Christmas sermons are both the easiest and the most difficult sermons to preach. They are easy to preach because there are so many topics you can write about, but they are hard to preach because it's hard to know which topics to choose! If you are planning your next sermon for the Christmas season, you should start spending time in prayer and ask the Lord to show you what your congregation needs to hear. Allow God to speak to your heart about the most pressing issues within the body of the church today.
If you're having trouble finding topics for your sermon, here are some message ideas for this year.
Do not Forget Christmas
People forget Christmas for 2000 years! When Jesus was born in the manger, many people missed the big event because they were too busy with all the tasks of the day. As much as the times have changed over the last 2000 years, many things are still the same! The tasks that consume our time may be different, but we are still busy buying events for everyone to remember the real reason for Christmas.
During this holiday season, take the time with your family to recognize the miracle of the birth of Jesus and the sacrifice that He has made for us so that we may have eternal life. Christmas sermons should always emphasize the miracle of the birth of Jesus.
Most people do not understand the meaning of many Christmas traditions that we know today. Preach a sermon that begins by talking about the many traditions we observe during the holiday season. Many of these traditions are rooted in Christian roots, but most people do not understand the historical significance of most of these roots. People will pay attention to sermons when the topics relate to popular traditions that most people can identify with, and you can use them to switch to a meaningful sermon of Christmas.
The Grinch Who Stole Christmas
There is a real Grinch trying to steal Christmas. He calls himself Satan. He tries to remove the real meaning of Christmas in a sinister way. The devil is smart because he distracts you without even realizing what is happening. We go to Christmas parties, spend days decorating and spend thousands of dollars on Christmas presents.
These are just a few topic ideas for your Christmas sermons. No matter what sermons you decide to preach this year, be sure to follow the will and direction of God by praying and fasting regularly!
