"Have a Merry Christmas"
“For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring Word of God.” - I Peter 1:23
I. We wonder about the miracle.
“But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.” - Luke 2:19
II. We witness to the miracle.
“When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.” So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.” - Luke 2:15-18 (NIV)
III. We worship the source of the miracle.
“On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshipped him.” - Matthew 2:11
