Summary

So how should Christmas be celebrated? Together! As a unified body. Harmoniously. How should the Christian life be lived out? The same! The birth of Jesus might have been quite lonely for Mary and Joseph had the shepherds not been dispatched by angels to witness the glorious moment. Likewise, Jesus could have pulled off God’s redemptive plan all alone but instead He chose twelve disciples. On the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit came like a rushing wind with tongues of fire, He could have just lit upon the twelve, or the hundred and twenty. But when the Spirit moved on Peter to boldly proclaim the Gospel, three thousand souls were saved. The church was born and it’s kept on growing ever since. As a family of believers we live between the Advents. As assuredly as Jesus came the first time, He will come a second time. In the meantime we have the privilege of celebrating His birth, His life, His cross, His empty tomb, and His occupied throne and we get to do all that together! God rest ye merry gentlemen in this Good News and likewise all ye merry ladies!
