This is an exciting time of the year for most people. I know it is for me! I enjoy this time of year when we get to spend more time together as a family. I also know it can be a very busy time. We need to make sure in the busyness of this season that we take time and pause. Take a deep breath and appreciate this season where we celebrate the Birth of our savior. I know I need to do this a few times during this season so I don’t become overwhelmed. By pausing, it keeps the joy of the season fresh within me. I hope this will help you as well.
We will continue our sermon series “5 Assumptions” about God, and why the assumptions are wrong. My prayer and hope is that as we go through these false assumptions, that you will have a fresh and clearer view of who Jesus is and what He has done for you. My hope is that through this time, you will have a greater and deeper understanding of what Christmas truly is. By getting rid of these false assumptions, it frees you up to worship our Lord more freely. We need to compare our assumptions about God against the scriptures to see if they are right or wrong. We do have some assumptions that are right, and they help us to grow in our relationship with God. But, when our assumptions are wrong, they cloud our vision about God and dim our belief and faith in God even to the point where you turn away from Him. So let us make sure our assumptions are right so that you and I can have a great personal relationship with God who loves us immensely.
I hope you will join me on this great journey where we try to get a clearer picture of who God is, where we seek out God’s plan for us, and how we are to love others. This is a life long journey which will have its challenges. I am excited to take the journey with everyone who wants to come along. I hope you will walk along side me and invite others to join us along the way!
God bless & Merry Christmas,
