The true spirit of Christmas is found when you serve others.
It feels like Christmas. There is such a stirring of excitement racing through my soul. Tonight a big group of friends will hit the streets to bless others. We’ve prepared and now to see . . .
As a cold weather has settled in hopefully, Christmas on the Streets, is happening at just the right moment. We will load up trucks of jackets, blankets, and warm socks (in case you didn’t know socks are priceless to the homeless.) We have the spot picked out and anticipation is building.
Tonight just might be Christmas.
We’ll gather the community around with a band. The music of Christmas cheer and worship will resound on the streets. We’ll serve a meal and hot chocolate, while Santa passes out gifts. And this beautiful community will linger in the presence of something grand and miraculous.
We’ll look each one in the eye. We’ll let them know we see them and we care. We’ll pray. We’ll thank them for letting us be part of their lives for the past year.
And we’ll see the true meaning of Christmas acted out right before our eyes. We’ll see those who are down be lifted up, even if but for a brief moment.
Another night on the streets.
There was a special night when there was no room for a baby to be born and a mom had to birth her special baby on the streets, in a manger. Miracles happened then. And miracles still happen today as . . .
Our King didn’t come to impress us, but to live among us — the lowly. [tweet that]

Hallelujah, the infant lowly came for . . .
Oh yes, He came for me and you!
How are you witnessing Christmas miracles this season? Do you have one to share?
