Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord, Christ-centered Christmas greetings to each of you! May our heavenly Father grant us all a special and fresh revelation of the wondrous gift He has given to Earth in the person of His only-begotten Son. Oh, how we long for unsaved loved ones and co-workers and neighbors to see what we see in a nativity scene in a front yard. Think of all the things that come to each of us today because the Christ-child came over 2000 years ago!

 

We have preserved for us, His present-day disciples, the record of His teaching when He walked beside the Sea of Galilee with His first disciples. What a magnificent treasure coupled with the balance of His Holy Word in the Old and New Testaments!

 

We have His precious blood, shed on Calvary, cleansing us of our sin as we humbly confess to Him our guilt and iniquity. Oh the weight of condemnation! Oh the freedom of forgiveness!

 

We have His marvelous Holy Spirit, strengthening, teaching, comforting, sealing, residing within our very being! What a guarantee of such matchless grace, such consolation and the solid hope of an eternal destiny with Him!

 

Jesus Christ is our salvation from the hopeless plight of humanity. He is our redemption from the slave-block of sin. He is our sanctification for spiritual maturity and purity of character. He is our righteousness for acceptance before the Father’s Throne. He is our peace with God Almighty. He is our joy unspeakable and full of glory. He is our loving King and we are His ambassadors of love. He is our deliverance from bad habits and sins that so easily beset us. He is our Super-Hero who has defeated death, hell and the grave for us. He is our Friend - imagine...daily communion with Divine Majesty. He is our example of love and our empowerment for loving others. He is our ever-present help in our constant times of need. He is our personal proof of His promise of Amazing Grace. He is the Lamb who was slain for our sins, accepted by the Father as substitution for the eternal punishment we so rightly deserve! He is our Welcomer and our Greeter and our Sublime Guide into the precincts of Glory when we pass to the other side: "To be present from the body is to be present with the Lord!"

 

What a supernatural gift lay in that lowly manger! Did we bring Him gold and frankincense and myrrh? What paltry presents for the Majestic Prince of Peace. Let us bring Him obedience and reverence and faithful service – gifts befitting the eternal Regent of the Universe!

 

Jesus, Holy God Almighty, King of kings, Lord of lords may you be exalted and glorified in our lives! Amen.

 

Blessings to all. Thanks so much for your help and your prayers as we continue our work in this mission field. May we all spread the Word every chance we get.

 

We love you,

Jerry and Dar

"Comforting Words of Grace, Number Two" is ready!!! We are honored and blessed to be able to announce that the second DVD in the series, "Comforting Words of Grace" is now complete and ready for distribution. (View the segments of these DVDs here.)  Using the same format as the first in the series, this hour-long video plays the instrumental and vocal renditions of nine hymns from the middle of our hymn booklet, "Favorite Hymns of Grace" while showcasing many short clips of God’s wonderful, beautiful creation. During the instrumentals, scriptures are displayed on the screen and read out loud that relate to the message in each song. We have prepared and produced this resource and make it available upon request, at no charge (as resources allow), as a tool for ministry especially geared for the elderly, the infirm and those suffering from dementia.
