Fourth Sunday of Advent Sunday, December 23, 2018

Worship Focus: The Savior comes bearing gifts! He comes bearing the gift of God’s love. God sees us in our humble state: tainted with the “image of man,” battling sin, giving in to sin, with death rearing its ugly head and the devil opposing us and God along the way. Yet our God gives us his love so abundantly through the Christ-child that he shepherds us, blesses us, and gives us deliverance from our enemies sin, death, and the devil. The Savior certainly comes bearing the gift of love!
