December 11, 2011 “He Gave So We Could Gain”

Open your Bibles to Philippians 2:1-11. Now here we have one of the great Christmas texts in the entire Bible.  If you want to summarize it in a single sentence, it is that Christ gave up His place in heaven so we could gain a place in heaven.  That is the glorious message of the Incarnation and of Christmas.   Look again at this powerful explanation of the Gospel and what God did for us in Christ.
