Merry Christmas to all of you. It’s getting really close now.
Of course, a lot of retailers are concerned about their sales being down, because we are just not shopping to the extent that we did in the past. With many people cutting back this year on purchases this year because of the economy, retailers may feel this will be a dreary Christmas.
But I suggest that this could be a greater and more blessed Christmas than you have ever experienced. After all, what is the primary message of Christmas? The essential message of Christmas is that God came to us.
As the Scripture says, “You shall call his name Immanuel,” which, of course, means “God with us” (Isaiah 7:14).
I suggest to you that this could be the most blessed Christmas of your life. Beginning with the absence of the things that have needlessly cluttered it before, combined with the presence of the One we are celebrating.
This Sunday at Harvest.
I will be talking about that and a lot more this Sunday at Harvest in our three morning services. My message title will be “The Promise of Christmas.” I hope you will join us live or watch the webcast live or archived.
