Recently we completed our series of sermons studying through the book of Hebrews. Start to finish the focus is on Christ and His supremacy over all.
I’ve also been challenging our church family in the past couple of weeks to be certain that if you choose to celebrate Christmas that you are certain to celebrate the Christ of Christmas.
Along those lines I thought it fitting as we approach Christmas day to walk back through the book of Hebrews to show you just ten reasons among many for celebrating the birth of Christ, no matter what the season.
Here are three of the reasons. You’ll find the rest and the scriptures to go with them on my blog.
We should celebrate the birth of Christ…
- Because, through Christ God makes himself known to us. (Hebrews 1:2)
- Because, Jesus, the founder of our salvation suffered on our behalf fully paying and cancelling our sin debt and in so doing destroyed the power of sin and the devil, liberating believers from lifelong slavery to such. (Hebrews 2:10, Hebrews 2:14-15)
- Because, having finished the work of cancelling our sin debt we now through faith in Christ find rest in His rest. (Hebrews 4:3)
