This 'n' That - Christmas Edition

A very merry Christmas to you! I pray this day brings you rest, peace, and an edifying time of meditating upon the glorious truths of our Savior's birth. May you proclaim His gospel with boldness to friends and family who are lost, and may you find sweet comfort and joy in His gracious Word this day.

On a far more trivial note, may your pie crust be flaky, your cookies be sweet, and your cocoa be creamy. And may you enjoy this Christmas-themed week in review (kind of):
  • I love these photos of small churches nestled in perfect, snow-covered scenes.
  • There were many resources made available this year about the virgin birth. One is this important sermon from Pastor Don Green.
  • John MacArthur addresses the virgin birth in his sermon about the mysterious Jesus.
  • Here are some thoughts from J.C. Ryle on thinking reverently about the virgin birth.
  • What was the star of Bethlehem? Ligonier offers its thoughts.
  • Here is your weekly dose of Christmas adorable.
  • Here are some wonderful Old and New Testament parallels that are especially significant at Christmas. 
  • The gospel according to Christmas carols.
  • The peculiar glory of the incarnation.
  • Are you one of those people who gets upset when you see "Xmas" written instead of "Christmas"? Perhaps you should read this and this.
  • Grace Community Church has made the video of their Christmas concert available. It just isn't the Christmas season without this wonderful presentation!
  • You will be encouraged as Pastor Steve Kreloff details the genealogy of our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ:
