Sermon: ADVENT: GETTING READY, BEING CHANGED
Scripture Reading: Luke 3:1-6

INTRODUCTION

 I. IN THIS SEASON OF ADVENT GOD GIVES US A PRIVILEGE AND A TASK

II. GOD CHOOSES THE TIMES AND PLACES FOR HIS WORK

Luke 1In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar—when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, Herod tetrarch of Galilee, his brother Philip tetrarch of Iturea and Traconitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene— during the high-priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John son of Zechariah in the wilderness.

III. GOD CALLS US AND EXPECTS OUR RESPONSE

He went into all the country around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet:

“A voice of one calling in the wilderness,

IV. GOD BRINGS TRANSFORMATION INTO OUR LIVES 

  1. ‘Prepare the way for the Lord,
    make straight paths for him.
    Every valley shall be filled in,
    every mountain and hill made low.
    The crooked roads shall become straight,
        the rough ways smooth.
    And all people will see God’s salvation.’”

 

CONCLUSION

 

 

信息:在降臨節,做好準備接受神的救恩

讀經:路加福音3:1-6:

介紹

I. 在降臨節,上帝賦予我們特權,也帶下來任務
II.上帝選擇祂工作的時間和地點

路加福音第3章:愷撒提庇留在位第十五年,本丟彼拉多猶太巡撫,希律加利利分封的王,他的兄弟腓力以土利亞特拉可尼地方分封的王,呂撒聶亞比利尼分封的王, 亞那該亞法做大祭司。那時,撒迦利亞的兒子約翰曠野裡,神的話臨到他

 

III. 上帝呼召我們、等我們回應祂的聲音

他就來到約旦河一帶地方,宣講悔改的洗禮,使罪得赦。 正如先知以賽亞書上所記的話說:

「在曠野有人聲喊著說:」
IV.上帝將祂的救恩彰顯在世人面前

『預備主的道,

修直他的路!

一切山窪都要填滿,

大小山岡都要削平,

彎彎曲曲的地方要改為正直,

高高低低的道路要改為平坦。

凡有血氣的,都要見神的救恩。』」
