Every good gift

That God who, prior to creating light, was the light
(Genesis 1:3), became the light "which lighteth every man" (John 1:9)
and will, Himself, be the sole source
of light in the New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:23).
That very God loved us so much that while we were
yet sinners, He came as a helpless babe
to die a sinless man,
and be resurrected into glory,
that wretches like you and I might live in
His unquenchable light . . .
both now and forever!

As we revel in His goodness and mercy, let us remember the reason for His Precious Gift . . . to bring glory to the Father in Heaven.

"Ye are the light of the world . . . Let your light
so shine before men, that they may see your
good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven"

(Matthew 5:14,16).

Merry Christmas!

I'll be in the office or near my phone at home
to help with any year-end giving the Lord lays
on your heart . . . that He might be glorified!
