As we approach the special day when we celebrate the birth of the Savior, I pray that your Christmas and New Year will be greatly blessed! Join me in thanking God for the precious gift of His Son, who purchased our salvation with His own shed blood. That is the real story behind Christmas - not just the Nativity but the reason FOR the nativity. Jesus came to redeem a people for Himself by taking the punishment we deserve for our sins. He died on the cross and rose again from the dead for our justification. This is the life-changing Gospel - the Good News. Eternal salvation results when this simple truth is believed. A person repents of their sins, placing their trust in the Lord Jesus and His finished work on the cross. The new believer is then indwelt by the Holy Spirit, who seals His people, regenerates them and helps them live lives pleasing to God. I encourage you to come to Him this Christmas season. His arms are open wide to all who will hear.

Merry Christmas!
