If you’re the pastor or on the church staff, you carry the role of host at Christmas.
Planning for weeks to share the good news of Jesus’ birth, you can’t wait for the guests to arrive. It’s going to be wonderful. You can hardly wait.
You’ve already had services on Sunday, and Christmas Eve is near – more services!
You’ve invested many weeks designing and communicating the invitation. The worship teams have rehearsed for countless hours. Then, of course, writing the sermon, God’s Word carrying the good news. From the parking lot to the hospitality teams to the children’s ministry and, of course, that special Christmas coffee – there is so much involved.
You are praying and praying for people to respond to the invitation at the end of the service…
The big question in this grand celebration of the birth of the Savior is:
When will you have an opportunity to savor the Savior?
