This week, Pastor Vlad shares a powerful message for Christmas. In it, he reminds us that God doesn’t hate the sinner for being out of touch with Him, He hates the sin for taking you out of touch with Him.

Sermon Notes

“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” Matthew 1:23

1. WE ARE LONGING FOR PRESENCE

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. Genesis 1:11

Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.” Genesis 1:20

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” Genesis 1:26

Sin is the second most powerful force in the universe, for it sent Jesus to the cross. Only one force is greater—the love of God.

2. WE ARE LOOKING FOR POWER

Gods present is His presence!

The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. And his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord made all he did to prosper in his hand. Genesis 39:2-3

Gideon said to Him, “O my lord, if the Lord is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His miracles which our fathers told us about, saying, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt?’ But now the Lord has forsaken us and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.” Judges 6:13

This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.” John 3:2

When his presence is with you, God adds His super to your natural.

When you are with God – you experience His peace
When God is with you – you experience His power

When you are with God – you get RELATIONSHIP
When God is with you – you get RESULTS

When your with God, you IMPRESS people
When God is with you, you IMPACT them
