Advent 21-23

For the past few days we have been preparing to share the True meaning of Christmas with our congregation. The children have all worked very hard to memorize their parts and learn the songs for the Children's Christmas Service. This year I decided to keep it simple and use the program already written many years ago from Luke 2. I had a few teens do the narration and the children dressed in costume spoke at the appropriate places according to the Word. It is amazing how the simple spoken Word from the children can leave such an impression with the adults of the congregation. I was very proud that the children who needed to have their parts memorized completed that task almost effortlessly. Gods word is now embedded in their hearts and minds and now no one can ever take it away from them. I pray that each of them will remember the true meaning of Christmas as they sit around their tables full of food and as they open the presents that are under their tree.

Jesus who was/is fully God and fully man came to earth as the perfect sacrificial lamb for our sins so that those who believe will be blameless in the sight of the Lord. Eternal life is awaiting us all but only those who believe will be rejoicing in Heaven.

Sing Praises to Your King!
