God Became a Child
The love of God that comes in the form of “God with us” has serious implications on the nature of peace. Peace was intimately connected to the birth of love, and it is through God’s love that we can discover God’s peace- good news of great joy for all people about the kingdom of God. It is God's peace, not our peace, that makes us whole; even when the world around us is broken.
From the creation of the world, humanity has fallen short of living the life God intended for us. God, in the ultimate act of love, sent his only Son to take on flesh and blood and enter our fallen world. This Son, Jesus, died for all who have lived and was resurrected from the dead. Our Savior give us hope for now and for eternity.

What comes to mind when we think of Christmas in 21st century America? Santa. The manger. Baby Jesus. Mary. Joseph. The wise men. Angels. Shepherds. Etc. But we know that the Christmas story was not "made in America." The setting was about 2,000 years ago in Israel. Roman occupied territory. Israel was looking for "Christmas": God's gift to set them free from Roman oppression. A Messiah. What does Scripture say about the Messiah? What exactly was his mission, both regarding Israel and the rest of the world? Come with the Grace United crew as we talk about God's gift embodied in Messiah.

God Is With Us
Is it really true that Jesus was involved in the creation of all things? If so, what are the implications? How can Jesus be the Creator and the "Firstborn of all creation"? Is there a contradiction in Scripture as many claim? Let's take a look...

Matthew 1:18-25 There are many names that are assosciated with Christmas. Mary, Joseph, Santa Clause, Rudolph, and the Grinch. But, three names stand out above the rest. Three names that we need to be sure not to cheapen. Three names that carry the real meaning of Christmas.
