The Christmas story is one that is familiar to most all of us. From The Peanuts Christmas to Grandma’s nativity scene on the mantel, we’ve heard of Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, and everyone else every year for our whole life. Yet what’s so great about these characters?
In reality, it is an unlikely group of protagonists that make up the Christmas story. In fact, the ultimate hero of the Christmas Story (spoiler alert, it’s Jesus) is the most unlikely. You would never pick this guy, from this family, in this situation, in this moment of time, to save anyone – let alone to be the promised Messiah.
Throughout the month of December we will be taking a look at the characters of the Christmas story and how God uses ordinary people in extraordinary ways to bring about His sovereign plan of saving the world.
