The last time I had the opportunity to preach on this portion of God’s Word was three years ago. It was the Christmas of 2012, a Christmas I’ll never forget. Perhaps you remember it for another reason—I’m pretty sure you had nearly 2 feet of snow and blizzard-like conditions right before Christmas. Anyhow, for me, what made the Christmas of 2012 so memorable is that I was so sick. I came down with a horrible case of bronchitis, right before Christmas. I was barely able to preach.
