The Amazing Emmanuel from Mainstay MinistriesSuperheroes. Thanks to comic books and bedtime stories, our imaginations have been captivated by them since childhood. We love what distinguishes them from ordinary individuals. They are capable of feats that normal humans could not do. They are courageous in the face of great opposition. And they experience isolation and separation. Something else superheroes have in common: they’re imaginary. As much as their escapades intrigue us, Hercules, Paul Bunyan, and Superman never actually existed.

There is someone who is characterized by each of those “superheroic” qualities – except one. Jesus Christ is not imaginary. He really was born, and he really did perform supernatural feats not the least of which was dying for the sin of all humanity. In this December sermon series you’ll preach on just what makes this Amazing Emmanuel the timeless hero that he is. Allow it to help you penetrate the holiday-decked walls of your church with a kind of X-ray vision that sees what most find difficult to focus on – that Christ is the center of Christmas. As your sermon series unfolds, you can also distribute one December Devotional Calendar per visitor or church family which helps your listeners to put into practice what you preach.

The Amazing Emmanuel is part of Mainstay Ministries December sermon series to help the focus of Christmas on Christ.
