Scripture(s): Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. (James 1:17 NIV)
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23 NIV)
Song Inspiration: Jesus Is The Reason For The Season – Kirk Franklin & The Family
On this wonderful Tuesday that our Dear Lord created, I want to wish you all a very Merry, Merry Christmas! Though we have made it the norm to exchange gifts amongst family and friends, let us not forget the greatest gift of all: the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
As we gather around the Christmas tree and fellowship with one another, keep in mind that Jesus Is The Reason For The Season, and He always will be! In the midst of all the more secular traditions of Christmas, I encourage you to give a gift of worship to God for his everlasting love. He cares so much for our salvation that He sent His one and only begotten son to save us from our sins. For that, we should be forever thankful and we should take the time to show our gratitude!
During this holiday season, I pray that you are able to enjoy gift exchanges, family dinners, and the overall Christmas fun and festivities. But to also acknowledge the true meaning of Christmas in the process of all those things is such a blessing within itself.
Wishing you all love, joy, and peace…Merry Christmas!

I don’t need material things
All I need is the love you bring
This holiday, I came to say
That Jesus is the only way
