In our culture today, it is common for people to forget the true meaning of Christmas - and its significance. The celebration of Christmas is much bigger than a secularized holiday. Christmas is about God's plan of salvation, which He set in motion before time began. In Why the Nativity?, we will discover how the most minute details of Christ's coming were foretold in Old Testament prophecies. We will see that from the Davidic lineage of Jesus and His Virgin birth, to the worship by angelic hosts, common shepherds and wise men, that God was pointing us to the birth of the Messiah.

Why No Room in the Inn?

Description

What an astounding thing, that when Jesus came to be born, they could find no room for Him. God placed a special star in the sky just to herald Jesus' birth and bring wise men from far-off lands; so why did He not provide a vacant room? From the very beginning, Christ was destined for and accepted humanity's rejection. The lack of room at the inn represents our own failure to make room in our hearts for Him, and it demonstrates His love and grace as He has reserved a special place in heaven for us. Covers Luke 2:7.

This is not a picture of someone who craves attention or notoriety, but it is someone whom God has chosen to participate in the birth of Christ. Covers Luke 2:8-14.
