Why does Jesus birth cause such a stir?
Think about it. The birth of a peasant child born in an insignificant little town in the Middle East is still being celebrated today. In fact, it is the most celebrated event on the planet!
What makes Christmas so special? The birth of Jesus spilt history into BC and AD. Every time you write a check, you acknowledge the birth of Jesus Christ.
Christmas was God’s idea. He planned when it would happen, where it would happen, how it would happen and why it would happen. So, lets go to the text that tell us the second purpose of Christmas …
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.” Luke 2:8-10 (NIV)
Christmas is a time of celebration … a time to celebrate the message of the Good News! What is the good news?
WOULD YOU HELP US SPREAD THE WORD?
Could you take just a moment and contact a friend and share the link to this message and encourage them to listen as well? Thank you!
CHRISTMAS IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!
With Christmas only a couple of months away we know you would like to get your shopping done early AND give a meaningful gift this year to the ones you love.
Dr. Smith has written two daily devotionals that cover every day of the coming year … allowing you to give the gift that keeps on giving God’s Word and His encouragement in the lives of your family and friends.
In His Presence is a detailed look at walking with God through life’s ups and downs. Built around the premise that God welcomes you into His presence with joy and pleasure, In His Presence helps you see that the life of abundance can only be enjoyed when we take everything to the Lord and walk every day at His right hand.
In His Image explores God’s great love for humanity from every book of the Bible. From the creation of Genesis to the culmination in Revelation, God’s love shines through every page. Never is this ever clearer than in the times of Israel’s great betrayal of their God. His passionate pursuit of His children can be heard dripping from his voice as He calls them (and us by proxy) back to His shelter and protection.
