There are many stories that are told at Christmas time about presents, decorations, lights, singing, and even Santa. But THE Christmas Story is the Hope of the world coming to save lost people in need of a savior. THE Christmas story is not fictitious like many of the stories told this time of year. Let's celebrate the Christmas Story that matters most, the coming of Jesus.

As Paul faced significant challenges and potentially the end of his life, he found Gospel joy in the midst of his journey with Christ. He challenged them saying, "...it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain" (Phil 1:20, 21). Paul was able to find joy and contentment in Christ even when his situation was a discouraging struggle.

The Christian life is not meant to be lived alone.
We look at Jesus' sermon on the mount, and how He painted a picture of the difference between living a self-righteous "good life" and an actual, gospel driven, generous life.
The latter chapters of the Book of Acts give us a picture of how the gospel gained mileage in the world 2,000 years ago, and how it can gain mileage in our own lives today.
The empty tomb of Jesus shows that God moves stones that are immovable for us. That 2-ton boulder was no match for the power of God. In our lives boulders of sin, regret, anxiety, and shame that many carry throughout life can be moved through the power of God which raised Jesus from the dead.
As the early church grew, it developed momentum through the Gospel. This sermon series on the book of Acts encourages us towards building momentum in our lives in spite of barriers that stand in our way.
