Sermon: “Worried”  - by Randy Roberts

Pastoral Welcome: Marvin Ponder 

Scripture Reading: Luke 2:13–14, TNIV 

Children's Feature: TBD

Sermon Notes:

  It seems that this is the time of year when things speed up! It seems that there isn’t enough time to be able to do everything that is demanded of us. In fact, we can come to the end of the Christmas season panting for breath and thinking, “What I need is a vacation to get over my vacation!” 

Well, maybe there is a Christmas song containing a concept that can help us. It’s a very familiar song. In fact, I suppose there aren’t many biblical songs more well-known than the one the angels sang to the shepherds in Luke 2: 

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”(Luke 2:13–14, TNIV) 

The song tells us that in the birth of the Christ-child, there’s something for God glory, and something for us peace. In his gospel, John tells us that Jesus will bring glory to God by completing the work that God gave him to do (see John 17:4). Our interest today, though, as we consider the song again, is with that second part: peace on earth. And we have questions about it: What does it mean to experience the peace of God? And who are those on whom his favor rests? And what does it have to do with time slowing down? I wonder . . . . Do you suppose that the peace of God tells us that at this time of year, time actually can slow down? After all, one of the characteristics of peace is the sense of things slowing down . . . . Let’s listen to the song again and find out.
