The Lord has prepared another abundant banquet for us this week from Luke 2:1-20, from which Pastor Li-Shang will reveal amazing insights of God’s heart through the birth of His son. The Creator of the universe did not descend into the world with the fanfare of a VIP, but He came “Walking in Our Shoes.” In fact, the shoes He walked in on that first night in Bethlehem do not even come near to our basic standard of care for childbirth today.
Somehow, Jesus thought that self-denial is so important that He went through extremes to make this point. This is the message of Christmas – our God becoming so helpless, so obscure, so underprivileged, and so misjudged – that we have no excuse. Let us then lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.
If you cannot attend in person, the online stream will be available at around 10:45 AM, Central Time.
