The Story of Christmas
This Christmas, we will look at a passage from the second chapter of Titus, which teaches the GRACE of God. As we break down the passage verse-by-verse, we see five themes appear around the words Wonder, Priority, Waiting, Rescue, and Witness. Join us this season to study and bring a little more of these qualities into our lives, all through the Grace of God.
The Story of the Angels*
“The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.”
Countless times we read in Scripture, both old and new testaments, that an angel of the Lord appeared to people. Throughout the Christmas story, we read of angels appearing to Joseph, Mary, and the shepherds, and in the end is present with them all at the scene of Jesus’ birth. Each time the angel appeared, it said, “Do not be afraid.” How often have situations come our way where God’s grace appeared, but we were too afraid to welcome His presence? We instead allow our fear to keep us from letting go of the control and allowing His grace to work. Imagine the joy and peace we could feel if we would just let go of our fear. Imagine what He would make known to us. We have nothing to fear. Our Savior is here, and His grace appears to each of us.
