Merry Christmas and be joyful! I went to the church service @ St. Matthias Paddington this morning with other people from the Mandarin Bible Fellowship. Phillip Jensen is giving the message in the service, and it is probably his last sermon here before he moves to the St. Andrews. Ecclesiastes 3:1-15 and Luke 2:1-20 were the Bible passage for today. Instead of being critical about the society failing to acknowledge Christ in Christmas, he urged people to be joyful in this occation. We want to be joyful for the birth of Jesus, be joyful for the coming of the Saviour, and be joyful that the Word has become flesh.
Yes. Christmas is centred around Christ. While the whole world has missed the plot, let us be jouful in this occation for what God has done for the humanity.
