     You will find our Christmas Eve schedule elsewhere in the Herald. Christmas season is a special time for families to celebrate together the birth of our Savior Jesus in Bethlehem. As you celebrate this year, take some time to consider how Jesus’ birth changed the entire world. I spoke this past Sunday about the seeming contradictions surrounding Jesus’ birth. We should also consider the birth of Jesus as the most important event in all of history. But His birth simply re-sets the clock of human history. Prior to that event, all believers in God looked forward to the time of the Messiah. Jesus’ birth began the time of the Messiah. For 33 years, God walked among mankind showing us how to live. Then, He showed us how to have eternal life and really live.

      As you celebrate, remember to give time for Jesus. And give Him a gift for all He has given us. The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is an opportunity to give a gift to Jesus. Help us reach our goal of $20,000 going from FBC Sanger to worldwide mission causes. Check out the IMB website to see the great work our money supports.
