Truly, this is the most wonderful time of the year! Over 2,000 years ago God gave mankind the greatest gift ever given. He gave us love through Jesus - the Christ, our savior.
Why did we need a savior?. . .because we have issues. We say, do, and act in ways that we know ourselves are not good. Many of us recognize our need to change and we've tried to change ourselves many times but have limited to no success rate at it. That's why we need Jesus - He brings with Him the power to change us from what we are - to what we know in our hearts we should be, like Him.
It's kind of amazing how we can invest our money into banks or companies that have proven not to have our best interests at heart. We eat at restaurants everyday and trust that the food is safe. We go to doctors and trust what they advise us to do although the very name of their profession tells us that they are just practicing medicine. Why are we so quick to not believe in God and the one He has sent to save us from ourselves?
I encourage each of you who don't have a relationship with Him to investigate Jesus for yourself. Learn about Him from the book He wrote (The Bible) and those who know Him (His Church). In the words of the late Joan "Golden Girl" Golden - You'll be glad you did!
