The Miracle of Christmas

The Miracle of Christmas

Find new wonder in the Christmas story.

Overview

In Luke 11:33–35, Jesus says, "Your eye is a lamp, lighting up your whole body. If you live in wide-eyed wonder and belief, your body fills up with light. If you live squinty-eyed in greed and distrust, your body is a dank cellar. Keep your eyes open, your lamp burning, so you don't get musty and murky. Keep your life as well-lighted as your best-lighted room" (The Message).

Message One

The Miracle of the Christmas Story
Because we've heard the Christmas story so many times, we forget the amazing miracle it was. God came to earth in the form of a man. We need to take time to get lost in the wonder of this miracle.

Message Two

The Mystery of the Christmas Story
The fundamental mistake the religious leaders of Jesus day made was trying to force God to fit into their religious boxes (Matthew 23:23). Instead of being conformed to God's image, they tried to recreate God in their image. What they ended up with was "God in a box." There are two ways of approaching God. One approach takes God apart. We make God manageable and measurable. We reduce God to a set of propositions, seal-tight theologies, or divine formulas. Instead, experience the mystery of Christmas—the omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent God of all creation was born as a helpless little baby in Bethlehem.
