Why we need to stop and think at Christmas

December 1st, 2016

“Christmas comes but once a year” is a common phrase but if you stop and think for a moment it is possible to celebrate Christmas every day.

Christmas, when you consider all that it encompasses, involves love, joy, peace, (often times) longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.

All of these are known as the fruit of the spirit (see Galatians 5:22-23). These are qualities we can express daily towards others by the presence of the Holy Spirit within us.

If you don’t have these qualities you need to come to Metropolitan Baptist Church this Christmas and ask “how can I have real joy, real peace, real love?”

Christmas at Metropolitan Baptist involves Carols in the Park, a traditional Christmas Day service and New Year’s Day Vision Sunday. Don’t miss the opportunity this year!
