I hope you will be thinking and praying about your Christmas Eve missions offering. Every Christmas, we give Jesus a “birthday gift” by giving a special world missions Christmas offering. We call it “His Name is at the Top”, because Jesus should be at the top of our Christmas giving list. I recently heard somebody say, “Christmas is not YOUR birthday!” Giving so others can receive the gift of light and life is the best way to remember whose birthday we are really celebrating.
This Sunday is the second Sunday of Advent. Last Sunday, I began a new Christmas series called “Christmas from Heaven’s Point of View.” We looked at the Christmas story from the book Revelation. It’s found in Revelation 12. This Sunday we will pull back the curtain on Christmas again and see what was going on behind the scenes, in Heaven, when Jesus was born. We will be talking about the real reason Jesus came to earth.
