Luke 1:32, 33
How amazing, He fulfilled every OT prophecy. God promised His Son years before He appeared. We can always, 100% of the time rely on the promises God gives us. He will always prove faithful, always prove to be true. He is our God, Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. These promises bring me great comfort, fill me with great joy and I pray that the same is true for each one of you.
As you enter into the week of His birth, I humbly come before you and say, KEEP CHRIST FIRST. I pray each of you has a joyous Christmas with your loved ones and that you truly celebrate the meaning of this day. This isn’t just a day to relish in gifts; it’s the day our Savior, Redeemer, Propitiation for our sins was born. I love you all and most importantly, so does our God, the Son, and His Holy Spirit.
