For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16. Christmas is when we remember the greatest gift of all when God sent His son into a dark world to bring His light of hope and eternal joy to humanity. Christmas is a time of giving to one another from our heart, as God gave to us. In our giving we bring joy to others just as God brought joy to us. As we share in the joy of the season, remember what Jesus did for us. He left His place of glory to dwell in human form, He died to make a way for each of us to be forgiven our past wrongs and reconciled to the Father as we believe in Him. He then rose again from the dead in victory as He is God. Thank God for Jesus today, and as we renew our faith and hope in Him at this time, may the joy of knowing you are loved beyond measure fill your heart.
