WORD & WORSHIP ~ Christmas – Sweet Little Jesus Boy

Today we are taking a few minutes to examine some precious verses along with a beautiful song.  

We’re calling it Word & Worship

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”  John 1:14

OUR WORD for TODAY:  

But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.  Galatians 4:4-5

Christmas season is about keeping Christ as the center of Christmas.

 On their way to Jerusalem, Jesus and his disciples stopped to visit
 Martha, Mary and Lazarus.  While Mary sat at Jesus’ feet listening to His teaching, Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing.

Luke 10:40 says “But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made.”  

 In all her busyness Martha complained to Jesus that her sister wasn’t
 helping her.

Jesus replied, “Mary has discovered what will not be taken away from her.”  Luke 10:42

 Perfection isn’t reached in the gifts we buy, the decorations we hang or the
 food we prepare.  Perfection lies in our relationships; the time we spend together and the love we show others. Jesus, family and friends are eternal. 
 My prayer is that you discover what will not be taken away from you this Christmas season. 

God does not want us worried over the details so much that we leave Christ out of our Christmas.

May you have a “Mary” Christmas!
