A word from Pastor Matt

Matt edit small

 

Christmas is a time for giving. For hundreds of years, Christians have set aside December 25 as a time to exchange gifts. We share meals and visit family all in the memory of the birth of Jesus. It is amazing how sudden Jesus entered the world. After all, the best gifts are unexpected ones. The world was going about its business when suddenly something that doesn’t happen, happened: heaven gave the world a baby. Giving is what Christmas is all about, and God gave the world the greatest gift ever conceived on that first Christmas day.

 

I often wonder about the shepherds who saw Jesus in the manger. Did they truly understand what was happening? Further, did Mary and Joseph understand the depth of the gift transpiring before their eyes? While we cannot know for certain, my guess is that no one at the manger fully comprehended all that was happening, but it happened anyway. Christmas is a reminder to us all that all good gifts come from God. Just like those at the manger, we never know how good the gift is in the moment, but as time passes, we truly begin to uncover the depths of our Heavenly Gift. I hope that you will reflect this season on the gift of Jesus, and as you exchange gifts with your family and friends, remember the greatest gift that started it all.

 

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

"This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."

Psalm 118:24 (HCSB)
