Dec 26 Devotion: The Christmas Story

The Christmas Story

Luke 2:1-20; Matthew 1:18-25

There are a lot of great stories in the Bible that we enjoy, but to me the Christmas story is among the best. Outside of the predictions of Christ’s coming, this is the start of the Redemption Plan of Mankind. Bethlehem, Calvary, Resurrection, Ascension, sitting at the right hand of the Father, my what a story!

     To some, Christmas is Giving and Receiving gifts.

     To some, Christmas is a time of eating, drinking, and parties.

     To some, Christmas is just another day.

To me – The Christmas Story is a story of surrender.

  1. Christ surrendered to bear the sins of the world.- Phil. 2:5-8

  2. Mary surrendered to bear the Saviour to the world.- Luke 2:26-38

  3. Joseph surrendered to bear the shame of the thoughts of the world. Matthew 1:18-25

May we surrender to the-

  1. The Truth of Christ bearing the sins of the world

  2. The Testifying of Christ the Saviour to the world

  3. The Thoughts of Christ-like living shone from the world
