Sunday morning we observed the Lord’s Supper. The Advent Season brings heightened meaning to our Lord’s Supper celebration. I hope these sermon notes will help remind you this week about the significance of the Incarnation of the Word of God in the person of Jesus Christ.
Jesus is God’s great gift to mankind. By reflecting properly on what he has done for us, we come to a place of greater appreciation for what Christmas means to each one of us.

GOD IS WITH US
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1 :14
GOD IS FOR US
And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” Luke 22:19
GOD GIVES US ETERNAL LIFE
“I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” John 6:51
GOD TAKES AWAY OUR PUNISHMENT
Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” Matthew 26:27-28
GOD MAKES US HOLY
And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood. Hebrews 13:12
GOD MAKES US FAMILY
Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. John 1:12-13
The Costliest Gift Isn’t Under The Tree…It’s On The Table.
