Do you remember as a child what it was like enduring those days before Christmas? It was the anticipation that made Christmas, Christmas.
That same dynamic is what made the first Christmas so extraordinary. For generations, men and women had been waiting anxiously for the birth of their Messiah, with no assurance that they would live to see him. And like us, they probably wondered, Is this really going to happen? After all, God has been silent for years. Has he forgotten about us?
Do you have those same doubts? Do you feel like God even knows you exist? Do you wonder if it’s worth it to follow Christ?
In this 3-part series, Andy Stanley makes the case that the Christmas story is your story. DOWNLOAD ONLY

An angel appearing to a virgin? Angels talking to shepherds? How does a star hover over anything?
