christmas destruction

want to know what christmas is all about? here’s something you probably won’t hear in the latest jingle on the radio or read in your trendy shopper’s guide to christmas or, unfortunately, maybe not even have preached in your church:

“Until we realize that there is something in us – something in the world – that needs to be destroyed, we will miss the meaning of Christmas.” (David Platt, “He Came…to Destroy the Devil” sermon, 12.6.2009)  

christmas is about destruction! merry christmas!

this is a quote from david platt’s message last week, december 6 (“He Came…to Destroy the Devil”) in which he unpacks 1 John 3:8b – “The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil.” he actually looks at this verse and this clear reason why jesus came within the broader context of 1 John 2:28-3:10

don’t miss this great series titled, “He Came.” the church is taking a look at the many verses in the bible that explicitly declare why jesus came. so far they have covered the following:

He Came…

  • “To Free the Captives” (11.29.2009 – preached by bart box, not david platt)
  • “To Destroy the Devil” (12.06.2009)
  • “To Serve the Helpless” (12.13.2009)
