Responding To Shepherds

The Christmas story often captures our imagination because it is when the majestic and mundane collide. This weekend, we continue our sermon series, The Journey, as we journey with shepherds. Ordinary, average, and at best mundane, in Luke 2, we find shepherds not in a palace but “living out” in a pasture. Then, out of nowhere, the majestic and the mundane collide. First, an angel appears, then a host of angels, and then the shepherd encounters Jesus Himself. On three occasions, the shepherds collide with majesty. And, yet, they don’t keep what they have experienced to themselves. They tell others.

Scripture References: Luke 2:1-10

Are you ready for Christmas? If not, let GCC help you get ready! Let us help you get your heart ready to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. This is the first truth we’ll study in the Advent/Christmas 2023 sermon series called “The Journey.” “The Journey” is a series of six sermons that essentially unpacks the nativity of Jesus Christ. We will study the Biblical characters who are associated with Jesus in his conception, birth, and early childhood. What can we learn from these men, women, and angels that will help us know and follow Jesus with a deeper faith and commitment?
