Christmas is all about Love!

It is about love and respect for God, the magnificent, mighty Creator of the universe. But mostly it is about the love that God has for the race of humans He created, endowing its members with special gifts of intelligence and powers of discernment.

The superb engineering of the universe with its millions of galaxies hurtling massively through space and time did not come about by accident or by any random Big Bang. A speeding bullet will lose momentum in its trajectory and eventually slow down. But our universe does not slow down. Over the centuries it continues to grow and gain momentum in a way that has baffled the best scientific minds.

This is why the Heavens proclaim the greatness of our God, and faith prevails where reason falters .
.
It has been revealed to man that God created the Heavens and the Earth and ordained that men and women should populate the earth.
God gave to man a code of ethics to live by, popularly known as the Commandments. When rebellious man showed his unwillingness to to live by that code, God sent his Son Jesus, out of love for the sons and daughters He had created, to redeem them and lead them back to a knowledge and appreciation of God.

Christmas is the fulfilment of God’s promise to send a Redeemer, and Jesus himself proclaimed it when he announced that “the Kingdom of God is at hand.”(Mark 1:15)

The Kingdom of God is at hand for those who believe and accept Jesus. Those who do not believe, do not accept, will sooner or later learn the truth – that Jesus is Lord and Redeemer.

For those who accept and believe Christmas is a time of great joy, peace and spiritual satisfaction, when we can set aside the cares and worries of daily living and become immersed in the love of Jesus, foretold from of old, and now dwelling amongst
us.

“Behold, I am with you, even unto the consummation of the world. ( Matt. 28:20)
