Christ Jesus is the reason for this giving season — and everything

Merry Christmas! Christmas time is an enjoyable season for everyone. The whole world is touched by Christmas, even the unbeliever. It’s a time of love, family, friendship, gratitude and unselfishness. It’s the season for the reason, and that “reason” is the reason for the season — the reason for everything.

It is written, “But when the fullness of time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.”

Christmas is a beautiful time of sharing and gift giving. It was recorded, “for unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given” — the greatest gift ever given or received, an exquisite gift of truth and grace, of mercy and forgiveness; the best present ever presented or accepted, one of love and promise from our Creator.

The gospel of Christ is the most important thing to understand, yet it and the cross is foolishness and an offense to the unbeliever. But there is always hope, while we still have breath and grace, that many unbelievers participate in Christmas and must be influenced by the giving Spirit of our Redeemer, because only Judaism and Christianity are ruled by a loving God and Father, Savior and Friend. No other religion can say that — only Immanuel, Yshua is God with us.

From His crib, to His cross, to His crypt, to His crown, may His unsurpassed peace and joy be your own.

Merry Christmas and please pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

    The White House issues ONE official card each year Ms. Bobin.

    The official White House holiday card for 2013 was designed by Chris Hankinson and reads, “As we gather around this season may the warmth and joy of the holidays fill your home.”

    Just looked at FOUR different Obama cards sent out for 2013 - they all mentioned Christmas or God.

    I guess YOU cannot believe everything InfoWars writes, then can you, Mr. Liebich?

    Apparently President Pinnocchio cannot give up his bigotry even at Christmas.

    The Obama family Christmas card contains no mention of Christ or Christmas.

    Incredible that William Van Amber Fields cannot give up his bigotry even at Christmas.

    FYI Mr. Fields, the God of the Christians and the Jews is also the same God of the Muslims, whether YOU like it or not.
