Sermon Audio: “Small Christmas”

This is the audio from the sermon “Small Christmas” that I preached for Christmas at Friend Church this past Christmas (December 12, 2010).

HERE ARE THE NOTES:

1. Small people demonstrate God’s _________________

John 1:46 “Can anything good come from (Nazareth)?”

2. Small _________________ Demonstrates Big Devotion

1 Samuel 15:22 “Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice.”

3. _________________ Small Demonstrates Big Faith

Luke 21:3-4 “”I tell you the truth,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”


Concluding Questions:

+ Are you giving in the small?

+ Where is your devotion to God being demonstrated?

+ Is your smallness keeping you from experiencing Jesus or drawing you into Him?
