Book Recommendation: Christmas Playlist

Once December comes around it is easy to be captivated by holiday decorations and twinkling lights, Santa Claus sightings, Christmas trees, and Christmas presents. However, according to the Bible, these things actually have nothing to do with the true meaning of Christmas. If we took them all away, we would still have Christmas. Why? Because Christmas is really all about the person and work of Jesus.

In Pastor Alistair Begg’s new book, Christmas Playlist: Four Songs that Bring You to the Heart of Christmas , we learn about the true meaning of Christmas through four songs presented in the Gospel of Luke. Each of these songs answers four questions:

  • What is God like?
  • Why do you need God?
  • How did God come?
    and,
  • How did God do it?
Throughout these songs, the “beats” of the “gospel drum” rise to a crescendo causing us to come face to face with the question, “Is this really what Christmas is about?” If it is, then the skeptic should question their skepticism; the unbeliever should consider what it would mean to believe; the new believer should grow more confident in their faith; and, the seasoned believer should be reminded of the glory of the true meaning of Christmas. With a clear presentation of Jesus and the gospel, this brief and accessible book can help put our hearts in tune with what the Bible teaches us is the true meaning of Christmas.

You can pick up your copy of Christmas Playlist at Books by the Park. For more book recommendations to help you grow your personal library, please visit our website .

-Pastor Nick Spurgeon

Q47. Does the Lord’s Supper add anything to Christ’s atoning work? (1 Peter 3:18)

Answer: No, Christ died once for all. The Lord’s Supper is a covenant meal celebrating Christ’s atoning work; as it is also a means of strengthening our faith as we look to him, and a foretaste of the future feast. But those who take part with unrepentant hearts eat and drink judgment on themselves.

Q46. What is the Lord’s Supper? (1 Corinthians 11:23–26)

Answer: Christ commanded all Christians to eat bread and to drink from the cup in thankful remembrance of him and his death. The Lord’s Supper is a celebration of the presence of God in our midst; bringing us into communion with God and with one another; feeding and nourishing our souls. It also anticipates the day when we will eat and drink with Christ in his Father’s kingdom.

Missionaries: Jeffrey & Katherine Robinson in Leipzig, Germany
Pray for them as they seek to find balance between their responsibilities in Germany and their personal needs in the U.S.  The refugee crisis continues to challenge the people of Germany. Recently a man, presumably with ISIS, planned an attack in Berlin. He escaped arrest and fled to Leipzig. Three Syrian men took him in. When they discovered he was a fugitive, they called police who arrested him. The story ends tragically as the arrested man committed suicide in the Leipzig jail. This case has polarized the city. Pray for the Christians to continue to “love their enemy,” despite the risks, and to be light and salt in the midst of tension and fear.
