Why is Christmas so special to believers? On Christmas day, we commemorate a one-of-a-kind, historical event when God entered the world as a tiny baby. Our God is transcendent and cannot be confined by place or time, yet He was born at one time and in one place. There was an actual “silent night” in a little town named Bethlehem. There were actual cattle and sheep in a real stable. There was an actual angel chorale proclaiming to astonished shepherds! And, yes, there was an actual “new and glorious morn” when, for the first time ever, the world had a real reason for hope and joy. In old classics and new songs, we remember that actual day as we Worship the
Newborn King together!
