The final sermon in the "Silent Night to Glorious Day" series will direct us to what role the Magi played in the story of Jesus and how they bore witness of God faithfulness and forgiveness to all people. But this witness pales in comparison to the witnesses that come at the end. The real question is: Are we looking and witnessing the next arrival of Jesus Christ?

Here is the first sermon in the series "Silent Night to Glorious Day". Lead pastor Aaron Benner's sermon, "Wonder To Worship" begins the Christmas series.
We celebrate Christmas to look back and remember the birth of Christ the Lord. The humility that he showed us in coming as a baby, and the pride that God took in HIS son being born move us to wonder. (Luke 2:18) God sent angels to declare his birth to an unexpected group, the shepherds. The humility and majesty of this picture is amazing, but there is an even more majestic picture painted of Christ in Revelation 5. Christ did not remain a baby, but grew as a perfect man to be wrongfully killed, then resurrected. In heaven we see scriptures unfold a picture of a mighty King. A Lion turned Lamb for us. We hear thousands upon thousands of angels singing a new song and the 4 creatures falling to the ground. The scene closes with everything in heaven falling and worshiping God and Christ. So will you this Christmas fall to your knees and worship Christ? That’s our prayer through this sermon. May God’s word encourage you greatly!
