The words you see above were written by a friend and pastor on his Twitter account today. I found them so profound that with his permission I created the above.
Giving and forgiving is the real story of Christmas. John 3:16-17, which is etched in the minds of the faithful says, “God so loved the world that He gave (giving) His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him would not perish but would have everlasting life. God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved (forgiving).”
Have you given much thought to the Reason for the Season this year? Do you know the One and Only Son of God? Have you received His forgiveness once and for all? Are you getting the point? He loves you so much He gave His own for you. This is personal to each person. If you or I were the only person on this earth He would have done it all the same. Not one of us is unforgivable. Not one of us is unlovable. He sent His Son for all of us. If you haven’t surrendered your life to Him, do it now! Call a friend or pastor and let them know you want to be totally His.
Blessings to you and yours!
A wonderful Christmas message Marie and yes Christmas is full of God’s Love and Grace, because in sending Jesus we were not just forgiven but we are set free to walk as Jesus does, in Truth and holiness.
1John 4:16-17 And we have known and believed the Love that God hath to us. God is Love; and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our Love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world.
1 John 5:18-20 We know that no one who is Born of God sins; but He who was Born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
