Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year!
Every Christmas season the world stops and recognizes that there is something in particular happening. They glance at the colorful seasonal decorations and hear the glee of those singing the holiday cheer but somehow fail to acknowledge the true reason for the season.
“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11.
For those of us in the family of God, Christmas brings about a time of awe, great joy and wonder. We go through great lengths to share the Christmas story by inviting friends and family to numerous plays and chorale renditions, hoping they come to know God’s good news – Emmanuel, “God with us”. During Christmas time, let us remember that our Father God gave us the greatest gift of love; He sent His only Son, JESUS to save us from our sins so we may have the abundant life in Christ, and be with Him forever.
“Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinner reconciled!”
“Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
Gratefully in His service,
Reverend Ben Refuerzo
FAFB/IAFB General Superintendent
