It can be easy to get caught up in the Christmas season and miss out on the reason we celebrate. This video is a funny reminder that the baby born in the manger, is the same Jesus who ultimately died for our sins. He’s not just the reason for the season or the reason for cool bracelets. Jesus is worth celebrating all year.
Do you ever feel that God is nowhere near and can’t understand your pain? Over 2000 years ago, Jesus, God’s Son, came into the world, not as royalty but as a baby born in a stable full of muck and animals. In this video Tommy reminds us with powerful imagery of the sacrifice that Jesus made by humbling himself to become one of us. It was a dirty job and he didn’t have to do it…but the world is changed because he did.
What happens after we celebrate that Jesus conquered death and rose from the grave? Matthias stepped in as the 12th disciple after Judas was gone, and as he reflects on witnessing Jesus’ ministry over the years, he makes a declaration that he will love God, love others, and that he will lead others to Jesus.
This final mini-movie in the Who Do You Say I Am? Easter bundle gives congregations a chance to explore what comes next after Jesus has risen? Now that we know Jesus is the Messiah, what will we do about it?
Nobody would expect lowly shepherds to be some of the first to hear about the birth of the Messiah. But God’s angel comes to these men with good news, calling them to praise. They’re invited to be part of the story, reminding us that God calls us all to Himself.
The character of our Savior should move us to respond with worship. His radiance, His glory, His passion and His love should leave us in awe of Him. His sacrifice, His mercy, His power and His righteousness should challenge us to pursue Him with everything. He is our Deliverer, Redeemer, Teacher and Messiah. How will you respond to His character?
Christmas is so much more than a holiday. It’s a time to stop and remember the amazing grace of God, the birth of The Messiah and the grace God has shown us through Him. This Christmas, may the world see Christmas for what it truly is…a celebration of our Savior, the only Son of God.
