The Heart of Christmas (Part 2)
Key Texts: Luke 2:8-14; Colossians 1:19-22; Matthew 5:9

Jesus’s birth offers us peace in the middle of our difficulties and stresses. He longs to bring us peace. Peace is not the absence of conflict; it is the presence of Christ. We should believe the message of the angels and trust that His favor is on us today.

THE PEACE OF CHRISTMAS IS FOUND IN THE PRESENCE OF CHRIST
THE PEACE OF CHRISTMAS PROVIDES RECONCILIATION TO GOD
