The problem with an often-told story is trying to hear it the way it originally unfolded and affected people. The Christmas story is a prime example . . . familiar to us and (yawn, ho-hum) . . . predictable. But the events surrounding the birth of Jesus were anything but expected! So much so that most of the Jewish people who were eagerly waiting for their Messiah totally missed His arrival!
Insight for Living offers a number of resources—including audio messages, a radio theater production, a beautiful picture book, and more—that help you see the Christmas story from a fresh, new angle. See this wondrous event through the eyes of the ordinary, everyday people whom God chose to involve. You’ll come away with a better understanding of the original meaning behind it all and with a heart bursting with gratitude for the incarnation of the Son of God.
In remembering God’s faithfulness in keeping His promises to send a King…a Saviour, we also expectantly look forward to the day of Christ’s return…the day when His Kingdom will be ushered in once and for all
The yuletide season is at the door once again. Stores are bustling. Halls are decked. Queues to visit Santa’s grotto are wrapping around pop-up villages in every town. If we’re not careful, the crowds, commercialism, and looping Christmas music will weigh us down more than that fourth helping of mince pie.
