As the festive season approaches, many Christians reflect on the meaning and significance of Christmas. We might have heard that Christmas has something to do with the first coming of Christ and His birth in Bethlehem 2000 years ago. But do we as Christians really know the significance of this and what benefit we have from Christ's birth? These short spiritual texts, designed to be done each week, offer a chance to meditate on the theme of Christ's incarnation and seek the true reason for the season. Over the next four weeks, we will consider four different Bible texts relating to the first coming of Christ. In these we will try to grasp some of the wisdom from the scriptures and see how we can be edified in knowing the theme that is Christ's birth.
These devotionals will be published weekly during the month of December, one each Sunday up until Christmas eve. The texts are written by Joel Hietanen of Agape International Baptist Church.
