The manger, the cross, and the tomb

He came

He died

He rose from the dead

That’s been our theme this Christmas in “The Wonder of Christmas”. It’s still a wonder that He came to us in a manger. It’s a wonder that He took my place on a cross. He died for me. It’s a wonder that a place where dead bodies lay is found empty. He arose victorious over death. So I,too, can know eternal life!

When you see the manger you must see the cross. He didn’t just come on a silent night. He came in humility to take on my punishment.

When you see the empty tomb, you know He’s alive and He’s coming again.

Join us at Grace Community tomorrow for one of our two Christmas Eve services at Sinagua.  The Wonder of the Manger.

Come at 4:30 (with childcare for infants through preschool) or at 5:45 (with no childcare). All are welcomed! Invite family and friends to join you. Arrive early. You don’t want to miss the opening!

Merry Christmas
