The Purpose of the Process
by Ministry Support on December 29th, 2021
“But Mary was treasuring up all these things in her heart and meditating on them. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had seen and heard, just as they had been told” (Luke 2:19-20). God brings the story full circle. How many times do we go through seasons that seem never-ending? How many times do we find ourselves walking a road that we never intended to take? Perhaps...  Read More

A Foreshadowing
by Ministry Support on December 23rd, 2021
“Then she gave birth to her firstborn Son, and she wrapped Him snugly in cloth and laid Him in a feeding trough—because there was no room for them at the lodging place” (Luke 2:7) God demonstrates His humility through the birth of Jesus, as we’ve discussed before. We see that He came to earth in a humble state as a baby, and while He could’ve chosen any life on earth, He chose to be a carpenter’s ...  Read More

For Love and Peace
by Ministry Support on December 10th, 2021
“And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!’” (Luke 2:14).  We hear talk of God’s love all the time, but have you ever considered that if God was not a personal, loving God, then there would never have been a Christmas story? There would never have been a reason for Jesus to ...  Read More

The Innkeeper of Our Hearts
by Ministry Support on December 9th, 2021
“While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped Him in cloths and placed Him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.” Luke 2:6-7 There’s no room in the inn. When we think about the Christmas story, sometimes we can’t help but think about the innkeeper who told Mary and Joseph that there was no room for ...  Read More
