PASTOR VERN’S SERMON NOTES
________________________________________________________________

December of 2017

This advent season at Anderson Island Christian Fellowship our worship revolves around receiving the Christ Child. 

Saint John described Jesus’ birth, “There was the true light which coming into the world enlightens every man.” (1:9)  As we light the advent candles week by week, we read about and reflect on how that light came to different people at the birth of Jesus. 

In the sermon series for advent, we will study how some strange men received that light and came to worship Jesus. These are the Magi or Wise men or, as we sing, the three Kings. There are things that happen at the time of Jesus’ birth that have no precedent and are a complete surprise, like the virgin birth. These Magi are that kind of anomaly.  They come from outside the story of the Bible seemingly informed and ready as no others to worship the Baby Jesus. Yet they are like us. We come from a world 2000 years removed from the events of His birth, out of a history and culture that seems to share little with that of the time of Jesus. Over the next few weeks, through the study of their experience, we will also draw near to worship the Christ Child.
