Jesus Changes Everything- Jesus Changes our Response to God

Luke 2:1-21

1. In Innkeeper – Distracted

 “And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.  Luke 2:7

2. Herod - Fear

“And he (Herod)….was saying, ‘Go and search diligently for the child, and…bring me word, that I too may come and worship him.’”  Matthew 2:8

“Then Herod….became furious, and he sent and killed all the male children in Bethlehem…two years old or under, according to the time that he had ascertained from the wise men.”  Matthew 2:16

3. Religious leaders - Pride

“(Herod)…assembling all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Christ was born.  They told him, ‘In Bethlehem of Judea, for so it is written by the prophet…’” Matthew 2:4

4. The Shepherds - Worship and Witness 

“They found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger….they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child…the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God…”  Luke 2:16-17, 20
