It’s so easy for us to glance over the Resurrection story because of our Easter traditions and festivities. But how often do we really stop to take a look at the beauty of what Christ really did for us?
Have you ever made a list of things you need to start doing at the beginning of a new year? Why is the compulsion usually to add new things to our life? This year, what if we tried the opposite? What if we used this time of year – not to add – but to eliminate those things that prevented us from becoming all that God wants us to become? What if we inventoried our lives, and just quit some things? In this series we’ll be looking at scripture to help identify areas in which God might just love us to throw in the towel.
To keep our eyes fixed on Jesus this Christmas, we’ll be looking beyond the classic Christmas story to explore what led to Jesus’ birth in the first place. Why was Jesus born where he was? When he was? Come to think of it, why was he born at all? We’ll dive into history to examine what was happening in Bethlehem, Jerusalem, and Rome that will help us answer these critical questions.
