Sunday Morning SoundBytes – 11/29/2015

Last week we started a new message series called the The Spirit of Christmas where we are studying the role of the Holy Spirit at Christmas. The first message was called The Spirit of Christmas Past, taken from 1 Peter 1:10-12. Here is a brief outline of the message:

I. The Spirit’s role in Old Testament prophecy
   A. Prophets spoke from God by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:21)
   B. All Scripture is God-breathed (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20)

II. Key prophecies relating to Christ’s birth
   A. The seed of the woman (Genesis 3:14-15 → Gal. 4:4-5)
   B. Born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14 → Matthew 1:22-23)
   C. Born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2 → Matthew 2:4-5)

III. The reason the Spirit gave us these prophecies
   A. Main focus: grace (1 Peter 1:10)
   B. Main content: Christ (1 Peter 1:11)
   C. Main audience: YOU! (1 Peter 1:12)
      – that you might hear the gospel and believe
