The purpose of Christmas can be summed up as:
“God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life!” (John 3:16).
And wrapped up in the gift of Jesus are more gifts that God wants us to have.
When we receive the gift of Jesus, God adds a new identity, new abilities, a supportive community, and an eternal destiny. He wants every person He creates to have these, but they follow from the first gift - Jesus, Emmanuel, God with us.
May God bless our “believing in him” this Christmas.
Listen now as Pastor Peter unpacks his thoughts.
