Christmas comes and goes so quickly. But the way we believe changes the way we think about and remember Christmas. We once again face the start of a brand new year and you have to make a decision. Do you let the lessons and memories of this Christmas make you stronger and closer to Jesus or do you let the moments slip away? In this study, we continue in Luke 2, but we think about the importance of belief and how we make Christmas last.
Welcome to the Sunday before Christmas! This morning we continue our Believe series as we look at the details. It is going to be an exciting morning of worship.
There is much to praise Him for as we gather to celebrate His birth! Get Ready, the celebration is about to begin.
Deeply embedded in the story of Christmas is a word that takes us from simply hearing about the birth of Christ to allowing our lives to be transformed by His love. The word is “Believe.”
It is with an expectant heart that we believe. With this belief we find hope and peace through the Song that God sent down to earth. For a follower of Jesus the word “Believe” used during the Christmas season is loaded with hope and excitement. Yet the word “Believe” is also tossed around this time of year by others who have no idea what to really believe in. So as we begin this Christmas celebration, it is time to climb aboard for the journey of a lifetime and experience Christmas in a real, electrifying, and life changing way. When it seems that magic of life has slipped away – we find it all again on Christmas Day.
So how about you? Are you ready and wanting to believe?
