2013-12-22_The Perfect Christmas Verse

Date 2013-12-23

“And immediately all the crowd, when they saw him, were greatly amazed and ran up to him and greeted him.” (Mark 9:15 ESV)

So why is this is the perfect Christmas verse when it doesn’t seem to have much to do with the birth of Christ?

This week at Imprint Church, we studied the Christmas story from the perspective or Micah 5 and Matthew 1 & 2. What we see in these stories are the very different reactions between the three wise men and King Herod when they learned about the coming of Jesus. The wise men traveled for two years to find the Christ Child, whereas Herod was less than six miles away and never made the effort.

How many of us are missing Jesus by about 6 miles? How many of us are doing our own thing and will not go out of our way to see if Jesus really is who the Bible says he is?

Listen to this audio podcast to learn why the perfect Christmas verse involves you running to greet Jesus in your life.
