Bits and Bytes

Posted by Rick on December 9, 2007

Here are some “sound bites” from this mornings sermon:

  • Don’t be so busy with the “things” of Christmas that you miss Jesus.
  • The temple was the center of religious life in Jerusalem, but the leaders missed the birth of the Messiah only 5 miles away.
  • The temple leaders were to busy serving God to meet God.
  • Simeon and Anna waited on God’s promises; they knew He would fulfill them.
  • Simeon and Anna were busy in the temple doing the things of God, but they didn’t miss Jesus when He was brought in the temple.
  • When someone wishes you a “Happy Holidays”, wish them a “Merry Christmas” back and don’t be ashamed to tell them that we are celebrating the birth of the Savior!

May God bless you this week and allow you to see and take advantage of the ample opportunities for witnessing for Him.
