"THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD"
November 26, 2019
It is beautifully described as "the greatest story ever told." It is most concisely expressed in the greatest statement ever made--John 3:16. No event in human history deserves or requires the use of as many superlatives as the birth of Jesus Christ. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
Christmas and giving are inseparable, for God established the pattern when he gave the gift of His one and only son who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and was born of a virgin. According to John 3:16, the gift is the means of salvation for everyone who believes. An angel was sent to announce the birth of a baby, and a group of shepherds guarding their sheep were the first to receive the good news on that special day ". . . . a Savior was born for you. He is Christ the Lord." Luke 2:11
Today, 2000 years later, we open our Bible and read of that glorious night when the heavens opened and the angels proclaimed the good news about the Greatest Gift of All--Our Savior Jesus Christ. May the beauty of God's gift fill your heart with joy this Christmas season. Merry Christmas and God bless you!
