A Christmas Present for You
I love Christmas! I love Santa! I love all the tree decorating, and endless Michael Buble Christmas songs! I love it all!! But the one thing I love the most is the reason for the season: Jesus.
Christians believe all round the world that God became a human 2000 years ago, 2000 miles away! I find this amazing and incredible that Jesus aka ‘God with us’ is ‘with us’ today, in our hearts, churches,
homes and communities.
Below, as gift to you, I have given you all a small early Christmas present! It’s a short list of some of the amazing benefits Jesus gives everyone. I encourage you to cut it out and remind yourself everyday in December of the true wonder of Christmas.
The birth of Jesus shows us that God did not mess up when he made us but, like an awesome parent, he is a father who loves to parade us!
