“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Christmastime is an entire season of light, love, and joy. The big questions of life are ultimately answered in the Lord Jesus Christ for we have been created by Him, for Him, and one day everyone will give an account before Him. What we do with Christ in this life determines whether we will face Him as our Gracious Savior or Righteous Judge in the next. Jesus Christ is the Light of Truth and Sovereign Creator of the world. His love for sinners was poured out at the cross where His royal blood was shed as payment for our rebellion. Because of Him, we can be saved by grace through faith alone and have glad tidings of great joy resident in our hearts. This joy springs from the ultimate gift of total forgiveness of sins and life eternal in Jesus Christ. There is no life that is so broken, hopeless, and destitute to be beyond the reach of God’s love and grace. Jesus, the God-Man, whose incarnation we celebrate as Christmas came into this empty sin-cursed world full of grace and full of truth. He did so that we might see the light of truth, be liberated by His love, and taste the glory of enduring joy. This is why we celebrate Christmas. So from our heart to yours, we pray that you have a very merry and Christ-filled Christmas and blessed New Year!
