CHRISTMAS CANDLELIGHT SERVICE
Christmas is truly a season of giving. Sometimes the stress of “giving” takes the joy out of the Holiday as parents, friends and family who want so badly to give the very best gifts are left feeling like they can’t do enough. But what if all your loved ones want from you is, well, you.
In a world that is focused on exalting self—self-esteem, self-awareness, self-confidence, self-image, self-sufficiency, self-improvement, and even selfies!—what if you humbled yourself? What if this Christmas, you put self on the shelf and focused on the interests of others? How would that change your marriage, your children, or even your job?
The greatest gift you can give Jesus on his birthday is yourself. It’s the greatest gift you can give your parents, your children, your spouse …. And if you want to give all of yourself to those you love, you have to start by giving all yourself to Jesus.
