Christmas is over

Bet you knew that already! No more people saying Christmas is a celebration of the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ or should be but you took no notice anyway, you just wanted to have a good time. So you had your good times, seeing friends and family, partying, eating lots of good food, having too much alcohol too often it hurt the next day. Well that was your good time and sadly it’s all done and finished with now and even better you don’t have to think about Jesus, if ever you did in the first place. Jesus was thinking about you though. Jesus was remembering the days he suffered, was beaten and tortured, tied and nailed to a cross and it was all for you. Why did he do that? Because he loves you even though you may not love him or even believe in him or that he ever existed. The thing is, he had always existed and he does love you.

John 1
The Word became flesh
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

He offers you a better life, an everlasting one and one centred not on earthly pleasures which all pass away but on a life with him in Heaven and all you’ve got to do is believe in him and in the one who sent him, our Creator God the Father. If you turn to Jesus Christmas and New Year celebrations , nice as they are will be seen for what they are as they are celebrated by unbelieving hearts. You will have passed from death to life and have a real future to look forward too so why not take him at his word? Come and feel the love of Jesus…..

Come and feel the love of Jesus,
Lose your sin and foolish pride,
Let his arms gently enfold you,
Sense his presence at your side,
Sense his presence
Sense his presence
Sense his presence at your side.

Come to me you sick and weary,
Lay your head upon my knee,
I am Jesus, I am healer,
Put your trust and faith in me,
Put your trust
Put your trust
Put your trust and faith in me.

Come to me downcast and lonely,
Lay your burden at my feet,
You’re the one that I have died for,
I have come to set you free,
I have come
I have come
I have come to set you free.

John 3:16

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
