Having too much eggnog once is a mistake. But as you’ll see in #09 of our countdown, there’s another word for those mistakes we willingly and repeatedly do. And it’s a word that gives us an insight into Christmas.

Every day leading up to Christmas I’ll count down the “25 Things Jesus Says About Christmas” to see how it changes the way you and I celebrate the season when we go straight to the source!

Merry Christmas everybody my name is
Chris Pamela welcome to what Jesus says
about what we’re talking about 25 things
Jesus says about Christmas to see how it
changes the way you and I might
celebrate the season when we go straight
to the source now this time of year have
you ever felt like you were chasing
after the perfect Christmas I know I
have and then all of a sudden you have
this crazy anxiety over silly things
like whether kids smiled in a picture or
whether the present was the wow factor
we were going for or whether Uncle Joe
had you know too much eggnog but number
nine shows us how imperfection is
definitely a part of the season so in
the biographies of Jesus there’s this
account where he says I did not come to
call the righteous but sinners
now you might cringe at the word sin or
sinners and I get that that Christians
have used those terms as weapons for a
long time and I’m sorry about that but
it’s the word Jesus uses because we need
a word to describe those things that are
bigger than a mistake like what do you
call those things that you willingly and
intentionally and knowingly do even
though you don’t want to or even though
that you think that they are wrong like
when a politician gets on the TV and
apologizes for the mistake that they
made with their mistress that’s not a
mistake that that was a decision that
they made a mistake is whoops I forgot
to check the lights before I hung them
up or whoops I put a little bit too much
in this eggnog but for those things that
I willingly knowingly intentionally
repeatedly do I need another word for
that because a mistake doesn’t cut it
and that’s why Jesus uses this word sin
and don’t miss hear him he’s not saying
you’re a sinner because you sin he’s
saying you sin because you’re a sinner
it’s your condition and Jesus is saying
he’s not coming to call those who are
self-righteous he’s coming for those who
recognize and know they’re sinners he
came to sinners he hung out with sinners
he was described as a friend of sinners
sinners like you and sinners like me and
how does this change the way you and I
celebrate the season well recognize that
those who are forgiven the most
celebrate the most
this isn’t all that Jesus says about
Christmas as well we got a playlist over
here of the other 25 things Jesus says
about Christmas go ahead and take a look
also hit like and subscribe thanks so
much and we’ll see you soon mmm
delicious

Merry Christmas everybody my name is
crisp Avila and we’re counting down with
the 25 things Jesus says about Christmas
to see how it changes the way you and I
celebrate the season when we go straight
to the source now number 18 comes to us
when Jesus and his students are walking
past a blind man and right before he
heals him Jesus turns to his students
and tells them as long as it is day we
must do the works of him who sent me
now just to unpack this a little bit
think about the gods of the ancient
world and like Greek or Roman mythology
they didn’t work they sat in the clouds
eating grapes far above human strife and
so imagine how strange it sounded to the
first century audience to hear that God
would come in the flesh to work so how
does this change the way that you and I
celebrate the season well as we start
Christmas break here or is your fourth
quarter wraps up or as your finals are
over and you finally find yourself
relaxing with your slippers on and
you’ve got some hot chocolate and your
feet are pointed at a roaring fire when
you do that you’re actually in the
perfect posture to celebrate the season
because according to Jesus he came to
work and do a work that you and I
couldn’t do according to Jesus you and I
are powerless against the reign of sin
and death you and I are powerless to do
anything about it and so our job is to
simply rest now this is the only thing
that Jesus says about Christmas is just
so happens I’ve got a playlist right
over here of the other 25 things Jesus
says about Christmas I would be honored
if you would take a look at that and
also hit like and subscribe thanks so
much Merry Christmas
