Saving Christmas From the Calendar

Saving Christmas From the Calendar

The incarnation didn’t just happen once upon a time a long time ago. When Jesus was preparing to leave His disciples, He promised them that the Holy Spirit would come and take up residence in their hearts, empowering them to carry the Gospel to the ends of the earth. This means that the incarnation continues in the lives of men and women fully submitted to God. We (the church) are now the hands and feet of Jesus in the world. Join us for the final message in the Saving Christmas series as we explore what it means to live like every day is Christmas. 

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
