Multifaceted Story

Today I’m preparing for our Candlelight Christmas Eve service. As I study the account of the birth of Jesus I’m always amazed at what I didn’t see in this Christmas story the last time I looked. If ever there was a multifaceted story, the coming of the Son of God to earth is it.

This story is so rich with…

  • unusual characters
  • angels
  • dreams
  • kings
  • strangers
  • scandal
  • drama
  • joy
  • sorrow
  • gifts
  • opportunities

I pray that this Christmas you will see something new. May Christmas never be the-same-old-story-all-over-again. Look with new eyes, hear with new ears, experience with a new heart. It’s the greatest story ever told!

Merry Christmas!
