Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! (2 Corinthians 9:15)
The Christmas season is a time of reflection, joy, and a time of celebration for Jesus being born. Jesus is the ultimate gift to humanity!
Jesus came so that we would experience life the way God intends us to, in a mighty way! Joy, peace, and love are ours because of Jesus! Without Him, the world is lost. He is light in the darkness. Keeping Jesus at the center of each Christmas season is one way that we experience the wonder of Jesus’ amazing love for us.
