Text: Luke 2:1-8
Theme: Treasuring the gift of Christ in the context of shepherds
- Consider the four groups of passages that correspond to the four main sermon points:
- Pt 1: Isaiah 61:1-3; 1 Corinthians 1:18-31
- Pt 2: the extended ‘bread’ passage of John 6:1-58
- Pt 3: the Shepherd Psalm — Psalm 23
- Pt 4: Isaiah 53:3-11; John 10:11
- Consider how each passage points to Christ AND calls us to conform our lives to him.
For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.
