Merry Christmas to everybody! How are you guys doing? Anybody here into Instagram? Anybody here, you guys do Instagram? Yeah, a lot of people do. Some are going, what? Insta-what? Instagram. It’s a social network of about 100 million people. You take a picture, boom! Like an instant. Bam! You take a picture, you post it for the world to see. It’s fast and that’s cool, we like things fast. It’s free. Free-ninety-nine. Anybody can do it, even a technoidiot like me can do it. And on top of that it’s simple. It really is. A couple of taps on the screen and you’ve got it. I thought I’d just do a quick Instagram photo of maybe some people right here. Who would like to do a photo with me? How you doing? What’s your name? (Teresa) Hi Teresa, where are you from? (Carrolton) Carrolton! I like Carrolton. And you are? (I’m her better half.) You’re her better half. Tell me your name, sir. (Frank Chumley). Frank, nice to see you. OK, let me show you. I hope I can do this under pressure. This is under pressure. Now this is my Instagram account right there. OK, they call it the profile, you know? OK. Here’s what we’re gonna do. Wouldn’t you agree with this? Everybody I know you’ll say yes. We’ve got to be the most photographed culture in the history of mankind. The most photographed generation in history. And I would say we’re also the most self-photographed generation in history. You know, we love to take selfies, pictures of yourself. We do.
It was the moment that changed the world, the instant that everything we knew shifted. It was when the world gained a new understanding of God and what He wants for all of us. It was the moment Jesus was born.
In this special Christmas message, Pastor Ed Young looks at the power of that moment in the past. And we realize how it can change everything about our lives forever.
All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”—which means, “God with us.”
