Articles, Resources, and More. . . Oh My! (12/25)

Let Us Adore Him

David Mathis reminds us that the three "wise" men are nearly as shiny and pretty as our nativity scenes make them out to be. "Don't miss the message of the Magi: If such sinners as these can approach the Christ and fall down in worship, so may all."

You're Here

This is a sweet performance of a contemporary Christmas song that features a special guest—the singer's baby girl. While watching, I was struck afresh with the reality that Jesus came as a baby, just like this little one, in the Incarnation—tiny hands, quiet coos, funny faces, held by His mother—He's here!

Silent Night, Lonely Night

Carolyn McCulley struck a chord with this 2007 post at Let's remind our souls about the Hope we have in our loneliness . . . then, let's spread this Good News of great joy to the lonely ones around us.

A Baby Is Comin'

Igniter Media ignites my heart in worship again and again through their excellent resources. After you watch this video, be sure to check out their other Christmas mini-movies. Praise God that a baby came, grew up, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father!

Ever Thine Home

Barbara Rainey is developing a line of products to help make your holiday more Christ-centered. I have her ornaments on my tree this year and love them! Visit her site and listen to her talk with Nancy on Revive Our Hearts.

The Light of the Whole World

Have your children to pull up a chair and enjoy watching this Jesus Storybook Bible video together. Taken from Luke 2, it's about the shepherds encountering the Maker of the stars as a baby. You'll want to buy the book if you don't already have it—it's one of my favorites.

Christmas Stories for the Young at Heart

While you have your children's attention, listen as Nancy reads Christmas stories to a group of her friends' kids.

Must Christians Believe in the Virgin Birth?

Dr. Albert Mohler calls our attention to an important theological question—must Christians believe in the Virgin birth? The short answer is yes. But you'll want to read the article to find out why. May the Lord use it to help you share the gospel with family members and friends this Christmas.
