Word Of The Month

We are in DECEMBER!

 

It is unbelievable that we are in the last month of the year. This is the time for holidays, gatherings and celebrations.

 

The annual Christmas light-up creates a joyous atmosphere in the city. Malls are beautifully decorated. Streets and stores are packed as people go about their shopping.  Airports get crowded with families going for holidays.

 

I love December.  It’s the time to celebrate the birth of Jesus. In the midst of buying presents and having get-togethers, it is most important to CELEBRATE JESUS. The slogan says, JESUS is the REASON for the SEASON.  As you think about the Incarnated God (God becoming man), may you be filled with awe & wonder!  Our church’s 3-week Advent series seeks to prepare you to understand the meaning of Christmas and experience what Jesus has brought into our world.  Invite your family and friends to the Advent services and then to celebrate Christmas with us. We are blessed that Alma Rivera, an international singer/song writer, will sing & share the Christmas message.

 

December is also the time to get ready for the New Year. Whether 2019 has been good or bad, it will become history. We thank God for His blessings; we also thank Him that He has brought us through tough times. Lord Tennyson, “Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, ‘It will be happier.’” Jesus says, “Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matt 28:20)

 

Have a wonderful December!
