Sermon 24 December 2017  (4th Sunday of Advent/Christmas Eve)

Who brought the greatest gift? by Fr. Dana

  • David had a heart to give; God outgave him – 2 Samuel 7
  • God raised up David’s kingdom, then surpassed it through Jesus – Psalm 89
  • The Lord lay bare His holy arm: Jesus, the man of His right hand – Isaiah 52
  • Mary had a heart to obey; God gave her the highest honour – Luke 1

Simple Summary:  Do you measure a person’s love by the Christmas gift they give, or the card they send?  On that first Christmas day, who brought the greatest gift?  To receive the gift, you must first let go of what’s already in your hand.

Lectionary:  Isaiah 2 Samuel 7:1-11, 16; Psalm 89:1-4, 19-26; Isaiah 52:7-10; Luke 1:26-38
