    The Glory of Christmas

    This Christmas many will see beyond the gay wrappings, the colored lights, the lavish entertainment, and the lovely gifts and will find the glory of Christmas in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. How is this possible?

    Entering into the glory of Christmas is possible through a simple understanding, acceptance, and a resting by faith on what God has to say about the sending of His Son on that first Christmas.

    GOD'S GOOD TIDINGS: “...behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all the people. For unto you is born a Savior, which is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:10-11)

    GOD'S GREAT PURPOSE: “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” (1 John 4:10) Wonder of wonders – God not only loved us, but He sent His Son to put away our sins by His death on the Cross.

    OUR ETERNAL BLESSINGS: “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that ye through His poverty might be rich”. (2 Cor 8:9) Receiving Jesus Christ, by faith, brings one into the sharing of His untold riches both now and forever. How Glorious!

    Just now God is offering to you His gift. Take the Lord Jesus Christ and enter into the glory of Christmas!

    "Christmas is based on an exchange of gifts, the gift of God to man. His unspeakable gift of His Son, and the gift of man to God - when we present our bodies a living sacrifice." (Vance Havener)

    "The greatest and most momentous fact which the history of the world records is the fact of Christ's birth." (Charles H. Spurgeon)
