How To Write A Christmas Sermon

THE CHRISTMAS SERMON primarily focuses on the Christmas story.

The Christmas story is defined by several events that took place over two thousand years ago.

To appreciate the Christmas story, you must go back in time and look at four unique events.

If you do not recognize the value of these past events, then you will not understand the redemptive nature of the Christmas story.

The Christmas story is not just about the baby Jesus. It's more than that. The message of the cradle reveals the mission of the cross.

Even the Christmas carols you sing of Jesus' birth reveal the mission of the cross.

Hark! the herald-angels sing, glory to the new-born King! Peace on earth, and mercy mild, God and sinner reconciled.

You could construct a Christmas sermon like this. There are four unique events in history that help you to appreciate and value the redemptive nature of the Christmas story.

They are...

  • A Unique Announcement (Luke 1:26-38)
  • A Unique Moment (Luke 2:7-20)
  • A Unique Mission (Luke 2:11)
  • A Unique Opportunity (Luke 2:17-20)

Now that you have your sermon outline, you will need to add sermon content to each sub-point and incidental sub-point. Your sermon content expands and explains your sermon sub-points and incidental sub-points.

To finish your Christmas sermon, you will need to write an introduction and a conclusion.

Christmas Sermon Outline

Years ago an old pioneer journeyed westward across the Great Plains until he came to an abrupt halt at the edge of the Grand Canyon. He gawked at the sight before him - a vast chasm 1.6km deep, 29km across and stretching out of sight far beyond the eye could see. He gasped and said, "Something must have happened here!"

At the Christmas season, anyone who stops to look and listen must ask some questions about what the hustle and noise is all about.

A thoughtful man or woman, seeing the lights, the decorations, the festivities and the religious services might also conclude, "Something must have happened here!"

Of course, something did happen and we need to tell the world about it. And that is that Jesus Christ came to be our Savior!

How can we know this for sure? How can we know that Jesus Christ came to be our Savior this Christmas?

  1. The Message of His Birth Declares it (Luke 2:11)
  2. The Message of the Gospel Confirms it (John 3:16)
  3. The Message of the Bible Assures it (1 John 5:11)

There are so many different ways to tell the world about the birth of Jesus Christ. But the most important feature of the Christmas message is the presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The redemptive nature of the Christmas message is unmistakeable (Luke 2:11 & Matthew 1:21).
