Christmas is all about the baby Jesus. We celebrate the truth that “unto us a child is born, to us a Son is given” (Isaiah 9:6-7).
The Creator of the universe cloaked Himself in flesh and blood and submitted Himself to the care of human parents as a vulnerable, dependent child. It’s the ultimate expression of humility.
On our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Unwrapping the Real Christmas,” British evangelist Canon J.John has a challenge for you this Christmas: as you celebrate the baby Jesus, allow your heart to consider the rest of His life as well.
Move from the cradle to the cross.
The core of everything that’s wrong in the world today is the problem of the human heart. We’ve all got sinful hearts (Romans 3:23) that pollute our relationships and that negatively impact our households, our communities, and our world. That’s why God sent us a Savior and why Jesus Christ purchased our forgiveness on the cross.
With plenty of humor, he explains how Christmas assures us that the claims of Christianity are true and why only Christ can fill our lives with hope in the midst of life’s problems. You’ll learn while you’re laughing.
Easter and Christmas are my favorite holidays because they underscore the heart of Christianity. God entered the world and saved humanity in a way that it could never save itself. Life overcomes death and sets our lives on a positive course filled with hope and purpose!
