It’s easy for us to get caught up in the rush and bustle of the Christmas season. Buying the right gifts, finding the perfect tree, putting up decorations, and pulling out that one Christmas sweater we own…it’s no wonder many people end up feeling like Christmas just passed them by. But what if we stopped and tried to see Christmas through the eyes of another? Christians have a unique view of Christmas because we get to see it in hindsight.
We know what happens and we know where the story leads. But what did the birth of Christ look like through the eyes of those who were waiting for it or who were actually there? This Advent Pastor Larry and Pastor Matt will be preaching a series called “Christmas Through the
Eyes of…” Every week we will look at a different biblical figure and try to see what the Christmas event meant to them.
What if Christmas wasn’t just a time of year we wait for but was actually the culmination of generations of faithfulness and prophecy? What if Christmas wasn’t a message of receiving gifts but instead losing everything? We will look at Christmas through the eyes of the prophets, Herod, Joseph, and Mary. These unique accounts give us a glimpse into the true and reaching power of Christmas and will help expand what Christmas looks like through our eyes.
