For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not die, but shall have eternal life.

John 3:16

I chose this as my first post because for me, this verse summarizes the entire Bible.

When I look above at the old print of the shepherds adoring the baby Jesus, I like to imagine that I’m one of those in the crowd. How amazing to experience that event first hand… The Star, the angels declaration, and witnessing the coming of the long awaited Messiah just as the scriptures promised! My heart dances in my chest even to think of it now, so I can’t imagine how they must have felt.

In a nutshell, the birth of Jesus the Christ (the annointed One), was God Himself telling us that we are not alone. Our holy, wonderful, awesome, mighty, merciful, wise, sovereign God… really, really loves us!In a nutshell, the birth of Jesus the Christ (the annointed One), was God Himself telling us that we are not alone.
