The World

by Chris Russell
Who Needs Christmas week one message from Pastor Chris Russell on December 10, 2017 at Community Church of Waterford, Goshen, Indiana. I don’t know how things are for you as we hit the final two week stretch to Christmas but I know for us we are always wrestling with keeping the right things in focus at this time of the year. We are surrounded by a culture that has a “I want, I want, I want… I must have, I must have, I must have” mentality. What is everybody asking each other right now as they are busy shopping and planning for Christmas? …. “What do you WANT for Christmas.” It’s all about the wants. But thank goodness God is about a much bigger purpose and plan than simply meeting our wants. When He put together the whole story of Christmas His primary goal was not about meeting our wants, it was about taking care of our biggest NEED. It’s not that God isn’t concerned with some of our wants, He often provides those to us, but His biggest focus at Christmas is something much, much more important than our simple wants. Genesis 12:1-3 Malachi 1:11 Galatians 4:4-5 Luke 1:28 Luke 1:31-33 So who needs Christmas? The answer to that question is actually quite simple…. God decided that the WORLD needed Christmas and He would work out the story of Christmas on the world’s stage involving some of the most significant people ever known in history.
