The Manger And The Sword Part 1
December 26, 2018
Part 1 of 2
While Christians can now enjoy the benefits of the Savior’s birth, life, death and resurrection, there was one person who felt great pain when He came. In this message, we seek to understand the real cost of Christmas to the mother who later had to watch her son be put to death.
We usually identify the blessings of God with comfort. But often, the blessings come wrapped with great burdens and pain. Mary was honored by being the one to bear the Messiah, yet with that honor came perplexity, shame, and anguish. She was pregnant before she married Joseph, they had to live as exiles in Egypt shortly after Jesus was born, then she had to watch Him die a horrific death on the cross.
