Matthew 2: 13-23 (NKJV)

Introduction:  Lucy and Linus share their hopes for Christmas which are quite different, and it points Lucy to look at another side of the meaning of Christmas..

Sermon Focus:  Before we begin our celebration of Christmas, it is important for us to look at the other side of Jesus’ birth and life.

  • Because looking at the other side of Christmas gives us a better understanding of where Jesus was born and how He lived.
  • While looking at the other side of Christmas we get a glimpse at how God directs lives..
  • Finally, we see that looking at the other side of Christmas opens up our eyes to consider God’s call on our lives.
