The God Who Came At Christmas: God’s Strength in our Weakness
Below is our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service.
There is an adage that goes like this, “never let them see you sweat.” This unfortunate mentality is the reason why so many are not able to experience God’s strength. Unfortunately, too many have bought into the cultural lie of humanism, which places total confidence in self. However, even the disciples of Jesus had to learn to admit their weakness before they could exorcise the demon out of the boy (Matt. 17:14-20). Jesus taught them the valuable lesson that their only source of power is God. Therefore, the only access to His source of strength is when they let go of their ability.
The Hebrew believers found unrest in their doctrines of the sufficiency and preeminence of Christ because they were trusting in the teachings of others, rather than in Scripture. The writer expresses over and over the superiority of Christ and extends, to us, the testimony of where believers will find real strength – the God who came at Christmas
