This Christmas, many of you will gather with your family around a fire or a beautifully lit tree and read the Christmas story, that beautiful story of our savior’s birth. Sometimes, when we go through this season, the picture of Jesus in our minds is one of an infant, a helpless child. But, remember, Jesus isn’t in the manger anymore. As you read the Christmas story this year, remember the cross, remember the man that came to earth sent from his Father to bring us back into a full relationship with him. Remember, the story of redemption not just the birth, the birth is nothing without the cross. This year, be sure to share the whole story.
