We know that Jesus is God’s son, but did you know he has many other names and responsibilities in the Bible? For more, watch this short animated video for kids.
Jesus is God’s son. In the very beginning, God’s son was called “The Word of God.” We’re told in John (1:3 NLT) “God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him.” This means under God’s direction, his son created the entire universe including the first humans, Adam and Eve. For more on this story, watch this short video designed for children.
The story begins with a young Jewish woman named Mary, who was engaged to a man named Joseph. The angel Gabriel visited Mary, and told her she would have a son named Jesus. God used his power - his Holy Spirit - to cause Mary to have a baby by a miracle. Watch this charming animated video for the rest of the story!
It is the Christmas season. It is a time for happiness, giving, receiving and appreciating. There was a time not so very long ago when the main focus of the Christmas season was the birth of Jesus as the world’s Savior. We are past that now, thanks to our political correctness, and Jesus is very much an afterthought of the holidays. Well, here today Jesus is NOT an afterthought. He is NOT a divisive figure who offends people by his mere existence. No, here today Jesus is recognized as the Savior of humanity, the centerpiece of God’s plan and the King of Kings. As we honor the birth and life of Jesus today, we will do so by highlighting some personal conversations he had with various people he encountered throughout his three-and-a-half year ministry. In so doing, we will tell a story that is rarely told. Merry Christmas!
Is it true that Jewish people are favored in God's eyes and if that's true, why bother being a Christian at all?
Christmas has come - the hustle and the bustle, the lights, the music, the trees, the ornaments and the garland. Christmas has come – Santa and reindeer and elves and Frosty and movies and presents and gift wrap and cards. Christmas has come – whether you feel you can say “Merry Christmas” or just “Happy Holidays,” we are wishing well to those around us, for it is the season of good cheer and smiles. Christmas has come – family and dinner and cakes and pies and cookies and giving and receiving and football and dressing in new clothes. Yes, Christmas has come. It has certainly made its indelible mark on us yet again…. You know Christ has come – the prophecies said that he would and God’s plan said it was time. Christ has come – he was born to live so that he could die and redeem all of humanity. Christ has come – his gift was simple, yet it was the greatest and most powerful gift that could ever, that would ever be given to this world. Christ has come – and as a result, all of the human race has the opportunity for eternal life. Christ has come – has he made his indelible mark on you?
This short video answers this most poignant of all questions. This world is so troubled and every generation of mankind has faced horrible evil before going into the grave. There must be some hope, some reason for all this pain. If an all-loving God exists, when will He do something? Where is He with all of this mess? Why isn't He fixing everything NOW? Watch and be strengthened in your faith!
