Christmas can so easily become routine or monotonous, or we can get wrapped up in gifts, and trees and carols. We begin to feel like it’s the same story, that we’ve heard one hundred times before.
But what we celebrate at Christmas was not a normal event, it was miraculous and wonderful. The birth of our Jesus should fill us with awe and wonder. A God full of glory, the creator chooses to become one with humanity. God decides to become one with us so that we have a relationship with him. We who are so wretched are at one with a Holy God! That is nothing short of a miracle. It is a wonder!
In this sermon, Renatta retells the story of the angels visiting the shepherd and challenges us to be amazed and in wonder at what is doing.
