Believing Anyway – Believe (Session Two)

Believe is our Christmas celebration at The Church @ 434. We are understanding that when the followers of Jesus say they “believe” it means something very different than what someone who does not yet follow Jesus means when they say it. But when we look at the Christmas celebration through the lens of believing – we realize we have so much more to be thankful for. One of the amazing things about believing is that is not always convenient and we can’t always understand what is really happening around us… but there are some valuable lessons we can discover from the very first Christmas that can change our lives today.

Wanting to Believe – Believe (Session One)

Deeply embedded in the story of Christmas is a word that takes us from simply hearing about the birth of Christ to allowing our lives to be transformed by His love. The word is “Believe.”

It is with an expectant heart that we believe. With this belief we find hope and peace through the Song that God sent down to earth. For a follower of Jesus the word “Believe” used during the Christmas season is loaded with hope and excitement. Yet the word “Believe” is also tossed around this time of year by others who have no idea what to really believe in. So as we begin this Christmas celebration, it is time to climb aboard for the journey of a lifetime and experience Christmas in a real, electrifying, and life changing way. When it seems that magic of life has slipped away – we find it all again on Christmas Day.

So how about you? Are you ready and wanting to believe?
