Jesus Is a Better King

Dec 24, 2023

At Christmas, we retell the story. Caesar & Herod, Zechariah & Elizabeth, Mary & Joseph, the angels, the shepherds, the innkeeper, and the wise men. And in these narratives about the birth of Jesus, the Gospel writers are wanting us to know that Jesus is a king. All the kings in the Old Testament point to Jesus.

And sometimes, it's okay to admit that you don't know what to do. It's okay to say to God, "I don’t know how you’re going to fix this, solve this, deliver us, provide for us. I just don’t know. But I’m going to pause (right now) and focus on Jesus – I’m going to look to you. YOU alone are my deliverer. YOU alone are my savior." This Christmas, look to Jesus.
