This week’s sermon title is: “Manifest” The first of the series Manifestation.
The word “Manifest” means to make evident or certain by showing or displaying. The word “Manifestation” is an event, action, or object that clearly shows or embodies something.
As we just celebrated Christmas, we are reminded of the promise of God through the prophets in the Old Testament that God will manifest Himself by sending Immanuel God with us. The manifestation of the birth of Jesus Christ is a necessary event. It is the mystery of God’s plan for saving humanity made manifest. But what does all this mean and how does it impact our lives.
Week, there’s no question that we as a society are constantly searching for the next best thing. Always on the lookout for what’s trendy, what’s fashionable and what will make us seem as though we’re in a better position than we actually are. We find ourselves in a perpetual cycle, always searching, but never finding. Searching for answers to all of our questions. Looking for peace of mind; looking for healing; looking for deliverance; trying to figure out our destiny and understanding our purpose on this earth.
Even as believers, we sometimes forget that we have access to the most powerful, most awesome and most wise being whoever lived. The day we accept Jesus Christ we are granted spiritual access to the culmination or manifestation of every promise that is mentioned in Scripture and more. The question is how do we obtain it?
