Christmas Eve

• Greg Boyd

Christmas is the day that we celebrate the birth of Jesus and of God incarnate. For most of us, this day is celebrated in a fog of normalcy. The birth of Jesus has become old news that we’ve celebrated before. The greatest truth—a beautiful, profound, mysterious, and wonderful truth—is shrouded in the boredom of the same old story, and we lose the vision of the uniqueness of Jesus’ birth. God wants us to open our heart to the beauty of this universe, and He wants us to ask Him to keep us awake to the vibrant beauty of this story.

Focus Scripture:

  • John 1:1, 14

    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

One thought on “Christmas Eve

    Outstanding, the birth of Jesus is truly beautiful. Very much heartfelt. I’m not trying to take anything from this sermon, but I don’t understand the whole fusing of the christmas ornaments and even the christmas tree with the birth of Jesus .What does christmas mean anyhow, I can’t help to think it’s paganish in nature or at the very least having to do with the effects of Constantine and Christianity merging. The psalm at the end was a nice close, God bless u brother.

"My counselor zeroed in on the root causes of my anxiety, explaining the mechanisms of why I was feeling the way I was, and what to do about it. She was very loving and compassionate and approached my situation with a technical mindset as well. A very rare combination."
