  • Man, he loves it, he gets into the lights.
  • 00:19:36.280 --> 00:19:40.070
  • Matter of fact, my father's the biggest fan of Santa Claus.
  • 00:19:40.080 --> 00:19:44.130
  • Santa Claus, he would leave out milk and cookies.
  • 00:19:44.140 --> 00:19:46.270

  • I kind of break it up a little bit.

  • So, I wrote letters to Santa, but I made them more personal.
  • 00:19:55.040 --> 00:19:58.240
  • I used Santa's nicknames.
  • 00:19:58.250 --> 00:20:01.250

  • 00:20:23.220 --> 00:20:27.210
  • I'm like, "Who you the boss of, yourself?"
  • 00:20:27.220 --> 00:20:31.090
  • Yo, but I think Southern white dudes
  • 00:20:31.100 --> 00:20:32.260
  • have the coolest nicknames,
  • 00:20:32.270 --> 00:20:34.080
  • I really do, 'cause their nicknames

  • go with them their entire life.
  • 00:20:36.060 --> 00:20:39.040
  • They have nicknames like Rusty, Skip, Chip.
  • 00:20:39.050 --> 00:20:46.080
  • Your nickname could be Chip, you could be the CEO of a bank.
  • 00:20:46.090 --> 00:20:52.170
  • You could have Chip on your business cards.

  • Pookie can't be a branch manager at the bank.
  • 00:21:01.280 --> 00:21:05.040
  • You don't trust your money with Pookie.

  • he's simple 'cause my son loves football.

  • I said, "Hey man, what you so excited about?"
  • 00:22:03.200 --> 00:22:08.000
  • My son was like, "Dad, coach said that whenever we tie,
  • 00:22:08.010 --> 00:22:11.070

  • 00:31:28.030 --> 00:31:32.150
  • is the tradition that we have in my family,
  • 00:31:32.160 --> 00:31:35.010
  • where we go to my grandparents house.
  • 00:31:35.020 --> 00:31:36.260
  • And before we have dinner together,
  • 00:31:36.270 --> 00:31:38.190
  • before we do anything else, we all sit down,
  • 00:31:38.200 --> 00:31:41.220
  • and my aunt brings out these little red booklets
  • 00:31:41.230 --> 00:31:44.260
  • full of lyrics of all the Christmas carols.
  • 00:31:44.270 --> 00:31:48.200
  • And we sit together and we sing.
  • 00:31:48.210 --> 00:31:52.220
  • And it reminds me every year
  • 00:31:52.230 --> 00:31:54.100
  • that we all come from different places,
  • 00:31:54.110 --> 00:31:57.110
  • we come from different walks of life,
  • 00:31:57.120 --> 00:31:59.250
  • we have different backgrounds,
  • 00:31:59.260 --> 00:32:01.280
  • and not a single one of us is the same.
  • 00:32:01.290 --> 00:32:05.050
  • And yet God, in his infinite wisdom,
  • 00:32:05.060 --> 00:32:08.210
  • put something within all of us when he gave us a voice.
  • 00:32:08.220 --> 00:32:14.050
  • Even people who don't necessarily have a voice
  • 00:32:14.060 --> 00:32:17.100
  • to be able to speak out loud still have something to say,
  • 00:32:17.110 --> 00:32:20.150
  • and that truly is a gift from God.
  • 00:32:20.160 --> 00:32:24.050
  • Of course it rings true at Christmastime,
  • 00:32:24.060 --> 00:32:26.050
  • but always, always it's amazing that we can walk around
  • 00:32:26.060 --> 00:32:32.020
  • and have this gift within us.
  • 00:32:32.030 --> 00:32:33.250
  • That at any moment, we can open our mouths
  • 00:32:33.260 --> 00:32:36.090
  • and we can create beauty, we can speak life.
  • 00:32:36.100 --> 00:32:40.260

  • 00:32:40.270 --> 00:32:43.200

  • that one life can make, and he becomes a new man.
  • 00:38:13.120 --> 00:38:19.080
  • What if we were to take this same thought
  • 00:38:19.090 --> 00:38:22.020
  • and apply it to the Christ of Christmas?
  • 00:38:22.030 --> 00:38:26.020
  • What if Christ had not been born?
  • 00:38:26.030 --> 00:38:30.060
  • What would our world be like if no angel had appeared
  • 00:38:30.070 --> 00:38:34.010
  • to a Jewish maiden with the news that she was chosen
  • 00:38:34.020 --> 00:38:37.260
  • to be the mother of the Messiah?
  • 00:38:37.270 --> 00:38:41.010
  • What would our world be like
  • 00:38:41.020 --> 00:38:43.210
  • if no angels appeared to the shepherds
  • 00:38:43.220 --> 00:38:46.120
  • on the hillside outside of Bethlehem,
  • 00:38:46.130 --> 00:38:49.220
  • telling them that a Savior was born?
  • 00:38:49.230 --> 00:38:53.140
  • What if there was no Bethlehem,
  • 00:38:53.150 --> 00:38:56.120
  • no Bethlehem inn where the weary couple
  • 00:38:56.130 --> 00:38:58.160
  • lodged for the night of the baby's birth?
  • 00:38:58.170 --> 00:39:02.120
  • What if there never were any wise men?
  • 00:39:02.130 --> 00:39:06.120
  • What if there never was a miraculous child
  • 00:39:06.130 --> 00:39:09.080
  • born to a couple named Joseph and Mary?
  • 00:39:09.090 --> 00:39:13.010
  • What if Jesus had not come?
  • 00:39:13.020 --> 00:39:17.130
  • When we contemplate the implications of such a thought,
  • 00:39:17.140 --> 00:39:22.160
  • we begin to see this season of celebration
  • 00:39:22.170 --> 00:39:26.020
  • in a brand new light.
  • 00:39:26.030 --> 00:39:29.010
  • For if there were no Christmas, we could not know God.
  • 00:39:29.020 --> 00:39:34.230
  • Jesus was born into humanity to show us that God
  • 00:39:34.240 --> 00:39:37.230
  • was not merely a principle, but a person.
  • 00:39:37.240 --> 00:39:40.240
  • Jesus was not an idea of God, not a picture of God.
  • 00:39:40.250 --> 00:39:44.160
  • Jesus was God himself in human form.
  • 00:39:44.170 --> 00:39:47.290
  • If Jesus had not come to this earth,
  • 00:39:48.000 --> 00:39:50.120
  • we could not have a correct understanding of God.
  • 00:39:50.130 --> 00:39:54.260
  • We could not know what God is like
  • 00:39:54.270 --> 00:39:56.280
  • if he had not sent his Son to reveal himself to us.
  • 00:39:56.290 --> 00:40:01.130
  • One day, Jesus was talking to his friend Philip.
  • 00:40:01.140 --> 00:40:05.040
  • And Philip said to Jesus, "Lord, show us the Father,
  • 00:40:05.270 --> 00:40:09.190
  • or show us God,
  • 00:40:09.200 --> 00:40:12.000
  • and it will be sufficient for us."
  • 00:40:12.010 --> 00:40:15.030
  • And Jesus said to Philip,
  • 00:40:15.040 --> 00:40:16.290
  • "Philip, have I been with you so long,
  • 00:40:17.000 --> 00:40:20.070
  • and yet you have not known me?
  • 00:40:20.080 --> 00:40:23.020
  • He who has seen me, Philip, has seen the Father."
  • 00:40:23.030 --> 00:40:27.200
  • God gave us his Son, and then his Son gave us God.
  • 00:40:27.210 --> 00:40:34.030
  • If there is no Christmas, we cannot know God.
  • 00:40:34.040 --> 00:40:37.190
  • And if there is no Christmas, we cannot be forgiven.
  • 00:40:37.200 --> 00:40:41.080
  • If Christ had not been born,
  • 00:40:41.090 --> 00:40:43.250
  • we could not be forgiven of our sins.
  • 00:40:43.260 --> 00:40:47.050
  • In one of the early announcements of Jesus's birth,
  • 00:40:47.060 --> 00:40:49.190
  • we are told, "And she will bring forth a Son,
  • 00:40:49.200 --> 00:40:53.210
  • and you shall call his name Jesus,
  • 00:40:53.220 --> 00:40:56.080
  • for he will save his people from their sins."
  • 00:40:56.090 --> 00:40:59.220
  • If Jesus had not come into the world,
  • 00:40:59.230 --> 00:41:01.260
  • there would not be such a thing as forgiveness of sins.
  • 00:41:01.270 --> 00:41:05.230
  • If Christ had not come,
  • 00:41:05.240 --> 00:41:07.190
  • the course of humanity would be one long downward trudge
  • 00:41:07.200 --> 00:41:11.050
  • toward the eternal night of despair.
  • 00:41:11.060 --> 00:41:14.160
  • If Christ had not come, we could not be forgiven,
  • 00:41:14.170 --> 00:41:18.090
  • and we would still be in our sins.
  • 00:41:18.100 --> 00:41:21.050
  • And if there is no Christmas, we cannot be understood.
  • 00:41:22.090 --> 00:41:26.210
  • In Hebrews chapter 4, we read these wonderful words,
  • 00:41:26.220 --> 00:41:31.080
  • "For we do not have a high priest
  • 00:41:31.090 --> 00:41:33.030
  • who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses,
  • 00:41:33.040 --> 00:41:36.250
  • but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin."
  • 00:41:36.260 --> 00:41:41.180
  • This is referring to Christ.
  • 00:41:41.190 --> 00:41:43.290
  • "Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace,
  • 00:41:44.000 --> 00:41:47.060
  • that we may obtain mercy and find grace
  • 00:41:47.070 --> 00:41:49.230
  • to help in the time of need."
  • 00:41:49.240 --> 00:41:53.000
  • Here, the humanity of Jesus is linked to his ability
  • 00:41:53.010 --> 00:41:57.010
  • to understand where we are,
  • 00:41:57.020 --> 00:41:59.220
  • to sympathize in our troubles and infirmities,
  • 00:41:59.230 --> 00:42:02.250
  • to understand us when we pray.
  • 00:42:02.260 --> 00:42:05.220
  • When Jesus went back to heaven
  • 00:42:05.230 --> 00:42:07.130
  • after his ministry on this earth,
  • 00:42:07.140 --> 00:42:09.160
  • he did not lay aside his humanity,
  • 00:42:09.170 --> 00:42:12.020
  • but he lives on in his resurrected body.
  • 00:42:12.030 --> 00:42:15.040
  • And because he became one of us,
  • 00:42:15.050 --> 00:42:17.210
  • he can understand us when we pray.
  • 00:42:17.220 --> 00:42:21.060
  • Jesus came into this world knowing what it would cost him.
  • 00:42:21.070 --> 00:42:24.180
  • He bore in his body the marks of evil
  • 00:42:24.190 --> 00:42:27.210
  • that we might be pure.
  • 00:42:27.220 --> 00:42:29.160
  • He bore in his sinless soul the weight of sin
  • 00:42:29.170 --> 00:42:32.260
  • so that we could be forgiven.
  • 00:42:32.270 --> 00:42:35.090
  • He bore in his manly frame the hurt and pain of injustice
  • 00:42:35.100 --> 00:42:40.050
  • that we might be understood.
  • 00:42:40.060 --> 00:42:43.060
  • And we do not pray to one who cannot understand
  • 00:42:43.070 --> 00:42:45.220
  • the feelings of our infirmities.
  • 00:42:45.230 --> 00:42:48.120
  • He has lived where we live. He has been where we are.
  • 00:42:48.130 --> 00:42:52.180
  • He has felt what we feel.
  • 00:42:52.190 --> 00:42:55.280
  • Dr. Maxwell Maltz tells a remarkable story
  • 00:42:55.290 --> 00:43:00.110
  • about a man who had been injured in a fire while attempting
  • 00:43:00.120 --> 00:43:03.160
  • to save his parents from a burning house.
  • 00:43:03.170 --> 00:43:06.270
  • He couldn't get to them. They perished.
  • 00:43:06.280 --> 00:43:10.270
  • His face was burned and disfigured,
  • 00:43:10.280 --> 00:43:13.230
  • and he mistakenly interpreted his pain as God's punishment,
  • 00:43:13.240 --> 00:43:17.270
  • and he would not let anyone see him,
  • 00:43:17.280 --> 00:43:20.270
  • not even his wife.
  • 00:43:20.280 --> 00:43:23.140
  • She went to Dr. Maltz, a plastic surgeon, for help.
  • 00:43:23.150 --> 00:43:27.170
  • He told the woman not to worry, "I can restore his face."
  • 00:43:27.180 --> 00:43:31.290
  • The wife was unenthused.
  • 00:43:32.000 --> 00:43:33.280
  • Her husband had repeatedly refused any help.
  • 00:43:33.290 --> 00:43:36.230
  • She knew he would again. Then why her visit?
  • 00:43:36.240 --> 00:43:41.140
  • She said, "I want you to disfigure my face
  • 00:43:41.150 --> 00:43:45.100
  • so that I can be like him.
  • 00:43:45.110 --> 00:43:48.050
  • If I can share in his pain,
  • 00:43:48.060 --> 00:43:50.200
  • then maybe he will let me back into his life."
  • 00:43:50.210 --> 00:43:54.140
  • Dr. Maltz was shocked.
  • 00:43:54.150 --> 00:43:56.240
  • He denied her request, obviously,
  • 00:43:56.250 --> 00:43:58.210
  • but was so moved by this woman's love
  • 00:43:58.220 --> 00:44:01.190
  • that he went to speak with her husband.
  • 00:44:01.200 --> 00:44:04.040
  • Knocking on the man's bedroom door,
  • 00:44:04.050 --> 00:44:06.110
  • he called loudly, "I am a plastic surgeon,
  • 00:44:06.120 --> 00:44:09.240
  • and I want you to know that I can restore your face."
  • 00:44:09.250 --> 00:44:13.110
  • No response.
  • 00:44:13.120 --> 00:44:15.010
  • "Please come out."
  • 00:44:15.020 --> 00:44:17.010
  • Again there was no answer.
  • 00:44:17.020 --> 00:44:19.160
  • Still speaking through the door,
  • 00:44:19.170 --> 00:44:22.000
  • Dr. Maltz told the man of his wife's proposal.
  • 00:44:22.010 --> 00:44:25.160
  • "She wants me to disfigure her face
  • 00:44:25.170 --> 00:44:28.120
  • to make her face like yours
  • 00:44:28.130 --> 00:44:30.180
  • in the hope that you will let her back into your life.
  • 00:44:30.190 --> 00:44:34.140
  • That's how much she loves you."
  • 00:44:34.150 --> 00:44:37.180
  • There was a brief moment of silence,
  • 00:44:37.190 --> 00:44:39.170
  • and then ever so slowly, the doorknob began to turn.
  • 00:44:39.180 --> 00:44:45.130
  • The way that woman felt about her husband
  • 00:44:45.140 --> 00:44:48.060
  • is the way God feels about us.
  • 00:44:48.070 --> 00:44:51.100
  • But he did more than make the offer.
  • 00:44:51.110 --> 00:44:53.260
  • He took on our face, our disfigurement.
  • 00:44:53.270 --> 00:44:56.260
  • He became a man so that God would become touchable
  • 00:44:56.270 --> 00:45:00.040
  • and approachable and reachable.
  • 00:45:00.050 --> 00:45:02.090
  • He is Emmanuel, God with us.
  • 00:45:02.100 --> 00:45:05.080
  • And for all of us,
  • 00:45:05.090 --> 00:45:06.250
  • that will be a useful thought during these next few days.
  • 00:45:06.260 --> 00:45:11.240
  • So, if there is no Christmas, we cannot know God.
  • 00:45:11.250 --> 00:45:16.150
  • If there is no Christmas, we cannot be forgiven.
  • 00:45:16.160 --> 00:45:20.040
  • If there is no Christmas, we cannot be understood.
  • 00:45:20.050 --> 00:45:23.260
  • And if there is no Christmas, we cannot have hope.
  • 00:45:23.270 --> 00:45:28.100
  • Jesus came to this earth at exactly the right time.
  • 00:45:28.110 --> 00:45:32.120
  • In a world ruled by the sword,
  • 00:45:32.130 --> 00:45:34.280
  • this teacher spoke of perfect peace.
  • 00:45:34.290 --> 00:45:38.060
  • In a world of violence and retribution,
  • 00:45:38.070 --> 00:45:40.240
  • he spoke of loving your enemy.
  • 00:45:40.250 --> 00:45:43.160
  • In a world of death, he offered hope of life
  • 00:45:43.170 --> 00:45:46.250
  • for now and for beyond the grave.
  • 00:45:46.260 --> 00:45:50.030
  • The Romans dominated through the power of terror,
  • 00:45:50.040 --> 00:45:53.040
  • lifting a high cross
  • 00:45:53.050 --> 00:45:55.010
  • that performed its deadly task with unimaginable pain.
  • 00:45:55.020 --> 00:45:59.150
  • Jesus accepted that cross, submitted himself to it,
  • 00:45:59.160 --> 00:46:03.290
  • and lifted it high as a bridge
  • 00:46:04.000 --> 00:46:06.180
  • from the grief of earth to the joy of heaven.
  • 00:46:06.190 --> 00:46:10.130
  • And that bridge he made clear is available
  • 00:46:10.140 --> 00:46:13.020
  • even to those who do not believe that he exists.
  • 00:46:13.030 --> 00:46:17.290
  • In just a few days, it will be Christmas,
  • 00:46:18.000 --> 00:46:21.080
  • and something incredible will happen.
  • 00:46:21.090 --> 00:46:24.130
  • Every store in America will close.
  • 00:46:24.140 --> 00:46:27.290
  • Only emergency workers will be at work.
  • 00:46:28.000 --> 00:46:31.200
  • Families with small children will get up earlier
  • 00:46:31.210 --> 00:46:33.250
  • than on any other day of the year.
  • 00:46:33.260 --> 00:46:37.040
  • The streets and the freeways will be empty.
  • 00:46:37.050 --> 00:46:40.080
  • And over $730 billion worth of gifts will be exchanged.
  • 00:46:40.090 --> 00:46:46.280
  • All of this is explained by something that happened
  • 00:46:46.290 --> 00:46:50.170
  • 2.000 years ago in an obscure place
  • 00:46:50.180 --> 00:46:54.000
  • which is described in the Bible
  • 00:46:54.010 --> 00:46:56.030
  • as "little among the thousands of Judah."
  • 00:46:56.040 --> 00:47:00.150
  • Whatever you may think about Christmas,
  • 00:47:00.160 --> 00:47:03.030
  • you have to admit that is an amazing story.
  • 00:47:03.040 --> 00:47:06.160
  • Even people who don't claim to believe in God
  • 00:47:06.170 --> 00:47:09.170
  • will celebrate an event that happened
  • 00:47:09.180 --> 00:47:11.230
  • as described in Luke 2:7,
  • 00:47:11.240 --> 00:47:14.080
  • when Mary brought forth her first child
  • 00:47:14.090 --> 00:47:17.120
  • and laid him in a manger.
  • 00:47:17.130 --> 00:47:20.180
  • The obscure birth of this peasant child,
  • 00:47:20.190 --> 00:47:25.000
  • seemingly insignificant in its time,
  • 00:47:25.010 --> 00:47:27.260
  • reaches across the years to demand our attention.
  • 00:47:27.270 --> 00:47:31.110
  • It suggests importance not just for those
  • 00:47:31.120 --> 00:47:33.250
  • who were involved in the events, but for all of the rest of us,
  • 00:47:33.260 --> 00:47:37.210
  • even from a distance of 20 centuries.
  • 00:47:37.220 --> 00:47:40.080
  • The story of Jesus is ultimately not a narrative
  • 00:47:41.210 --> 00:47:44.290
  • about its own time, but about all time.
  • 00:47:45.000 --> 00:47:49.090
  • It is not simply about Mary, Joseph, and the others.
  • 00:47:49.100 --> 00:47:52.230
  • It concerns us just as we had stood
  • 00:47:52.240 --> 00:47:55.210
  • beside those shepherds that night,
  • 00:47:55.220 --> 00:47:58.050
  • knelt by the manger,
  • 00:47:58.060 --> 00:48:00.090
  • and marveled at the newborn child.
  • 00:48:00.100 --> 00:48:03.270
  • Our response to what he has done must be clear.
  • 00:48:03.280 --> 00:48:08.260
  • He has offered us this gift, and the question is,
  • 00:48:08.270 --> 00:48:11.260
  • have we received it?
  • 00:48:11.270 --> 00:48:13.290
  • We must believe in him
  • 00:48:14.000 --> 00:48:15.090
  • because he invites us to a life that makes sense.
  • 00:48:15.100 --> 00:48:18.100
  • We must believe in him because he alone can forgive our sin.
  • 00:48:18.110 --> 00:48:23.010
  • We must believe in him because, as he said,
  • 00:48:23.020 --> 00:48:25.240
  • he is the only way to the Father.
  • 00:48:25.250 --> 00:48:28.140
  • He came, as we celebrate at this season of the year,
  • 00:48:28.150 --> 00:48:32.060
  • to offer us hope in the midst of a hopeless world.
  • 00:48:32.070 --> 00:48:36.160
  • Christina wanted to leave her poor Brazilian neighborhood.
  • 00:48:38.110 --> 00:48:44.010
  • She wanted to see the world.
  • 00:48:44.020 --> 00:48:46.020
  • Discontent with a home having only a pallet on the floor,
  • 00:48:46.030 --> 00:48:49.230
  • a washbasin, and a wood burning stove,
  • 00:48:49.240 --> 00:48:54.010
  • she dreamed of a better life in the city.
  • 00:48:54.020 --> 00:48:57.270
  • And one morning, she slipped away,
  • 00:48:57.280 --> 00:49:02.140
  • breaking her mother's heart.
  • 00:49:02.150 --> 00:49:05.220
  • Knowing what life on the streets would be like
  • 00:49:05.230 --> 00:49:07.240
  • for her young attractive daughter,
  • 00:49:07.250 --> 00:49:10.050
  • Maria hurriedly packed to go find her.
  • 00:49:10.060 --> 00:49:13.290
  • On her way to the bus stop, she entered a drugstore
  • 00:49:14.000 --> 00:49:16.180
  • to get one last thing, pictures.
  • 00:49:16.190 --> 00:49:19.200
  • That's right, she sat in the photograph booth,
  • 00:49:19.210 --> 00:49:21.260
  • closed the curtain,
  • 00:49:21.270 --> 00:49:23.060
  • and spent all the money she had on pictures of herself.
  • 00:49:23.070 --> 00:49:27.040
  • And with her purse full of small black and white pictures,
  • 00:49:27.050 --> 00:49:30.080
  • she boarded the next bus to Rio de Janeiro.
  • 00:49:30.090 --> 00:49:34.140
  • Maria knew Christina had no way of earning money.
  • 00:49:34.150 --> 00:49:38.040
  • She also knew that her daughter was too stubborn to give up.
  • 00:49:38.050 --> 00:49:42.140
  • And when pride meets hunger,
  • 00:49:42.150 --> 00:49:44.060
  • a human will do things that were before unthinkable.
  • 00:49:44.070 --> 00:49:48.100
  • Knowing this, Maria began her search:
  • 00:49:48.110 --> 00:49:51.240
  • bars, hotels, nightclubs,
  • 00:49:51.250 --> 00:49:54.040
  • anyplace with the reputation for streetwalkers or prostitutes.
  • 00:49:54.050 --> 00:49:59.090
  • She went to them all.
  • 00:49:59.100 --> 00:50:01.110
  • And at each place,
  • 00:50:01.120 --> 00:50:02.230
  • she left her picture taped on a bathroom mirror,
  • 00:50:02.240 --> 00:50:06.210
  • tacked to a hotel bulletin board,
  • 00:50:06.220 --> 00:50:09.060
  • fastened to a corner phone booth.
  • 00:50:09.070 --> 00:50:12.040
  • And on the back of each photo, she wrote a note.
  • 00:50:12.050 --> 00:50:15.160
  • It wasn't long before both the money
  • 00:50:15.170 --> 00:50:17.180
  • and the pictures ran out, and Maria had to go home.
  • 00:50:17.190 --> 00:50:22.060
  • The weary mother wept as the bus began its long journey
  • 00:50:22.070 --> 00:50:25.150
  • back to her small village.
  • 00:50:25.160 --> 00:50:28.090
  • It was just a few weeks later that young Christina
  • 00:50:28.100 --> 00:50:30.270
  • descended the hotel stairs.
  • 00:50:30.280 --> 00:50:33.130
  • Her young face was tired, her brown eyes no longer danced.
  • 00:50:33.140 --> 00:50:37.200
  • Her face spoke of pain and fear.
  • 00:50:38.080 --> 00:50:41.200
  • Her laughter was broken,
  • 00:50:41.210 --> 00:50:43.140
  • her dream had become a nightmare.
  • 00:50:43.150 --> 00:50:45.190
  • A thousand times over,
  • 00:50:45.200 --> 00:50:47.210
  • she had longed to trade these countless beds
  • 00:50:47.220 --> 00:50:50.190
  • for her secure pallet, yet the little village
  • 00:50:50.200 --> 00:50:54.040
  • was in too many ways just too far away.
  • 00:50:54.050 --> 00:50:58.020
  • It seemed all hope was gone.
  • 00:50:58.030 --> 00:51:01.120
  • Then one day, as she reached the bottom of the stairs
  • 00:51:01.130 --> 00:51:04.120
  • of yet another hotel,
  • 00:51:04.130 --> 00:51:06.260
  • her eyes noticed a familiar face.
  • 00:51:06.270 --> 00:51:09.290
  • She looked again, and there on the lobby mirror
  • 00:51:10.000 --> 00:51:12.190
  • was a small picture of her mother.
  • 00:51:12.200 --> 00:51:15.130
  • Christina's eyes burned and her throat tightened
  • 00:51:15.140 --> 00:51:18.100
  • as she walked across the room and removed the small photo.
  • 00:51:18.110 --> 00:51:23.010
  • Written on the back was the compelling invitation,
  • 00:51:24.020 --> 00:51:29.100
  • "Whatever you have done, wherever you have been,
  • 00:51:29.110 --> 00:51:33.290
  • whatever you have become, it doesn't matter.
  • 00:51:34.000 --> 00:51:37.250
  • Please come home."
  • 00:51:37.260 --> 00:51:40.280
  • And she did.
  • 00:51:40.290 --> 00:51:43.240
  • And God the Father has sent his own Son
  • 00:51:43.250 --> 00:51:47.010
  • to our world with the same message.
  • 00:51:47.020 --> 00:51:50.040
  • Whatever you have done,
  • 00:51:50.050 --> 00:51:52.180
  • no matter how far away from God you may think yourself to be,
  • 00:51:52.190 --> 00:51:57.000
  • it doesn't matter.
  • 00:51:57.010 --> 00:51:59.000
  • God has made his forgiveness available to you,
  • 00:51:59.010 --> 00:52:02.010
  • and he is standing with his arms open wide to receive you.
  • 00:52:02.020 --> 00:52:06.110
  • This Christmas, isn't it time for you to come home?
  • 00:52:06.120 --> 00:52:12.070
  • 00:52:12.250 --> 00:52:15.280
  • O holy night
  • 00:52:15.290 --> 00:52:19.250
  • the stars are brightly shining
  • 00:52:19.260 --> 00:52:25.050
  • It is the night of our dear Savior's birth
  • 00:52:25.060 --> 00:52:33.060
  • Long lay the world in sin and error pining
  • 00:52:35.060 --> 00:52:44.190
  • till he appeared and the soul felt its worth
  • 00:52:44.200 --> 00:52:52.150
  • A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
  • 00:52:54.090 --> 00:53:02.290
  • for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn
  • 00:53:03.000 --> 00:53:11.070
  • Fall on your knees
  • 00:53:11.200 --> 00:53:20.030
  • O hear the angel voices
  • 00:53:20.040 --> 00:53:28.100
  • O night divine
  • 00:53:28.110 --> 00:53:36.110
  • O night when Christ was born
  • 00:53:36.120 --> 00:53:43.290
  • O night divine
  • 00:53:45.000 --> 00:53:53.210
  • O night
  • 00:53:53.220 --> 00:53:58.070
  • O night divine
  • 00:53:58.080 --> 00:54:02.010
  • Truly he taught us to love one another
  • 00:54:02.020 --> 00:54:11.080
  • His law is love and his gospel is peace
  • 00:54:11.090 --> 00:54:19.060
  • Chains shall he break, for the slave is our brother
  • 00:54:20.290 --> 00:54:30.120
  • And in His name, all oppression shall cease
  • 00:54:30.130 --> 00:54:39.040
  • Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we
  • 00:54:40.000 --> 00:54:48.140
  • Let all within us praise his holy name
  • 00:54:48.150 --> 00:54:57.130
  • Christ is the Lord
  • 00:54:57.140 --> 00:55:05.160
  • His name forever praise we
  • 00:55:05.170 --> 00:55:14.010
  • His power and glory
  • 00:55:14.020 --> 00:55:23.140
  • evermore proclaim

  • His power and glory

  • evermore proclaim
  • 00:55:41.060 --> 00:55:47.120
  • Fall on your knees
  • 00:55:49.000 --> 00:55:57.120
  • O hear the angel voices
  • 00:55:57.130 --> 00:56:05.110
