Life has often been compared to a journey. It’s a journey through good times and hard times, seasons and laughter, time with family and friends. We grow older, we visit new places, both physically and metaphorically. Hopefully, we grow wiser.
All journeys ought to begin with preparations. As important as clothes and provisions are, I’m going to argue that the most important item one can bring on a journey is a map (or I guess today that would be a GPS). Without a map, ultimately, you are going nowhere. Unless you are extremely familiar with the terrain, you are going to get lost. This is true in physical journeys and it’s true in the journey of life. If you don’t have a map, you’re going to get lost. Thankfully, God has given us a map for life—it’s His Word.
The Word of God—the Bible—leads us to The Word, Jesus, who “became flesh and made his dwelling among us.” (John 1:14). If we follow the Word—our map—it will lead us to the Word made flesh—and He will ensure that we reach our destination: eternity with the One who loves us.
Today, we’re going to take a journey with the kids of Faith Chapel to that long ago night when the Word became flesh. Enjoy this presentation of Journey to Bethlehem.
