The Real Meaning Of Christmas

By | Chip's Blog | No Comments

The story of the birth of Jesus, as familiar as it is to all of us, has never been told from the compelling perspective you will see revealed in Bethlehem.. From before the creation of man, God the Father knew that Satan would manipulate Adam and Eve into opposing Him, and thereby alienate God and man. To be reconciled to His creation, the Father knew that one day He would have to watch His Son endure being sacrificed on a cross for the sins of mankind. God the Son knew as well, that by creating man He was destined to face betrayal, rejection, brutal torture, and an agonizing death. And before life was breathed into Adam, with the omniscience of God alone, the Holy spirit knew that at the height of God the Son’s suffering on the cross, He must be forsaken to die in faith, so that He might claim victory over death and the grave.

Knowing all of this…God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit nevertheless chose to give life to man and face that inevitable day when the Son must shed His glory and lower Himself to be born of a woman. There was only one reason for Jesus to be born. It was to give up His life for those of us who would come to faith in Him.

That is the picture of the incomparable love of God that is presented in Bethlehem. We have had people who have been in the Lord for decades tell us that this play showed them something they had never realized, and that it had changed everything for them. It is humbling beyond words to hear such heart-felt testimony from sober-minded men and women of God.

If you want to share with your family the true meaning of the birth of Jesus, you won’t find a better way than bringing them to this beautiful and powerful musical.

We have just two more performances remaining. Those will be this Friday evening at 7:30 and Saturday afternoon at 3:00. If you haven’t seen Bethlehem, I so hope you will try to make one of these two special presentations.

"The show was so wonderful last Saturday that I’m bringing 12 plus myself from our church this Saturday. Only two of these ladies have been before to Ragtown. I always tell them once they have attended they will not want to miss a show after that. Thank you and all of the cast for sharing the wonderful talents God has given you with all of us."

"Wow! I enjoyed the whole experience of the play, music, beautiful theater and I hope you are there for many, many years. Everyone from our church was so thrilled, our bus sang all the way back to Lubbock. Thank you again for a wonderful night, and I plan to tell others and definitely come again."

"What a wonderful time we had last night at Ragtown Gospel Theater! God is so good! He has blessed your family with wonderful talent! To be able to entertain as well as spreading God’s word, and love what you are doing to boot, must be wonderful! Praise to our Lord and Savior! We will be back!"

− Joyce S., Idalou, TX

"I loved Joseph the Carpenter, the story was wonderful I loved the humor. A brilliant performance by the actors and lots of credit goes to the writer. Thank you Chip for using your singing and writing talent for the Lord. May God continue to bless Ragtown Theater and the Polk Families. "
