Merry Christmas from our Family to Yours!
1 Timothy 1:15-17
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinnersâ€”of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Our Lord, Jesus Christ, came into this world as a baby, born unto a virgin…He lived a sinless life….was crucified on a cross….He bore our sins. He died, was buried, and rose again. He is alive today! The gift of salvation is a gift unlike any other…..it never loses its power, never gets old, and nothing can fill its place. My friend, the only thing that can fill that empty void in your heart and in your life is Jesus. You will never be complete until you have accepted His gift…the gift of eternal life, forgiveness of sins, and salvation.Â Our prayer this Christmas is that you will see your need for Him, that He will convict you of your sin and fallen nature, and that you will repent; turn from sin, self, and this world…and run to Him! May the joy of Christmas live in your heart this year and forever.
Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this is not of yourselves, for it is the gift of God.
