Let’s be honest, it’s easy to blow through the Christmas season just going through the motions. It’s easy for the traditions and celebrations of Christmas to distract us from the real “why” of Christmas. This series “Why Christmas” is designed to keep that from happening. This series is designed to keep your heart and soul clearly in touch with the “Why” of Christmas. What makes it special on the core level, the heart level, the soul level of our lives. Today, I want to show you an event that occurred at the first Christmas in the Gospel of Matthew 1:18-24. I want to make three observations from this event to highlight the specialness of Christmas.
