Sermon Text:
Luke 1:67-79

“Enjoyment spontaneously overflows into praise unless shyness or fear brings it into check.  The world rings with praise, players praising their favorite game, praise of weather, wines, dishes, actors, colleges, countries, children, flowers, rare stamps, even rare beetles.  The most humble, balanced, and capacious minds praise the most, while the cranks, misfits, and malcontents praise the least.”

– C.S. Lewis, Reflections of the Psalms

Reflection Points

  • What big idea stood out to you this morning? How will you respond?
  • What hope of yours has been crushed?
  • How have you responded? Anger, frustration, or depression?
  • Does the gospel and Jesus’ birth adjust and restore your hope and joy?
