Sermon: Museum of the Messiah - The Swaddling Cloths

Yesterday I began a series on the birth of Jesus imagining a museum exhibit of the life of Jesus. The first artifact on display is the swaddling cloths mentioned in Luke 2:1-12. The swaddling cloths are a vivid reminder of Jesus' humanity. And according to Matthew 1:18-22, Jesus became human to be Immanuel, "God with us." Why is God with us?

  1. To redeem us to become His sons (Galatians 4:4-7).
  2. To destroy the power of death through death (Hebrews 2:14-18). 
  3. To sympathize with us as we suffer (Hebrews 4:14-16).
