We hear the story, see the performances, and read the sentiments on the cards year after year; Jesus was born in Bethlehem to a virgin mother and placed in a lowly manger because there was no room for them in the Inn. But do we ever stop to consider what life changing lessons we can glean from the details of the Christmas story, or have we always been so caught up in the busyness of the season that we have neglected to ponder or acknowledge the true reason for His birth? Join me as we delve into some of the minuscule, often overlooked details that surrounded the birth of our Lord and Savior, and be encouraged to apply the wonder of the story to your daily life. This year, let’s do more than go through the motions of this sacred holiday, as we pause, reflect, and allow the Christmas story to change our lives so that we may be a reflection the real reason we celebrate this holy season.
"These reflections on the advent of Jesus Christ is an honest, deeply personal and insightful help to integrate scriptural study into daily living. The author transports the reader back into the ancient events, generating questions about how we live now in light of those events." - Jim P
