The tree is decorated, the presents are wrapped, for the most part. Your nativity scene is in place ready for the big day–the day we celebrate the birth of Jesus. We see a babe in a manger, but that’s just the beginning of the story. It’s a great introduction to the Good News of the Gospel to use with your family and friends.
Because after Jesus came to the earth as a babe in a manger, there was a cross. It’s not what people put in their yards but it’s the reason why Jesus came. It’s not in any Christmas Carol, but that innocent baby came to be nailed to a cross so we might have life and life abundantly. Because beyond the cross is an empty tomb from a resurrected Savior whose birth we celebrate on Christmas. Merry Christmas from Faith2Action.
