The Christmas-Easter Connection, Part 1

Good morning, church!

It’s been a long and difficult year, and we turn gratefully this morning to consider the hope we celebrate at Christmas, now only days away. Our message today reflects upon the magnitude of the birth of Jesus as well as its connection to Easter when we celebrate His sacrificial death on the cross. In this first part, Pastor delves into scripture surrounding Christ’s miraculous birth.

Closing thought

“Faith is not a bargain with God—I will trust You if You give me money, but not if You don’t. We have to trust in God whether He sends us money or not, whether He gives us health or not. We must have faith in God, not in His gifts.”

Oswald Chambers
