“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.”
From all of us at Grace Church, Merry Christmas! We enjoyed walking through this devotional series with you all! Today is the day that we wrap this series up by the reading of the Christmas story. All that we have read up to this point brings us to the actual birth of Jesus. We have read about how Jesus came to earth to save us from the sin in our lives and how He is the greatest gift we could ever receive! Don’t lose sight of the reason for the season which is the birth of Jesus! However, like we learned, the birth of Jesus is only the beginning. He came to earth, lived a perfect life and died for us so that we could live in Heaven forever with Him!
As you spend today with family and friends, take the time to thank Jesus for all that He did for us. Thank Him for leaving His home in Heaven and dying on the cross for us. The famous John 3:16 tells us that God sent His only Son Jesus to die for us so that whoever believes Him will not really die because we have everlasting life. That is why we celebrate today 🙂
Enjoy your Christmas!
