It all happened in a moment – a most remarkable moment. God came near. He came not as a flash of light or as an unapproachable conqueror, but as One who first cries were heard by a peasant girl and a sleepy carpenter. The hands that help him were not manicured, but callused and dirty. No silk. No ivory. No hype. No party. No hoopla. God had come near…. For you. Travel back in time and relive Christ the Song of God becoming a man. Come with Max Lucado as he brings to life the most important event in history… when God came near. And as you catch a vision of this incredible moment, let it mark the beginning of a new life for yourself. God came near. If he is who he says he is, there is no truth more worthy of your time.
We all experience seasons of winter-a lost job, a broken relationship, an unwelcome doctor’s report. Sometimes redemption seems impossible, that Christmas may never come. And yet, 2,000 years ago, Christmas did come. A Savior was born. God came near. And today he still comes.
It was a night like no other. A night that forever punctuated the timeline of history. A night that introduced hope to humanity. Two thousand years ago, the world desperately needed a Savior. Not much has changed!
In every great story, love is demonstrated through action. Is there any greater expression of love than the Christmas story?
Joy to the world! The Lord is come! Let earth receive her King!
As Christmas nears, it often seems the world is anything but peaceful. Lengthy travel. Tight budgets. Family feuds. Not too unlike the very first Christmas 2,000 years ago.
On Christmas day, we light the final candle of Advent, celebrating the greatest gift in all of history, Jesus.
