Sermon Outline

THE PLAN FULFILLED
Luke 2:1-15

Introduction: Our Advent series reveals the Problem, the Promise, the Plan and now the Pronouncement of the arrival of a “Savior, Christ the Lord”. The one sentence hymn of Luke 2:14 reveals what God is doing and why.

  • I.FOR THE GLORY OF GOD
  • A.God Creates Us For His Glory
  • 1.To bring glory is to “display, mirror, reflect”
  • 2.Is God an egomaniac?

“God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him”. John Piper

  • B.We Exchange God’s Glory for Substitutes (Romans 1:25)
  • 1.God made us to rely on Him and reflect His glory
  • 2.We rely on ourselves and seek our own glory
  • C.Salvation is to Redeem Us and Realign Us With the Lord’s Purpose
  • II.FOR THE PEACE OF THE HUMAN RACE
  • A.Peace (Shalom) With God
  • 1.Peace with God
  • 2.Peace with ourselves
  • B.Peace In Relationships
  • 1.There is no peace with other until there is peace within
  • 2.There is no peace within until we have peace with God

Conclusion: Glory and peace go together and they are only found in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
