The message on December 20, 2020 was on “Christmas 2020”. Wayne wanted to remind us of the special hope we have been given by God taking flesh. In this pandemic year we often hear of the sentiment of negativity and the excitement to put this year behind us. However if you consider the special hope we have been given in Christ and that we have our citizenship in the heavenlies. Though our bodies are formed of the dust of the Earth, through the resurrection our bodies will be transformed into a new one specifically composed for our place in the super heavens above all principalities and powers. All this has been made possible by Christ Jesus in his life, death and resurrection. He has paid the price for our sins and the hope we have been given is the best Christmas gift of all. Merry Christmas! The Scripture reading was from Luke 1:46-56 KJV
“46 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, 47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. 48 For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. 49 For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name. 50 And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation. 51 He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. 52 He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree. 53 He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. 54 He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy; 55 As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever. 56 And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her own house.
