Joy with Jesus teaching – God said do WHAT???
Already we are seeing Christmas decorations and gifts in the stores, even though there are still several weeks before this actual holiday; and I know some people who start planning for the celebration months beforehand! Our Heavenly Father also plans way ahead, and sometimes He prompts us to do things that surprise others or even cause us to be ridiculed because other people do not understand. His plan to send Jesus to be born in Bethlehem was something the prophets foretold hundreds of years before – even though people didn’t really understand. This month’s message helps us start to focus on the real meaning of Christmas and also encourages us to follow the Holy Spirit even when we don’t understand, because God truly does know what He is doing!
