Come and Worship - Neil Smith
When I was little, most of the excitement was about the presents under the tree, the large family gatherings, maybe a fire in the fireplace if it was a cooler day, the special sacredness of the day, but as you get older, I know that not everyone get’s quite as excited about Christmas anymore. As you age, you tend to get a bit more cynical, and your experience of Christmas changes, doesn’t it? However, stress is not what the original Christmas story sparked in the people who encountered Jesus! Their first response was not even about themselves, rather, it was about worshipping God because of His revelation and the realisation that salvation had come.
