Celebrating Jesus, God's Greatest Gift
Christmas celebrates the hope that God sent Jesus to fulfill his promise and rescue creation once and for all.
God’s peace is for everyone.
We finish up the month in Luke 2:8-20. After Jesus was born, the first people to find out are some unassuming shepherds in a field minding their own business. The angel announced Jesus’ birth along with an angel choir that proclaimed God’s peace for everyone on earth. They rushed to see the baby for themselves. They were so excited that they spent the rest of the night telling everyone they could about Jesus.
God’s peace is for everyone. When life seems out of our control, peace can be hard to find, especially at Christmastime. Yet Christmas is all about the coming of Jesus, the Savior, who offers God’s peace to all people, everywhere. We pray that kids come to a new understanding of peace. We hope that this Christmas your child would come to know God’s love and believe that Jesus truly is the Savior of the world.
