message – Brandon Phillips

The responses in the account of Christ's birth which I would argue parallel our responses to the Gospel. There was:
  1. Great Shock at the Report
  2. Enormous Confusion at the Repercussions
  3. Fantastic Joy at the Recognition
  4. True Obedience at the Realization
  5. Great Sadness at the Rejection

Come Adore The Humble King (CCLI #7134769)

Closing Prayer – Brandon Phillips

Silent Night (#121)
