Children’s Sunday Sermon
December 6, 2015
Good morning boys and girls. I know I don’t have to tell you that it’s not too early to start thinking about Christmas!

I’m sure all of you have gone over your Christmas wish-list of presents many times and have imagined what surprises Christmas Day may bring. Besides the presents, there are visits from friends and relatives, and maybe a nice Christmas dinner. But I don’t think I need to remind you of all that! No, instead, what I think we all need to remind ourselves of is what this very special day of celebration really means to us. Everyday – between now and Christmas day – I want each one of you to think about all of the things that the “King of Kings” has asked of us. The Bible tells us that as we prepare for Christmas we must repent, which means to ask for forgiveness for the things we have done wrong and to promise to do better in the future. And the way we do this is not by talking about what is being asked of us, but by living it. We need to be living signs of God’s deep love for each one of us, especially now as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ!

So now let’s think about Christmas again boys and girls. Instead of the wish-list of presents, let’s think of a list of things we can do for others. Let’s think about friends or relatives who may be sick or lonely and let’s try to visit, or call or write to them. Let’s remember all of the people who don’t have enough to eat. Instead of thinking about what you might get this Christmas, start thinking about what you can give. And if you do that starting today, I can promise you the most joyful Christmas ever!

Good morning boys and girls! Only twelvet days until Christmas! And now, more than ever, we should be thinking about Jesus and the wonderful example He set for us.

Let’s think about Jesus now! Let’s come up with some words to describe Jesus. Can you think of some words boys and girls? Kind – very good! Caring, yes! Peaceful – that’s another good one. Compassionate, yes indeed! How about a few more, like patient . . . generous . . . and loving. Now let’s put them all together. Jesus was a kind, caring, compassionate, peaceful, patient, generous and loving man. In other words Jesus put others before Himself. In fact Jesus is know as the “Man For Others.”

We have described, boys and girls, what sounds like a very mild and gentle person. Isn’t it amazing boys and girls that the most powerful Person to ever walk the earth was also the most gentle and kind and loving? What do we mean by powerful when we talk about Jesus? Well, He could perform miracles. He walked on water. He could heal the sick. He raised a man from death. Now that’s what I call powerful! And, to this day, Jesus is the most powerful light that shines in the lives of each member of our Christian community. And the power of Jesus is always there for us – even when we are having a terrible, not so good day!

We read in the Bible that John the Baptist said, “Someone is coming, someone who is more powerful than I am, who will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.” That Someone is Jesus! Christmas is coming, boys and girls. So let’s get ready to celebrate the birth of the most powerful, and yet the most loving Person who ever lived! Jesus Christ – so powerful, yet so gentle!

Good morning boys and girls! I know all of you are very excited today and so am I. It’s almost Christmas, and you’re all thinking about the wonderful things that Christmas Day may bring. And I know that is important to you. But even more important is that you get well prepared for this week’s celebration of the birth of Christ.

How do we get ready boys and girls? Well I know that just about all of the Christmas gifts have been purchased and all the decorating and grocery shopping is over. Maybe there are still a few presents to wrap, but the preparation for the material celebration is over. What I’m talking about is preparing for the spiritual celebration. I’m talking about preparing ourselves to celebrate the birth of the King of Kings who came to earth to show us how much God really loves us. I’m talking about celebrating the birth of Jesus who taught us by his wonderful examples how we can do the good work of God here on earth.

The Bible tells us that when Mary knew that she was to be the mother of Jesus, she shared this Good News with her cousin Elizabeth. And when Elizabeth realized what was about to happen to Mary, she said, “blessed is she who believed the promise made to her by the Lord would be true.” That promise was God’s promise to you and to me that Jesus was coming into the world to give us the greatest Christmas gift of all. And that is the Love of God!

We learn in the Bible that Jesus is the “true light that enlightens all men.” And soon we will celebrate the day the true light first came to light up our lives. Christmas morning boys and girls it might be hard to think of the spiritual meaning of Christmas as you open your gifts. But all you have to do is look up at the shining star on top of the tree and remember the one who came here to shine His light on each one of us. Remember the reason we celebrate Christmas day, and then say thank you to God for making Jesus Christ, the Light of our life!

Good morning boys and girls! I want to wish each and every one of you a very merry and a very blessed Christmas.

I know many of you found a lot of nice things under the Christmas tree this morning and I know that you are thankful for all of the gifts you have received, and for your wonderful family and friends.

You may have noticed that each year at this time there are stories on the evening news about people who volunteer their time to help others. They serve meals and visit homeless shelters and nursing homes, and other places where people are in need. It’s very nice boys and girls to see people trying to help others, especially on Christmas day, isn’t it?

But do you know what? It’s not enough to be a good Christian just on Christmas Day. No, boys and girls, Jesus has taught us that we need to be kind and compassionate to our brothers and sisters every day of the year. This year I hope you will think about that. Being a good Christian is a 24-hour a-day, 7 day-a-week, 52 week-per-year job!

The Bible tells us that on that first Christmas day “the word was made flesh.” Do you know what that means? It means that when Jesus came into the world that first Christmas day, God became one of us to tell us how much He loves us And His Love is what Christmas is all about.

Good morning boys and girls. It’s almost the New Year, and I want to be the first to wish each of you a very Happy 2016!

It’s hard to believe that another year has gone by. I’m sure many of you remember this time last year and in a way, it doesn’t seem like that long ago. And I can tell you a secret boys and girls. The older you get, the faster the days, and the weeks, and the months, and the years seem to go by. So let’s all make sure we make the best of this coming New Year before it goes by too!

This time last year boys and girls, we all thought about what changes we would make during 2015. Maybe you made a resolution to work harder at school, or to keep your room clean! Well maybe not those. But I know that all of us resolved that we would practice our Christian faith, last New Year’s Day, and every day.

As you look back on the year 2015, can you really say that you practiced your Christian faith every day of the year? In a few days it will be the year 2016 . . .

2016 is the year . . .
to do more for our friends and neighbors;
to do more for those who are less fortunate
than we are;
to do more for people who are sick, or who
are lonely;
to do more listening to others with our heart;
to do more work on our Christian Faith ;
to do more practicing, the Lessons we
have learned.
