In this sermon, our founding pastor, W. Graham Smith, talks about what it takes to make Christmas special. He looks at how different people responded during the first Christmas and what we can do ourselves to make the season special. Here are some excerpts:
“…How is Christmas going to be different for you this year?…
“…How is Christmas going to be different spiritually? How do you really discover the true meaning of Christmas? Sometimes you think, “Well, this year is going to be the year that’s really special” Well, what makes it special?
I’ll tell you what makes it special — the way you respond to Jesus Christ makes it special…”
“…Have you ever seen those catalogs that are put out for “the person who has everything?” What do you give Jesus for His birthday? Have you ever thought about that? What do you give the Person Who’s got everything? There are three things that Jesus does not have, and you can give them. to Him this Christmas.
