Louie Giglio: The Twelve Words Of Christmas

Louie Giglio passionately shares the message of grace and truth found in the Christmas story in his message The Twelve Words Of Christmas reminding all of us that even in the chaos of our lives God's promises can bring us through.
One Quiet Night
When AM Radio was first invented all it could do was transmit Morse code. For years captains in the middle of the Atlantic could hear the tap, tap of the code as it came through the radio. Tap, tap, that was all they ever heard. Then, on Christmas Eve 1906 everything changed. Reginald Fessenden-- the man who had invented the radio-- spoke. Alone in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean captains of ships heart a voice, and it spoke the words of Luke chapter 2-- the Christmas story-- the first words ever spoken on the radio. Much like the silence broken on that night in 1906, the tiny cry of a baby boy broke the silence-- hundreds of years of silence-- between God and his people. In The Twelve Words Of Christmas Louie Giglio passionately brings to life the story of Christmas-- a story of God breaking through silence, and darkness, with a baby's cry. Yet, for many God's people, waiting for hundreds of years for God to send their savior, the cry of the baby Jesus simply slipped past their ears. They never imagined their Messiah, the one who would save them, would come in the simple frame of a baby. Yet that baby, announced by twelve words, would become the resounding cry of history and God's plan for redemption. Much like the people of Israel, we to can let the powerful meaning of Christmas slip past our ears, and our hearts. In The Twelve Words Of Christmas Louie Giglio seeks to remind viewers of the immeasurable gift of Christmas. The message of Christmas is not that a baby came, it is that God is with us, God is with us full of grace and truth, God is with us and no one is to far for him to reach, God is with us and his love cannot be stopped, God is with us and even in the midst of chaos and seeming silence he is with us full of his promises to bring us through. The Twelve Words Of Christmas is a reminder that God is with us, God came down to us.
