Sermon Notes

Part of the Christmas story that we often ignore is the birth of John the Baptist. Yet the Gospel of Mark begins, “The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God,” and then tells the story of John. The reason John is an important part of the Christmas story is because he fulfills the prophecy that God would send someone to prepare the way. But still nobody really expected it. Just like we don’t expect Jesus to show up in our life today. In this message, Pastor Chip explains why it’s so important.
