JESUS OUR ONLY HOPE

It seems more critical than ever that we enter into the Christmas season reflectively. For most people, this season evokes a sense of nostalgia and togetherness. Even when they don’t understand the holiday’s theological implications, it still prompts a desire to see love and peace prevail. 
For those of us who recognize Jesus as Lord, Christmas is even more significant. This holy infant came into the world to rescue humanity from our brokenness and division. He grew up and conquered sin and death, and He has commissioned the church to create more disciples who will follow after Him. 
If you’re looking to enter into the season on a high note, why not gather your family around the birth story from the “JESUS” film? Sometimes, our familiarity with this story can stop us from taking time to reflect. We hope this clip will help reignite wonder and awe of the Christmas story. 
As you watch this nativity clip, try to envision the birth of Christ for the first time again. Think about the impact that the angel’s words had on the young Mary. Consider the courage she showed in welcoming this experience into her life. Wrestle with the fact that God announced Jesus’s birth to a bunch of shepherds and not rulers and authorities. 
The Christmas story is not just an inspirational tale; it’s a critical historical event. Any hope humanity has for true and lasting peace is only possible because of a child born in a manger a couple thousand years ago.
May this season be an opportunity for you and your loved ones to reconnect with that life-changing story.

KEEP LOOKING TO JESUS!!!
GOD’S PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE
