The Gift Is You... Joy - 12/14/2014

Sermon Text:   Isaiah 9:2-4 & Luke 1:39-56

   Our theme throughout Advent … thanks to Linda Allen’s inspiration and spending a couple of hours with her back in November … our Advent theme this year is: The Gift Is You.
   You know, we spend a lot of time focusing on the gift we receive in the birth of the Babe … and indeed we have received much. But these words of Jesus, recorded by Luke in the 12th chapter of his gospel, are very clear: “To those whom much is given, much is expected.” (Luke 12:48) So the challenge in this season of Advent 2014 is: How can I be the Gift of Hope … the Gift of Peace … the Gift of Joy … how can I be the Gift of Love to this world around us? For you see … The Gift Is YOU.
