Emmanuel sent to us

By Marty Tarrant 

He was the long-promised Emmanuel sent by God to save his people and usher in a new kingdom. He came as the mediator between God and man, as our redeemer, savior, and friend.

2000 years ago, God looked upon our sin ravished world, saw our hopelessness and all our futile attempts to make ourselves right with him. He did what we could never do, and he came to us. When Christ was born here on earth he quite literally became “God with us.” It’s the most important event in mankind’s history!

Christmas is about family and the love that you need to have for one another. It’s about coming together, breaking bread, and fellowship. We need to make sure that Christ is the center of everything that we do.

Christmas is about the joy of the Lord. It’s about being thankful for our health and everything else that God does for us daily. It’s about giving back and showing appreciation to those close to you in this life. It’s very important to never forget where you came from.

When celebrating Christmas, one should strive to have their character be “Christ like”. After all, you may be the only Bible someone reads. Let Jesus be seen through you. God wanted everyone to come to the knowledge of Christ and be saved so that no one would be lost.

God Bless,
Pastor Marty Tarrant
