As we prepare our hearts to celebrate the greatest gift known to man, the Incarnation of God in Jesus Christ, our "Twas the Night Before Christmas" series reminds us of the preparations needed to celebrate such a great gift. It’s impossible to read through the Bible without noticing how many times, and how many ways the coming of Jesus in the flesh was predicted. These prophetic announcements first came to Israel, but eventually to the whole world.
Each WKND before Christmas ’22, we invite you to open up God’s Word, given generations before the birth of Jesus in the Hebrew Scriptures. The birth of Jesus wasn’t meant to be a surprise, but a much-anticipated delivery that unveiled God’s master plan for His creation. This WKND, we begin in the beginning, with God’s first hint, a promise to a world that would need rescuing.
