Today, Pastor Phyl began his series on one of his favourite Christmas carols, "Tidings Of Comfort And Joy". Comfort is such an important thing. It is something that we strive for.
Pastor Phyl discussed the three 'C's' of Christmas:
Christmas can be our comfort. It brings us the comfort of certainty, as it is always on the same date. It gives us something to look forward to, and at Christmas, we are reminded of the idea that every little thing is going to be alright.
Christmas also brings us the comfort of community. Traditions allow us to get together, and we can use this time of year for developing better community with people, whether it is family, friends, or neighbours.
The most important comfort of all, is the Christ of Christmas. He is the center of the center of the center. He came do save us from ourselves, and He's alive right now, all we have to do is look to Him.
Will you look to the comfort of Christ this Christmas?
