Early Start on Christmas
Read Luke 1:1 through 2:52

Gayle looked across the store and noticed Christmas decorations already on display. “Seriously! It’s three months until Christmas. Why can’t they wait for Thanksgiving first?” she muttered. Later while unloading her groceries she began to think about the truth of Christ—God’s promised Savior coming to the world. She remembered the message the angels proclaimed to the shepherds.
“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord” (Luke 2:11).
The Jewish people yearned for the coming Messiah to deliver them from the harsh realities of Roman rule. Some false messiahs arose to attempt to win the allegiance of the people and had some success. However, they weren’t able to give people the peace and joy they desired. God sent Jesus to be born in Bethlehem, live a sinless life, die on a cross to pay for humanity’s sin, and rise from the dead.
The challenges of life cannot compare with the joy people can discover in the gift of Jesus Christ.
Challenge for Today: Rejoice in the truth that the Savior loves you no matter the challenge.
