HELLO FRIENDS: 12.19.13 – For Unto You Is Born…

Hello Friends,

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11

What a great promise. What amazing potential.

More than a foretelling of events. More than stating the obvious. More than the heralding of truth.

This statement holds within its frame a message of hope in the midst of hopelessness, clarity in the absence of illumination, salvation rather than endless desperation and inevitable change that confronts stoic reason. This was no ordinary child – this was the Christ Child, and it is unto us that this marvelous gift was given. Given in a day gone by, yet ever so real in our hearts right now.

Given not for our consumption but for our consecration.

Not for our pleasure but for our peace – true peace that can only come from the Father via His only precious Son…Jesus.


Pastor John

P.S.  Over the next four weeks I will be expanding on the theme of “UNTO YOU IS BORN.”  Keep an eye open for these HELLO FRIENDS emails.  Next week: Unto You Is Born…HOPE.
