Because It’s Christmas
December asks a lot from us. Love, joy and peace are all components of a holiday spirit that can feel elusive. When we embrace Christmas and prepare our hearts and homes for Christ’s birth, a season of joy can be ours.
November 27 | Believe | John 1:1-18
Sometimes the innocent joy of Christmas experienced by children becomes a tired cynicism of the season when we become adults. We can still find the beauty and excitement of Christmas. But, it will come from believing in a Savior, not a season.
December 4 | Forgive | Isaiah 11:1-9
Christmas is a time for giving – presents to our friends and family, time to service, and money so others can enjoy gifts. While we are in this giving mode, why not give the gift of forgiveness? Jesus came to earth to reconcile us to God and others. Let us remember that gift this Christmas.
December 11 | Worship | Luke 1:46-55
When the angel told Mary that she would be the mother of Jesus, her first response was one of worship. This Advent, amid the rush of gifts, parties and decorating, we can follow Mary’s example and offer our devotion to the Christ child.
December 18 | Be Joyful | Luke 2:8-15
