Simply Christmas: Seek. Speak. Think.
Life slows down after Christmas for us, but not on that first Christmas. The shepherds burst with good news and blurted it out to anyone who would listen. Mary treasured up the truths about her newborn son. People went home glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. What if we did the same?
Simply Christmas: The Price of Peace
There are many classic songs of the Christmas season, but nothing quite matches the first song of Christmas, the song of the angels in Bethlehem. Their lyrics are few, but their meaning is profound. God’s favor. Peace on earth. Glory to him on high!
Simply Christmas: Best. Gift. Ever.
Few things are as exciting as finding a Christmas gift labeled To: (You). The label means someone thought about you. Someone loved you. Someone searched for just the right gift. No passage proves God’s giving heart more than Luke 2:11, the classic summary of the gift of Christmas.
Simply Christmas: One Gift Fits All?
Christmas is a time when families gather, for better or worse. Tense relationships are revealed. Sins come front and center. Which is what makes Luke 2 so incredible. The shepherds are God’s first audience for Christmas. Angels bring good news of great joy to take away their fear and welcome them (and us) to the family of God.
Simply Christmas: A Virgin REALLY Gave Birth
Many people view Christmas as a season of wishes, dreams, and heartwarming tales. But the book of Luke in the Bible gives us the real people, real places, and real hope that we find in a real, historical Jesus. This message reminds us that Jesus’ birth actually happened, which is heartwarming news!
