A NOTE FROM PASTOR MIKE

Grace Family,

I love nativity scenes. Whether it's the large Mary, Joseph, and Jesus in my front yard or the small display I have on my desk at church all year long. I see a nativity scene in Zephaniah 3:14-17 too! A strong statement of Immanuel, God with us, mighty to save. Christmas joy in a prophecy of coming judgment.

Zephaniah shows depravity's consequences and shines a spotlight on the Gospel goodness of God's salvation. Delight in God despite grim despair. God's love overcoming mankind's hate. God's love declared and put on display; foreshadowing our eternal rejoicing in God's presence in His kingdom forever.

Does God delight in you? Is He happy with you in Christ? Is God angry with you? Is God only pleased with you when you perform well? What Biblical proof do you have? We struggle with these things. God addresses it in Zeph. 3:14-17, an uncommon and rarely preached Christmas passage.

See you Sunday,
Mike

P.S. Christmas is a wonderful time to rest in the Lord, deny yourself, and bless others. Take the opportunities God gives you to serve His purposes at home, work, school, and in your neighborhood.
