December 24th Evening Service Christmas Eve. What Does it Mean For God to Become Flesh and Dwell Among Us?
We had a wonderful group show up for our candlelight service on Christmas Eve, the church was packed to the brim and overflowing with people and praise. Each of the Christmas Hymns echoed through the room and up into the heavens as we all sang with joyous excitement. Towards the end of the service everyone in the room was given a candle (which represents Christ’s light, hope, and love, coming into our lives), we dimmed the lights so that the only source of light in the room was the one hundred small candles that we lifted above our heads as our soft singing and worship gently pierced through the dim, stillness of Christmas night.
Pastor Mike preached a gripping sermon as he outlined the fantastic depth of what it means for the one who is life itself to become flesh and dwell among us. Together we looked at the disciples personal testimony in 1 John 1 , Luke 2, The prophecies of Simeon and Anna, The shepherds and the angels, the physical and spiritual authority of Jesus, and the reason why it all matters to you and to me.
