Christmas sermons are both the easiest and the hardest sermons to preach. They are easy to preach because there are so many topics you could write about, but they are hard to preach because it is hard to know which topics to choose! If you are planning your next sermon for the Christmas season, you should begin by spending some time in prayer and asking 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 church body today.
If you are having trouble coming up with topics for your sermon, here are a few ideas for messages this year.
Do not Forget About Christmas
People have been forgetting about Christmas for 2,000 years! When Jesus was born in the manger, many people missed the big event because they were too busy with all of the tasks of the day. As much as times have changed over the last 2,000 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 else to remember the real reason for Christmas.
During this holiday season, take some time with your family recognizing the miracle of the birth of Jesus and the sacrifice he made for us so that we could have eternal life. Christmas sermons should always emphasize the miracle of Jesus birth.
History of Christmas
Most people do not understand the meaning behind many of the Christmas traditions we have today. Preach a sermon that begins with talking about many of the traditions we observe during the holiday season. Many of these traditions are steeped 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 most people can relate to, and you can use this to transition into a meaningfulful Christmas sermon.
The Grinch That Stole Christmas
There is a real Grinch that is trying to steal Christmas. His name is Satan. He tries to take away the real meaning of Christmas in sinister ways. The devil is smart because he gets you distracted without you even realizing what is going on. We go to Christmas parties, we spend days putting up our decorations, and we spend thousands of dollars on Christmas presents.
These are just a few ideas for topics for your Christmas sermons. No matter what sermons you decide to preach this year, make sure you are following God's will and direction through regular prayer and fasting!
