As we come to celebrate Christmas, we reflect on the preparation God made for the coming of Christ into the world. In this sermon, I explore the Magnificat, the expression of praise by Mary when she met Elizabeth, who was to be the mother of John the Baptist.
As we enter the season of Advent, we reflect on the reason why Christ has come into the world: to deliver us from the consequences of our sin, to redeem us so we can live as obedient servants of God, and to undo the works of the devil. In this sermon I reflect on how all this became necessary, arising from the sin of Adam and Eve in Eden.
