1. What is the Christmas spirit?
2. Do you have it?
(a) The Christmas spirit is praise and worship of Jesus Christ!! Matt 2:11- when the wise men found Jesus, they bowed and worshiped him. Phil 2:8-11- every one will bow down and call him Lord.
(b) The Christmas Spirit is sharing Jesus Luke 2:17- the shepherds spread the Word about Jesus Acts 8:4- those who have been scattered, preached the Word wherever they went.
(c) The Christmas spirit is about serving and giving. Matt 2:11-The wise men worshiped and gave gifts to baby Jesus Heb 13:16- do good and share with others

to the point of death—

that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
