A Quick Introduction to the Significance of Christmas Series (this will literally consume 1 minute of your day)


Coffee

This time of year is when we celebrate the season of Christmas. It really is a season, not just a single day on our calendars, as it consumes the entire month of December and in some cases appears before the Thanksgiving turkey has been served. One would think that because “Christmas Season” begins so early it would not be difficult to remember exactly why we have this time set aside to celebrate. 
 
The point of today, and the two Friday’s following, are to help us do just that: remember why we celebrate Christmas. More than that we are going to take a look at the Significance of Christmas, and in particular, the significance of three parts of the Christmas story that are very important, but sometimes overlooked. 
 
In today’s post at 11 AM EST, we are going to take a look at the Significance of the Time (Luke 2:1-3). Next Friday we will understand the Significance of Bethlehem (vv. 4-5), and in the following Friday we will do our best, with our limited human minds, to understand the Significance of the Child (vv. 6-7). Through these three posts I hope to convey to you the sovereign hand of God working in the midst of the world he created to accomplish his will and help you see the real reason we celebrate Christmas. 
 
I invite you to head out to a coffee shop today and read this post. Taking time to slow down over a hot beverage will go well with taking a closer look at the Significance of Christmas.
