The Christmas Story
The true Christmas Story starts with a cradle, but it continues to a cross, and it concludes with a crown. Just as we do not believe you should leave Jesus on a cross, because he is a risen Lord, I also believe you should not leave Jesus in a cradle because he’s no longer a baby lying in a manger. He is a King on the throne of this universe.
I believe that the Christmas Story and a Christmas Sermon are both found in this single Christmas Sentence:
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. – Matthew 1:21
