What is Christmas really all about? Each year, the culture focuses more and more on gifts under the tree, delicious meals, holiday gatherings and hopes for a winter wonderland. These certainly can play an enjoyable part in celebrating Christmas, but there is much more at the actual heart of this season. The Bible reveals that the heart of Christmas is JESUS!
“10] Then the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11] For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.'”
~ Luke 2:10-11
Notice the instruction from the angel was to “behold” Jesus. The word “behold” is derived from the Greek word “eido” which has the literal translation of: be sure to see. The angel was saying be sure to see Jesus, don’t miss out on Him! The reason for this instruction is because Jesus is the heart of Christmas. It is about celebrating that a Savior was born, who is Christ the Lord. The Heart Of Christmas Teaching Series will help you to maximize your celebration of Christmas by putting your focus on THE HEART of this holiday. And it will transform YOUR HEART as you center your life on Jesus.
