In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:1

Most people, during the month of December, begin to think about the wonderful story of Jesus and His birth.  The angels, the shepherds, the Wisemen – they all fill our thoughts and imaginations as we think back to that wonderful time when God sent His son.  But is that really a good place to start?  Is the manger really the beginning of the story of Jesus?  Not at all!  In fact, the story of Jesus begins – in the beginning.  And that is where we will begin this Christmas season.  Not in Nazareth with angelic visit to Mary, not with Joseph and his dreams, and not in the town of Bethlehem.  For if we truly want to understand Jesus and His birth, we must go way back to the very beginning.  Only then we will discover who Jesus really is, and why He came, to both live and die, and why He, and only He, can save us from our sins.
