God's Best for Christmas
As we go through life we often strive to be the best, look the
best, have the best and experience the best life has to offer. But the truth
is, many of us miss the BEST God has for us. It is found in a personal relationship
with Him through His Son, Jesus: God's BEST gift to the world!
God sent His Son into the world for a reason. He wants the BEST for us.
The truth of the real Christmas story is based upon God and His love for His creation. He wanted to be "with us" for a purpose. That purpose is clear in Scripture. Jesus came to rescue us, to save us from our sins, so that we might be forgiven and be with Him eternally.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. John 3:16-18 NIV
This was all motivated by God's love and desire to offer us what is BEST. God loves you! He said so in the Bible. Some don't believe, but that doesn't mean it isn't true. Often times truth isn't believed. This planet is a sphere, but for ages many people didn't believed that and thought it to be flat. For most folks it didn't matter that they thought the world was flat. But, unlike belief about the shape of the earth, it is of utmost, eternal, importance that you believe the truth about Jesus. If not, then you don't yet know what Christmas is really about and you are missing the BEST of life, now and eternally.
Come and explore with us each Sunday this season and experience how we can find the BEST life has to offer. We will explore how to find true HOPE, PEACE, JOY, LOVE and even GOD's FAVOR. We look forward to exploring with you!
I pray you have the BEST Christmas yet,
