Taking into consideration the greatest story ever told, you should think about ‘What Is Your Passion?’…
In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2(This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3And everyone went to their own town to register. 4So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.
8And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” 13Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
Your passion should move you to be certain that you have relationship with the Lord God. This story of Jesus’ incredible entrance into the world, is one that needs to move us to passionately witness so that all can be saved.
How can you be saved if you do not even think that you are lost? How do you get into heaven, then. This is the point of Christmas.
If you are relying on being a “good person” to get into heaven, you do not understand the Christmas story.
Our passion should be that of having this story of Christ so real that it leap off the pages. It then needs to come into the depths of your heart.
