Sermon from December 25, 2016 at Shepherd of the Lakes Lutheran Church (WELS) of Fairmont, MN.
Scripture Readings: Isaiah 52:7-10; Hebrews 1:1-9; John 1:1-14
Text: Hebrews 1:1-9
In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times
and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son,
whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the
universe. 3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation
of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided
purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. 4
So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is
superior to theirs.
5 For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son; today I have
become your Father”? Or again, “I will be his Father, and he will be my Son”?
6 And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all
God’s angels worship him.”
7 In speaking of the angels he says, “He makes his angels winds, his servants
flames of fire.”
8 But about the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever,
and righteousness will be the scepter of your kingdom. 9 You have loved
righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you
above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.”
