Merry Christmas!

May the peace, power, and promises of God through Jesus the Christ be with you all this holiday season - and ever after!

The memorial of the birth of Christ also reminds us not merely of the joy of a newborn babe, but of the love of God. As Paul Harvey would say, "Here's the REST of the STORY..."

That story is about the profound and marvelous life of Yeshua, the tragic and seemingly unjust death of this great man, followed by his awesome ressurection to life, his appearance, and his ascension to Heaven, the anointing of his followers with his Holy Spirit, and his trustworthy promise to return.

And how deep the Father's love for us that he should give his only Son to die in our place for the unmerited privilege of living in Him, with Him, and He in us - forever!

I don't know about you, but to me that is GOOD NEWS!

Maranatha and Merry Christmas!
