Our Christmas Gift to God!

Happy New Year Everyone!  We just celebrated Christmas, where we all received some wonderful gifts.  Included in the gifts we’ve received is the birth of our Savior – the best gift we’ve ever been given!

In response, what do we offer God?  What’s the connection between God’s gift to us, and our lifestyle gifts to God?

Let’s talk about that today and discover how we can serve God with a content, joyful heart each day! 

We hope you enjoy this message!

Prayer: Gracious God, by nature I am the opposite of holy.  Day after day I see my sins of lying, greed, lust and laziness.  I repent of them, but then the next day, like a dog returning to its vomit, I often repeat the same sins I earlier confessed.  Like Paul, I cry out, “What a wretched man I am!  Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death (Romans 7:24)?”  Before despair conquers me, remind me of your gift to me – the status of complete forgiveness in Christ Jesus alone.  Then, strengthen the new person inside of me, so that i live my life in a way that honors you.  Strengthen your rule in my heart, Lord.  I want to give you gifts all year long as I love you as you have loved me first!  It’s in your holy name that I pray, Amen.
