Believe! This is the week of Christmas — and it is so important that we believe God and receive Christ.
When the angel Gabriel spoke to the virgin Mary over 2,000 years ago and said she would have a Son even though she was a virgin, she did not doubt — she believed. She said “How will this be, since I am a virgin?” Mary believed God — and she received God’s promise, the Christ child.
When you celebrate Christmas this year, focus on Christ — the wonderful son of God who came to earth to be our Savior. Believe in Him as the Son of God; receive Him in to your heart if you have not done so already. And let’s pray that:
- Millions of people across the whole world will believe in God and in Jesus Christ as the Son of God
- People everywhere will receive Christ as their Savior and Lord
- Your own friends and family will all welcome Christ as their personal Savior
When Christ came to be born on earth, people had a simple choice — would they believe in Him as Savior?
Would they receive Him into their lives?
Would they welcome Him?
Our choice is the same today.
Let us celebrate the birth of Christ into the world — and into our hearts. Merry Christmas!
Please pray for all the people who are lonely this Christmas.
For many people, Christmas is a time of great joy.
Other people may be alone, and afraid, and not have anyone to spend the holidays with.
Please pray that others would come around them and show them love.
