MURDERER
News headline: Tribal leader orders slaughter of all boys under 2

Jesus’ arrival on earth wasn’t only filled with peace and presents. The Kingdom of light was at war with the Kingdom of darkness in a very real way. Evil King Herod was disturbed by the news of a new king. After his plotting fails, his solution is to murder all boys 2 years old and younger.

Check out this gruesome story in Matthew 2:13-18 (https://bit.ly/34rON3h).

During this Christmas time let’s not get lost in the shiny lights and expensive gifts. There still is a very real spiritual battle being fought over people’s hearts. So stand your ground and fight, O Mighty Warrior.

PAGAN PRIESTS
News headline: Pagan star worshippers find Jesus!

The Magi’s story is steeped in mystery. God’s Word does tell us they weren’t kings, there weren’t necessarily 3 of them and no camel riding. They also visit Jesus later when he is a child, not a baby. Is that true?

Check it out for yourself here in Matthew 2:1-12 (https://bit.ly/3gXrPWX).

The Magi make a long, dangerous journey to find the new king. “When they saw the star, they were overjoyedthey saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshipped him” (Matthew 2:10,11). This Christmas time may we joyfully worship Jesus with all our hearts, in spirit and in truth.

SMELLY OUTCASTS
News headline: Smelly social misfits invited first to meet new King.

In Jesus’ time shepherds were clumped together with hated tax collectors and despised dung sweepers. Everyone looked down on them. They probably smelt like animals and had sheep poop on their sandals. Euw! Yet God didn’t announce Jesus’ birth to the so-called important people. He sends a huge angel squadron to share the terrifying, amazing news with the shepherds.
Read Luke 2:8-20 (https://bit.ly/34rJVev).

Who could maybe be classified as those who don’t “fit in” – the guy with no friends, the girl with loads of issues, the homeless? During Christmas time, who is Jesus asking you to share his love with?
