December letter from Pastor Reggie
‘Tis the season!
Christmas is our favorite time of year. It’s full and rich with so many wonderful things. We enjoy special moments with those close to us and openly share in generosity to others. There are times of sharing food together and enjoying beautiful decorations. Our city has an exciting bounce in its step with anticipation of Christmas and the coming new year.
These parts of Christmas are great, but there is so much more! Christmas is when we celebrate and remember the most important point in all history – when God came to us!
All of creation, everything past and future, points to Jesus. He is the center.
Galatians 4:4 tells us that: “When the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son…” Jesus, the only Son of God, came in the fullness of time, right on schedule, so that we may be redeemed.
‘Tis the season to celebrate! Above all the things that we have going on during Christmas, this is the season to celebrate Him. Celebrate His coming, adore Him, worship Him, for He came to us.
Christmas is also the perfect time of year to seek out people we can encourage and be a blessing to. As we generously share with others this Christmas, our hearts will be filled with a Joy that comes from celebrating Christ’s birth.
‘Tis the season to Worship Him!
Bea and I pray that this will be your best Christmas ever.
You are so loved.
