December 19—The Nativity Story and Your Story
Well, folks, it’s official—Christmas Eve is exactly one week away. Between Christmas parties, shopping, and baking cookies with my 19-month-old (and if you have a toddler, you know “baking” means getting more sprinkles on the carpet than on the cookies), the month of December has flown by. As busy as December gets, it’s easy to lose sight of the real reason for celebrating Christmas.
Of course, as Christians, it’s important to remember that many don’t know Christ or understand Christmas’s true importance. If you have unbelieving friends or neighbors, consider inviting them over for a movie night to watch The Nativity Story, which was mentioned in this month’s learner guide. That movie is a great way to open a dialogue about the gospel.
And if you’re like me and the thought of sharing your faith terrifies you, you can benefit from the wisdom in this audio clip from Threads’ author Michael Kelley.
