It's All About Jesus - RN 063

It’s my favorite time of the year – Christmas! I believe in the Christ child and what His birth meant for our world, so I wanted to give Him the credit he deserves and hopefully deliver a topic that’s fit for a King.

In my home growing up, it was a tradition to read Luke 2:1-14 aloud on Christmas Eve and I’ve continued that in my own household. It’s always been one of my very favorite passages from the bible.

The bible contains several prophecies concerning the birth of the Messiah that Jesus fulfilled at His birth:

Promised through the seed of Abraham

Promised through Isaac

He would come from the tribe of Judah

Born in the family of Jesse

Born from the house of King David

Born in Bethlehem

Born of a virgin

Worshipped and presented gifts by kings

Worshipped by shepherds

His birth would cause weeping (Herod called for the killing of boys 2 and under)

He would have to flee to Egypt for a time

He would be called Lord

Here are some of my favorite things about Christmas:

The beautiful lights

Egg nog

Red and green peanut M&Ms

Christmas music

Family gatherings

Giving gifts to others

In this season of love, let’s not forget that there are so many who aren’t as fortunate as others and may need that extra care and support to make it through. That may come in the form of financial help, food, warmth, or even just your company. The overall message of the season is LOVE. So let’s spread it all around.

Merry Christmas!
