THE LIGHT SIDE OF CHRISTMAS
HAVING A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS! “The Light Side Of Christmas” “For my eyes have seen Your salvation…A LIGHT OF REVELATION TO THE GENTILES, and the glory of Your people Israel.” (Luke 2:30 & 32 NASB)
JESUS DIDN’T JUST APPEAR, HE WAS BORN
“ ‘Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him’.” (Matthew 2:2 NASB) 1. DON’T TURN TO DISTRACTIONS “Delight yourself in the Lord; and He will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalm 37:4 NASB) 2. STAY OUT OF THE CURRENT “In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night.” (Luke 2:8 NASB) “…an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them… ‘I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:9-11 NASB) 3. MAKE ROOM FOR JESUS “…laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.” (Luke 2:7 NASB) Life Group Discussion: 1.
