The Letdown of Christmas

January 6, 2019
When Christmas is over, it can feel like one big letdown. The Christmas dinner has been eaten, the presents have been unwrapped, and the family goes back home, or we go back home. And what took maybe a month to plan is over in a few short hours. But maybe this letdown is because we were expecting something to happen that didn't fully happen. Maybe we were wanting Christmas to fill that longing in our heart that only Christ can fill. In this sermon on the story of the wise men, we learn that God has created this longing in us for Jesus and that Jesus is the solution to our need.
