Summary

Sermon Summary: Today is the fourth Sunday of Advent. Advent means “coming”. During the Advent season, we celebrate the coming of Jesus into the world nearly 2000 years ago. Today, on this day before Christmas, we will look at Matthew 2:1-12, where the wise men from the east follow the star that led them to Jesus. When they saw Jesus, they bowed down and worshipped him. We can learn from the wise men. There are three truths about the genuine worship of Jesus…

  1. Genuine worship of Jesus is hindered by our self-centeredness.
  2. Genuine worship of Jesus is hindered by our pride.
  3. Genuine worship of Jesus takes place when we humbly and sacrificially follow Jesus.
