Luke 1:26-38 - Don't Give up On Jesus

The following episode is a live recorded sermon from the Sunday gathering at The Heights Church Denver on 11/28/21 Do you ever feel like God is silent? As followers of Jesus, we often find ourselves in seasons where God feels distant or cold towards us. After 400 years of silence from God, the people of Israel find themselves in the same situation at the beginning of the Gospel of Luke. But God had not given up on them. He was about to enter into their questions in a way that they could. never expect. In today's teachings we look at the background of the Christmas event in Luke chapter 1 to see how God does not give up on his people, and how we can always re-engage with God no matter where we are in life.

From Series: "Advent: Good News of Great Joy"

The word Advent means “coming.” For centuries, followers of Jesus have set aside the twenty-five days leading up to Christmas to remember Jesus’ coming and all that he brings. So what does Jesus bring? The angel tells us…great joy. But notice what else the angel says. The great joy that Jesus brings does not come as good advice, but good news. If Jesus just came to bring good advice, that would be one thing. But good news is better than good advice. Tim Keller writes, “Advice is counsel about what you must do. News is a report about what has already been done. Advice urges you to make something happen. News urges you to recognize something that has already happened. Advice says it is all up to you to act. News says someone else has acted.” Jesus did not come and give you good advice that could produce great joy if you keep it. He came and secured great joy for you so that you can receive it.
