When God Rescues Us

December 5, 2021 Speaker: Jill Jones Series: Gloria In Excelsis Deo

Topic: The Deep Theology of Christmas Carols Passage: Matthew 1:67–79

Question: The combined value of these familiar holiday staples is about $8,000. What are they?
Answer: Santa's reindeer! A male reindeer will run you about $1000. 

Turns out a reindeer costs more than a mule deer.
Really?
Yeah you can get a mule deer for about a Buck! 

How much does it cost Santa to park his sleigh and reindeer?
I don't know, how much?
Nothing, it's on the house! 

Can you name all the reindeer? But do you recall the most famous reindeer of all? He's the misfit, the outsider, the outcast, and the one who rescues Christmas on one foggy Christmas Eve. 

Every good story needs a hero to save the day. Just like in our story. When we were at our most desperate, our Father in Heaven sent a rescuer in the form of baby. For the second Sunday of Advent, Pastor Jill talks about the great rescue plan of God in a message called "When God Rescues Us."
