The Birth of Christ and the Death of Death



Highlighting the detail of “the myrrh” in the Christmas story, Louie Giglio shows listeners how death’s place in the story is that of a defeated enemy. Our God is acquainted with death and very familiar with its sting, but He has also conquered it once and for all through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.

  1. Jesus has defeated death.
    • Isaiah 53:4-6
    • He was pierced.
    • Death + pierced tied together in the context of myrrh.
    • The birth of Christ and the death of death.
  2. God shares your loss for loved ones passed, and holds you with hope until you see them again.
    • The myrrh comes out in a tear.
    • When the tree is punctured, it “bleeds” and sheds “tears.”
    • 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
    • Grieving is a part of life and faith. Grieving is the authentication of love.
    • Revelation 21:1-5
  3. God is going to provide everything you need for what He has called you to do.
    • People are on the way with what you need and His timing is perfect for you.
    • He is going to bring you what you need so you can remember what He has done.


"God shares your loss of loved ones passed and holds you with hope until you see them again."
