As we enter the week of Christmas, life can get pretty hectic. With all the shopping, decorating, cooking, and socializing, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. Remember, the holiday season is meant to be enjoyed, not stressed over.
Yes, when we think about Christmas, many of us associate it with gift-giving, festive decorations, and delicious food. But at its core, Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.
According to the Bible, Jesus was born in a manger in Bethlehem over 2,000 years ago. His birth was announced by angels and witnessed by shepherds who were tending their flocks nearby. The arrival of the baby Jesus was a miraculous event, and it marked the beginning of a new era in human history.
As mentioned in this inaugural episode of BOLO:Jesus is Coming teaching Pastor Chip Ingraham has a great two-part series asking "Why Did HE Come?" It's a great Bible study and we encourage you to visit Living On The Edge for the entire series.
