As we reflect on the manger today, we must also look to the cross! The cross that Jesus died on is the real reason we celebrate. It is the cross that gives us true hope — hope of redemption - hope of forgiveness, grace & mercy! We also need to look beyond the cross and see the empty tomb, for the empty tomb is what gives us hope for eternal life!
In all the excitement of family, friends, gifts, food, games and whatever else your traditions bring about today, I pray that each one of you know my Savior as your own Savior and that you have experienced His amazing grace & forgiveness. If not, what better way to spend CHRISTmas than by choosing to follow Him?
Here is my gift to you -- watch and reflect on the gift of our Lord!!!!
