Fables, Stables, & Tables

Christmas 2023


December 31, 2023 • Pastor Paul Smith • Matthew 2:1–12

In the final message of our Christmas series we look at the story of the Magi (Wise Men) who came to visit Jesus. These late arrivals to Jesus birth are connected to an Old Testament story of unplanned plans of God to bring about what He desires in the world and teach us the importance of counting up to preparations and gifts for the holiday season.

No matter what kid of "day" you are in, the Christmas story shows us that we can have supernatural joy.
