http://trocbroc.blogspot.co.uk/ is hosting A Pause in Advent again this year. Every Sunday in Advent I will posting some thoughts about Advent.
At Church this morning we were handing out a little booklet called "The Real Christmas". So what is Christmas all about for you. Christmas is the time we remember that the baby born in the manger is Immanuel, God with us. He is Jesus, the rescuer and He is the Christ. Jesus is God's real solution to the real problem with the world, our need for forgiveness. It is about God's genuine love for us in sending his only Son to rescue us. And about how we should respond to him.
So when you see a nativity scene how do you respond? If you know Jesus then the challenge is to be known as one of Jesus' people. If you do not know Jesus then why not take a closer look this year. Read one of the Gospel accounts, go check out your local church. Find "The Real Christmas".
