Christmas is a time for us to celebrate Immanuel: God with us. But this isn’t just limited to a single event in history — because Jesus didn’t just make a one-time visit to Earth. The first Christmas also looks forward to that final day when he will come again and make all things new.
On today’s episode of the Great Stories podcast featuring Nancy Guthrie and Rosaria Butterfield, Charles Morris returns to a Christmas special from 2018 where he spends time helping us visualize the full scope of the incarnation — God with us then, God with us now, and God with us in the time to come.
As you prepare your heart to celebrate the Messiah this Christmas, let’s follow the example of the classic Christmas Carol Joy to the World and celebrate Christ’s birth while also looking forward to when Christmas comes again.
