For some, Christmas is a time of excitement, celebration, and family, while for others it is a time of loneliness, grief, and loss. No matter what this season holds for you, the promise of Christmas will bring you a lifetime of hope.

Christmas begins what Easter celebrates. The child in the cradle becomes the King on the cross. Because of Bethlehem, we have a Savior in heaven. These are the heart shaping promises of Christmas. Long after the guests have left, the carolers have gone home, and the lights have come down, these promises endure.

No one expected God to come the way he did. Yet the way he came was every bit as important as the coming itself. The manger is the message.

In the midst of your hectic Christmas season, Max will help you:

  • Rekindle your connection to the Christ of Christmas who offers lasting hope.
  • Lay down your endless Christmas to-do list and receive what Jesus has already done.
  • Heal your heartache by embracing the God who is always near you, always for you, and always in you.

As you curl up in a comfortable spot and look into the odd, wonderful story of Bethlehem, may you find enduring hope for all seasons of your life.

Advent Devotional Guide included.
