the true meaning of
Each day, the news reminds us that we live in a world where violence, sorrow, and uncertainty confront us. This evening, we want to consider with you what the Bible describes as “good news,” the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. The angel of the Lord announced to the Bethlehem shepherds “good news of great joy that will be for all the people.” This good news tells us that God sent His Son because of His deep interest in our eternal security, safety, and well-being.
The story behind the carol...
That April day at Calvary, when Christ died for our sins, was the real “Black Friday,” the day when the greatest benefit and the greatest “savings” possible were secured. As a result of the Saviour’s death and resurrection, God is able to righteously forgive, save, and bless each person who trusts the Lord Jesus. His Gospel offers us rest in the midst of life’s storms, hope amid the darkness, life in a world of death, and certainty instead of fear.
“He that believes on the Son has everlasting life”
We could wish no greater blessing for you and your family than the blessing of a personal, spiritual relationship with God through the Lord Jesus. That will result in your having not only a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, but a joyous life and eternal bliss.
