Our pastor has been teaching a series called “Don’t Miss Christ This Christmas”. It got me thinking about how we as followers of Christ can effectively shove off the busyness and commercialism of our culture. I think we are more affected by it than we really realize. Satan is so clever at deception. The answer to me is always fundamental: go to God’s Word. So if it helps, I wanted to re-post the expositional study I did on Christ’s birth a couple years ago. Some of it is in jest, poking fun at our incorrect nativities and songs, but there’s good truth to pull out too. Hope it benefits our priority, not just at Christmas time, but all the time.
