1. Christmas Message: Love and Faith

“Yes, God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not be lost but may have eternal life.” (Jh. 3: 16)

God took the initiative because he is Love.  Love must be shared.

Our response to God’s love initiative is Faith.  Faith in Jesus Christ.  This means three things:

  • Accept Jesus in our hearts – welcome him;
  • Trust in Jesus because he is God-made-man;
  • Obey him wholeheartedly.

Result?  Union with God in everlasting happiness.
