Sermon: “Exhausted” - by Roy Ice
Pastoral Welcome: Randy Speyer
Scripture Reading: Luke 2:8-18, TNIV
Children's Feature: TBD
Christmas has become a very busy time of year for many of us. Shopping, and parties, and trips to see the family are only a few of the things that fill up our calendars. Christmas sure feels like a season when time speeds up. But what if it didn’t have to be that way?
For our advent sermon series this year, Pastors Randy Roberts and Roy Ice present a different view: Christmas: When Time Slows Down.
In this second installment of our series, we hang out with a group of tired shepherds. One of them, we can imagine, was quite exhausted. He was the one burdened with the duty of keeping watch over the sheep at night while the others slept. But it was in this moment of exhaustion that the announcement of Jesus’ birth came. The angels did not come at a proper hour when all the shepherds were rested and alert. For some reason, the announcement came when life had slowed down to the point of exhaustion. Is it possible that Jesus may come to you this Christmas season while you are the most exhausted?
May you be blessed by the message today.
Roy Ice, Pastor for Resource Development
