Brothers and Sisters,

 Now that the Advent/Christmas season has past, let's reflect back on our series, "How to have a Great Christmas". The series presented lessons drawn from the lives of key people in the story of Christmas as found in God’s Word, the Bible.

The Battles of the Heart - what did I learn in the following areas?

Righteousness

Graciousness

Truth

The Art of Gift-Giving - what changes did I make in:

Planning

Personalizing

Pricing

Presenting

The Symbols of the Season – did I turn any of these familiar symbols into comforting reminders or expressions of worship?

Nativity Scenes  That really happened in human history!

Music                   Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace…

Credit Card         My debt came due. It cost. He paid it. For

                   that I worship Him!

Christmas Card I am on God's friendship list

Wrapped Gift      My salvation is a gift!

The Threats to our Throne or the Grudge that Stole Christmas- what did I do with grudges?

I kept feeding them

I wore myself out carrying them around

I took them to the cross and left them there

What Gift Did I Receive this Past Christmas?

Peace       

Purpose    

Presence

 I hope your Christmas really was GREAT!

 

-- Pastor Tom
