With one tiny cry, everything changed. Years of oppression withering under the weight of a tiny child. But this was no ordinary child. Hundreds of years before this child came into the world, deliverance was promised. Isaiah spoke to a people who had wandered from faithfulness, who were lost in darkness. While he prophesied the coming captivity, he also promised liberation.
On that night, in the most unlikely of places, Jesus was born. Imagine his mother Mary, carefully swaddling her new baby, counting his fingers and toes. She probably gazed at his innocent face, unaware of the weight of the moment. This was the moment the world changed.
Join us as we celebrate this moment - the moment when the world changed. Many times, we approach Christmas absorbed with tradition or busyness. This year, however, let’s recognize the change that Christ brought to the world. Let’s acknowledge that in his life, death, and resurrection, we find wholeness and healing. Let’s celebrate that because Jesus’ birth changed the world, we are now called to also embody this change to a world so desperately in need of a loving Saviour.
