Christmas Day

December 25, 2022

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6

Christmas Day

If you made or have an Advent wreath, begin by lighting the “Christ Candle” in Jesus’ honor. If you don’t have a wreath, light a candle to honor of Jesus, who brings light to our lives.

In the glow of the candlelight, reread the Christmas story from Matthew, chapters 1 & 2 and Luke, chapters 1 & 2.

You may have been excited to give and receive gifts today, but the most important gift you’ll ever receive won’t be found under a tree or in a stocking. Jesus left heaven to offer us the unmatched gifts of forgiveness, salvation, presence, hope, peace, love, joy, eternal life, and so much more.

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. John 3:16-17

Have you received the greatest gift ever offered - to know, love and follow Jesus this Christmas and beyond? If not, perhaps your greatest gift will come today as you accept Jesus’ invitation and welcome him into your heart.

Our Prayer for You

May the LORD who created the stars, and gave us his only son, bless you and protect you. May the LORD smile on you and be gracious to you. May the LORD show you his favor and give you his peace. Numbers 6:24b-26

Merry Christmas!
