CHRIST BEGINS

Jesus is the Son of God, but at the same time he is truly human. As he grew and developed, he prepared himself for his role as the Savior of his kind. This series takes a look at a few of the experiences he had as he began his ministry. In thinking about these accounts, you'll have the chance to appreciate the life Christ lived (for you) as well as to learn from his experience. 

Most of all, though, let's use this series as a chance to celebrate the fact that God provided for us a perfect solution to the problem of evil. Christ was everything we needed and everything we couldn't have been on our own. He is the light in the dark that humanity so desperately needs.


You Are Not Alone

God did not invent loneliness. 

He invented its opposite. He, himself, is never alone, since the triune God is three persons in one God. When he set out to create the universe, his goal was to show the benefit of connection, togetherness, and unity to you. You were not meant to be alone. You are meant to be with.

The most evil thing in the universe is isolation. It is the hallmark of hell and the desire of the devil. And every time you act selfishly and rebel against all that is right, you take a step away from God - and a step toward loneliness. That's what makes Christmas so heart-warmingly remarkable. 

He came to that which was his own. You are not alone.
