My teaching supervisor asked me to teach a lesson on christmas. Their curriculum book has all the trappings and snares that america offers about this day, so I considered and prayed about how to teach about christmas.
Here is what I did: taking apart the word Christ-mas, I was able to teach a nearly full lesson on who Christ Jesus is. I shared the three distinct offices of the Lord Jesus by describing each gift given by the wisemen. I was able to show them He is the centerpiece of all human history! I was also able to share Matthew 1:23, a bit about prophecy and that the wisemen were not at the birth-night of Jesus. I also told them Jesus was a King and not just any King but a king of Love, Peace and Righteousness. 160 students today heard about Jesus. 480 more will hear this message the rest of the week.
Would you pray that the Lord of the harvest would so blow upon their hearts so as to kick up the dirt of sin in their hearts so that they run to the refuge which is Jesus Christ the Lord
