I’m sure you’re already feeling the Christmas “squeeze”. You know, the pressure to out decorate your neighbors, shopping for all the right gifts, way too many parties, and oh yeah family in town or traveling. So much squeezing us into this false reality of what the true meaning of Christmas is all about.
We want to encourage you to be intentional this month and not miss it or let your kids miss it. Our focus is Jesus. The King of Kings that has come to dwell with us and show us what God is like and take care of our sin problem and bring salvation!
As we teach on Isaiah 9:6 and the names of Jesus in our Sunday series: The Promise of Christmas, our heart is that it inspires you to respond to Him and allow Jesus to be front and center in everything you do this season. Let Jesus permeate your mind and heart with the music you listen to, the movies you watch, the scriptures you read, and the meaningful conversations you have with your family and others about who God is and what He has done for us.
