It is about time to celebrate Christmas. How are you preparing for it?
Perhaps you are looking for the most suitable presents for your beloved or decorating your home with festive touches. However, how can we prepare ourselves to please the season’s hero – Jesus Christ?
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.
God prepared His gift for us more than 2,000 years ago, Jesus, His beloved one and only son. This reveals who our God is: LOVE. He loves each of us and knows our pains. He, the transcendent God, is willing to limit Himself to the flesh and live among us to bring us healing and salvation. He carefully designed, prepared, and took action to reveal His intention to call us to follow Him.
The loving plan of God is not only for us in Hong Kong but also for those in poverty, trafficked and imprisoned, shivering in winters and displaced in wars.
While preparing a merry Christmas for relatives and ourselves, we invite you to join in our God’s plan. You can share your love with others, making them full in insufficiency, free from imprisonment, warm in winters and comforted in displacement. They can then rejoice in Christmas with us. This is not only done on them but also on our LORD to please Him.
