Once in our world, a stable had something in it that was bigger than our whole world. – C.S. Lewis

Christmas represents the greatest rescue mission the world has ever known. That the story of our Saviour, who descended from the presence of angels to the filth of a stable, whose life from swaddling clothes to the folded garments in an empty tomb, was all unfolded for us through his unconditional love. God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Bible, the Church, your family

The Christmas message begins at the cradle, a cross and a crown. On that first Christmas night, the Bible tells us about the angel coming to those fearful shepherds and saying, “Fear not, I bring you good news” (Luke 2:10). Second, there’s the cross. Christmas, to have meaning, cannot be separated from the cross. The angel said at the birth of Jesus, “He will save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21). Jesus Himself said, speaking just before his death, “For this cause was I born” (John 18:37). He was the only person in history who was born with the purpose of dying. The Apostle Paul years later said, “Christ Jesus
came into the world to save sinners” (1 Timothy 1:15). God is saying to sinful man, “I love you. I love you so much I gave my Son.” But he’s saying more than that. He’s saying, “I can forgive you, because of what he did on the cross.” And this is good news this Christmas! At the cradle, he was in the stall of an animal. At the cross, he wore a crown of thorns.

This is the promise of Christmas. This is our hope. This is the Christmas star that lights our darkness. This is the assurance that a new day is coming, through the Messiah, whose name is called by Isaiah the prophet.

Isaiah 9:6
Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
