about the series
Lists, gifts, menus, parties, shopping. How many times have you arrived at Christmas Eve and realized that you missed the real “reason for the season?” MARKINC invites you to be intentional about cultivating intimacy with Jesus on our way to Christmas this year. Join MARKINC on their "Journey to Christmas with the Midwives of the Messiah". In this devotion, we’re going to pull back the curtains on the lives of five women: a wounded widow, a professional prostitute, an indomitable immigrant, a bathing beauty and a terrified teenager. Each of these women plays a key part in bringing Jesus into the world. They are harlots and heroines, midwives of the Messiah. We’ll get a glimpse into how God gave each of them a priceless gift that could not be broken, each gift is available to us today. As you work through this devotion, you may want to go a little deeper, so we are including a free PDF copy of Harlots and Heroines, The Midwives of the Messiah by Chuck Betters.
