About This Message


Christmas Should Fill Us With…

1. Wholehearted Pursuit

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of King Herod, wise men from the east arrived in Jerusalem, 2 saying, “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star at its rising and have come to worship him.”
Matthew 2:1-2 (CSB)

I see him, but not now; I perceive him, but not near. A star will come from Jacob, and a scepter will arise from Israel. He will smash the forehead of Moab and strike down all the Shethites.
Numbers 24:17 (CSB)

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 
Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV)

2. Abounding Joy

When they saw the star, they were overwhelmed with joy.
Matthew 2:10 (CSB)

3. Fervent Worship

Entering the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother, and falling to their knees, they worshiped him.
Matthew 2:11 (CSB)

Then the angel told her: “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31 Now listen: You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give him the throne of his father David.
Luke 1:30-32 (CSB)

…Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

5. Vigorous Protection

And being warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their own country by another route.
Matthew 2:12 (CSB)
