December 4, 2022's the Christmas Season.
The time of lights, decorations and Christmas music.  Lot's of Christmas music!
Join us at Highland Park Christian Church as we look at some Christmas Carols and their lyrical meanings that point directly to Jesus as the Savior of the world!

Galatians 4:4-5 - (NASB)
4 But when the fullness of the time came, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law,

5 so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons and daughters.

We pray that you will invite Jesus into your life and make Him Lord of your life.  If you need to pray about this with someone please call Pastor Harvey at 323-316-7131 and he will be glad to pray with you.

After singing a few songs, then as a congregation we read together aloud the following scripture...

Galatians 4:1-7 (NASB)
Adoption into God's Family

1 Now I say, as long as the heir is a child, he does not differ at all from a slave, although he is owner of everything,

2 but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by the father.

3 So we too, when we were children, were held in bondage under the elementary principles of the world.

4 But when the fullness of the time came, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law,

5 so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons and daughters.

6 Because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying out, “Abba! Father!”

7 Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.

Christmas Playlist - Week 2-Away in a Manger
Pastor Harvey

Here is the text from the sermon -   
Luke 2:7; 12; 17; Philippians 2:6-8; Luke 24:1-9Psalm 139:23-24

Luke 2:7 KJV
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

Luke 2:12 KJV
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

Philippians 2:6-8 NASB 
6 who, as He already existed in the form of God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
7 but emptied Himself by taking the form of a bond-servant andbeing born in the likeness of men.
8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death: death on a cross.

Philippians 2:6-8 KJV
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Luke 2:7-KJV
17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

Luke 2:7-NASB
17 When they had seen Him, they made known the statement which had been told them about this Child.

Read Luke 24:1-9 NASB
The Resurrection
1 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared.
2 And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb,
3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
4 While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men suddenly stood near them in gleaming clothing;
5 and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why are you seeking the living One among the dead?
6 He is not here, but He has risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee,
7 saying that the Son of Man must be handed over to sinful men, and be crucified, and on the third day rise from the dead.”
8 And they remembered His words,
9 and returned from the tomb and reported all these things to the eleven, and to all the rest.

Psalm 139:23-24 NASB
23 Search me, God, and know my heart;
Put me to the test and know my anxious thoughts;

24 And see if there is any hurtful way in me,
And lead me in the everlasting way.

Psalm 139:23-24 KJV
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart:
try me, and know my thoughts:

24 And see if there be any wicked way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
