HE IS COMING

Every individual is a matchless gift from God
Discover and cherish their attributes
Accept and overlook their bad tendencies for a time
Pray they will overcome these faults
With the help of Jesus Christ

Cling to Jesus to show you His way
Let the Bible enlighten your path
Be kind to all you encounter

Let your light of love shine brightly
Leading people out of darkness
Teach them God’s way
Many will join a good cause
Invite them to spread the gospel with you
Preparing the lost
For God’s eternal Kingdom to come
Teaching the truths found only in the Bible

Ready the masses for the reign of Jesus Christ the King
He promised to come again in glory
To welcome those wearing His robe of righteousness
A gift accepted by those who acknowledge
They cannot save themselves, not by works
Nor by any human effort
Only by humbling themselves and bowing to Jesus
Accepting His sacrifice on the cross of Calvary
And looking to Jesus for forgiveness if we sin

For the Holy Spirit enables us to come,
Confessing and repenting
Joyfully resuming the new life we’ve found in Christ
Confident God the Father will see in us
Only the righteousness of Christ

What a gift!
What a Savior
Accept Him into your heart now
For the signs of the times indicate
He is coming soon

IMMANUEL — GOD WITH US

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God: the same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (John 1:1-4, 14).

Scripture clearly reveals Jesus Christ as our Creator and establishes His dual divine and human nature. Further, His life reveals God’s glory — His magnificence and astounding character. Christ came into this world to give us life — eternal life. He came to cast light in the darkness, giving us truth, showing us the way. With the promise of His birth fulfilled, mankind could now be assured of a Child to become their Savior who would shower them with grace.

From the time God walked and communed with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, through the Fall of Man, and with the passing of time, God’s intent has always been to dwell with humans. He is a God of relationships. Christ came to save us from our sins and to restore our relationship with God — God the Father whom we had disobeyed. We can now confidently approach the throne of God with petitions and prayers of repentence through the mediation of Jesus Christ our Savior.

This Christmas season as we contemplate the birth of the Christ Child, let us give thanks and praise for His mercy in saving our fallen race and for His everlasting love for us. Let’s reciprocate that love by using both His strength and the grace He offers freely to us to honor and obey His Ten Commandments. Our Creator and Savior is worthy of no less worship and adoration.
