“Coming Home for Christmas”
December 3 Home’s Security: Matthew 1:18-25
Imagine the faith it took for Joseph, who was betrothed to Mary, to trust God, listen to the
angel, and choose the to do the right thing. God is looking for people who build their homes
on “righteousness” like Joseph did. People who will be able to listen to God and build their
families according to God’s powerful plan.
December 10 Home’s Inviting Entrance: Luke 2:1-7; Matthew 22:37-40
The baby Jesus was born in a manger with the doors open wide to the nearby shepherds
and others who came looking for Jesus. This is God’s heart for us: that we would make our
homes built with open doors to neighbors who are seeking Jesus.
December 17 Home’s Solid Foundation: Luke 1:30-33; Matthew 7:24-27
The angel Gabriel came to Mary and spoke of how she was to be the Mother of Jesus who
will, “reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.” When a home is
built on the firm foundation of the Rock Jesus Christ, that home has all the benefits of
Eternal Truth and Infinite Love.
December 24 Home’s Powerful Birth: Revelations 12
Who was that innocent baby born in the manger of simple, human, ordinary parents? That
baby is the dragon slayer – the very Son of God, sent to this world to defeat the power of sin
and death. He is also the same Lord that is born in the hearts of God’s children to bring that
same power to the world around us.
December 31 Home’s Heavenly Purpose Matthew 28:18-20
Jesus came to this earth so that all people, Jews and Gentiles, would be set free from the
power of sin and death. Our homes are to be places filled with the heart and passion of
Jesus…bringing all he teaches to all we have chance to influence.
