Week 4 – Christmas Together
DIGITAL BULLETIN 18 December 2022
In this message, Pastor Brad continues the @EagleLifeChurch Advent series “Christmas Together” from the Biblical accounts of the first Christmas. In this series, you will learn how to get and stay connected in a world that is tearing people apart.
In this sermon, you learn how people can get wrapped up in all the wrong things and miss the greatest gift of Christmas – God’s Love. People love themselves. People love their traditions. But the greatest gift of Christmas is the LOVE OF GOD wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.
Join us as we celebrate Christmas together.

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.Galatians 4:4-5 (ESV, emphasis added)

Wrapped Up in Love
SCRIPTURE: Galatians 4:4-5; Matthew 2:1-12; Luke 14:15-24 (ESV)
Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem, 2 saying, “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” 3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him; 4 and assembling all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. 5 They told him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for so it is written by the prophet:
6 “ ‘And you, O Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
for from you shall come a ruler
who will shepherd my people Israel.’ ”Matthew 2:1-6 (ESV)

Then Herod summoned the wise men secretly and ascertained from them what time the star had appeared. 8 And he sent them to Bethlehem, saying, “Go and search diligently for the child, and when you have found him, bring me word, that I too may come and worship him.” 9 After listening to the king, they went on their way. And behold, the star that they had seen when it rose went before them until it came to rest over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. 11 And going into the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh. 12 And being warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they departed to their own country by another way.Matthew 2:7-12 (ESV)
