Preaching Christmas

By Dr. Jack Graham

It’s hard to believe that we are just about two weeks away from Christmas. We know that your schedules are full of commitments with church members, friends, and family. It is the most wonderful time of the year, but it is also one of the busiest and most stressful times of the year. And as a pastor, you must not allow these holiday stresses to prevent you from protecting sermon preparation, especially for your Christmas or Christmas Eve service. After all, there will be many people who will come to church who are desperately looking for hope this Christmas.

As you prepare, I want to help you by sharing a few of my own Christmas sermons that hopefully will give you some ideas on strong texts to preach, clear outlines to use, or powerful illustrations to craft as you prepare to preach Jesus:
