"I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger." (Luke 2:10-12 NKJV)

For Unto Us A Child Is Born!
Today, Jen shares a short Christmas story she wrote, one that I think can speak to all of us. Then we read the Christmas story out of Luke chapters one and two.
The amazing thing about Christmas is that, as we have formed a tradition of giving and receiving gifts, the One who should be the central focus of Christmas gave us the most precious gift of all. And whosoever believeth upon Him will never perish, but will have everlasting life.
Eight days after Jesus' birth, His life and death were prophecied over Him. From the very beginning, He was set apart as the perfect, spotless lamb for sacrifice, to pay for the sins of the world.
Have you received God's gift of love for you? Or are you wandering around in the darkness, heading for eternity paying for your sins for which Jesus died?
This year, we challenge you to come to the reason we celebrate. Accept His gift to you, and give Him your life in return. You will become a brand new creation, pure and holy, for "if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, and behold, all things have become new." And you will never be the same!
Send us an e-mail, and we will talk with you and introduce you to the Messiah.
