- Christmas is about salvation, the greatest gift ever given; many don’t get or want it
- Simeon in the temple blessed God, Joseph and Mary
- Salvation came first to the Jews, then to the Gentiles
- Jesus was destined for the rise and fall of many...
- Jesus is offensive, stirs up; there is no way to not respond to Jesus; either you’ll bless or curse Him; people are agitated, irritated
- Jesus will raise you up or cause you to stumble; no one is neutral
- All glory belongs to Him; He has done it all; we have done nothing
- God chose a path for you, a well-designed path, orchestrated... divine appointments...
- Natural man cannot understand the things of God; the Holy Spirit must quicken
- He gives you eternal life... does not loan it... it is a gift
