The year has seemingly flown by, and as the end of 2018 approaches, one of the most special days in the entire year is almost here!
Christmas at Trinity is always such a wonderful time to be a part of this church family. We enjoy so many wonderful Christmas reminders throughout the month of December. From our children participating in the Christmas play to our choir singing a Christmas concert, there are so many ways to celebrate the birth of our Savior!
Our “Birthday Offering for Jesus” is just two weeks away, and as our families pray and prepare for what we can do to further the Kingdom of Christ, there is one “loud truth” that is evident throughout the lives of our dear congregation: “God has been good!”
You see, this time of year can be a little overwhelming. Presents to buy, family to visit, places to take the kids, cooking, putting up the tree . . . the list goes on and on. But as Christians we have to step back, take a deep breath, and remember just what Christmas means.
The birth of Christ brought so many redeeming truths! In His first breath as an infant here on earth, He exhaled the only air ever circulated through the lungs of God in the form of man, and with it the sound of hope for allhumanitycame out of His precious, tiny mouth. The birth of Jesus brought salvation for your soul, peace for your heart, mercy and grace that we didn’t deserve, purpose for your existence, forgiveness for your failures, light to replace darkness, joy to replace sadness, glory for you to understand beauty, righteousness to justify unjustness, and precious blood to wash away the sins of a heart! So if anyone hasn’t said it to you yet this year, allow me to be the first, Merry Christmas!
