Everything was unfair about the birth of Jesus in the world two thousand years ago. No royal welcome. No fireworks on central squares of Jerusalem. As a matter of fact, He didn’t have to come. This world didn’t deserve Him. They were evil. They were fighting. They forgot the One who created this world and gave them life itself. Still, Christ chose to come to them. He volunteered to experience pain, humiliation, and death just because He loved them and us living in the 21st century. There is still plenty of unfairness in our world. Are we showing the same spirit of grace as Christ extended to us? Let this be our daily desire as we are preparing to celebrate Christmas in three weeks.
Wouldn’t it be great to have the new church groundbreaking ceremony in 2023? We are getting really close to the critical amount needed to start the project. The church agreed to dedicate our Special Christmas offering to the Cornerstone Building Fund. We are praying about reaching 2.2 million by December 31. One person will not be able to contribute that much, but if we all bring our part we’ll see great things happening with our church ministry expansion. I invite you to become coworkers with Christ in serving to the growing needs of this community.
