Would you enjoy a quiet and peaceful Christmas Eve service with acoustic carols and candle light? After a year of so much turmoil in the world, I think this is exactly what we need. I want us to have a time to refocus our lives on the deepest meaning of Christmas. “The meaning of Christmas” may sound cliche’, but there is real meaning for us in celebrating the birth of Jesus. In that moment, God changed forever, the way He speaks to people. He changed the way He would relate to us. He revealed His true nature in a way that had never been seen before. And most importantly, He created a new type of human.
We see it in Christ but we also see it in ourselves. C.S. Lewis called it the “Next Evolution Of Man” – A person inhabited by the very Spirit Of God. The Almighty would never again dwell in temples built by people but in the people that belong to Him. If you need a fresh infusion of God in your life – if you need a vision of good news and great joy – if you need to make God the priority over this next year, show up for Him. He showed up for us all, not to condemn us but to save us. And He deserves our praise!
