Message for December 16, 2018 from Pastor Shirley

For this is how much God loved the world—he gave his one and only, unique Son as a gift. So now everyone who believes in him will never perish but experience everlasting life.  John 3:16

     The real message of  Christmas is not the gifts that we give to each other. Rather, it is a reminder of the gift that God has given to each of us.   

     The  gift, comes from the greatest giver there has ever been- God Himself.  For God so loved that while we were yet sinners (Romans 4:8) God demonstrated His love for us by sending His only begotten Son to suffer, bleed, die, and then rise from the dead for our sin. Love caused the greatest giver to give the greatest gift – Jesus. We did not deserve Jesus: His birth, His life, or His death.  God gave His gift for the entire world. To everyone (anyone) who believes upon Him. Romans 10:8 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved”.

    As we celebrate this glorious time of the year let us never forget the gift that was given to humanity from God. We are the reason for the gift. The gift was Jesus a Savior to those who would believe.  “And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord”. Luke 2:11
