Another year has zoomed past, as can be attested to the flood of holiday visitors to our little town.
I’m sure we can all agree that there were good times and bad times.
But 2019 lies ahead like a fresh new morning and it’s running towards you with open arms.
I’d like to take the opportunity to wish you and yours a wonderful Christmas.
But I’d also like to take the opportunity to challenge you to not have a festive season without Jesus, who was born roughly 2,000 years ago and died a miserable sinner’s death so that we may have life eternal.
So, if you’re a Christian, carry on serving our Lord Jesus.
But if you’re not a Christian, use the festive season (which, according to statistics, is not that festive for many people) to seek the Lord Jesus Christ.
For a child will be born for us,
a son will be given to us,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
He will be named
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
