For me, this is the best time of the year. The summer is past, the harvest is safely gathered in, and everyone is prepared for the winter season. Across the world hope and expectancy are in the air, and preparations of all kinds are well underway.
Open your Bible and every part will remind you of giving and thanksgiving. On the early pages of Genesis with its gift of a new beautiful planet for the human race, to the closing scenes of the book of Revelation with its promise of the gift of a new heaven and a new earth. The Bible makes it clear that our past, our present and our future are gifts from the hand of the Creator God.
And in the midst of all the wonderful gifts, we thank God this Christmas for the gift of a Saviour and declare with the hymnist Philip Doddridge:
“Hark the glad sound! The Saviour comes
The Saviour promised long:
Let every heart prepare a throne
And every voice a song.”
Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift.
What type of gift would you like this Christmas?
It would be good to know that the gift you receive this Christmas would be the best ever, the best gift that money cannot buy.
A gift that will never become obsolete, or go out of fashion. A gift which is certain to satisfy, because it comes from someone who loves us and knows exactly what we need.
IMAGINE OPENING A PARCEL CONTAINING THE FOLLOWING -

God gave these and more, much more, when He gave Jesus Christ to be our Saviour.
If you would like to know more, why not join us this Christmas!
