Here is a simple four-point outline for a Christmas sermon or lesson. If it would be helpful to you, please feel free to use without credit. Merry Christmas, everyone.
1) It’s one thing to know about Christ. It’s another thing to pursue Him. (v15) “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass...”
2) Those who pursue Christ will find Him. (v16) “And they came with haste and found... the Babe lying in a manger.”
3) Those who find Christ will tell others. (v17) “they made widely known the saying which was told them concerning this Child.”
