Dear Bethel Family,

Dear Bethel Family,


Is your Christmas tree up and decorated? Do you have all your Christmas shopping done? Maybe colorful lights adorn the outside of your home. Have you done all your Christmas baking? Are your Christmas cards written out to all your friends and loved ones? This is a very busy month! It's a wonderful time as we enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of Christmas.


Christmas is a time of remembrance. The season has a way of moving us back to our childhood. We remember Christmases of long ago when things were simpler, cheaper, and people were more contented with less. I personally believe those days were better as people genuinely cared for one another and were happy with what the Lord had blessed them with. We have been blessed abundantly but we still want more. We remember the Lord's gifts to us but somehow we have a tendency to take it all for granted. Could it be that as Americans we are ungrateful to the God of mercy and love? Not only do we remember our childhood during this wonderful time of year, but we also remember the baby in a manger.


If we are wise, we will take time, especially at this time of year to remember the announcement from the angel that blessed night. “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:10-11 (NKJV). How important it is to remember that blessed event that gives us “great joy.” Those who repent of their sins and trust Christ as Savior possess great joy. Are you joyful this Christmas season? Real, genuine joy is found in Jesus. Take time to love the Savior. Don't be too busy, and be careful not to get caught up in the commercialism of Christmas. Remember Him and worship Him. May your life be a reflection of Jesus this Christmas!


Merry Christmas! Soli Deo Gloria, Glory to God alone!

Gary

Articles of Faith

 

 

 

Man's way leads to a hopeless end - God's way leads to an endless hope.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved
-John 3:16-17
