Gift giving at Christmas can be both a burden and a blessing.
We all know how much pleasure we get when we receive a gift that perfectly itches where we’re scratching. But we also know how tricky it can be to get the perfect present for friends and loved ones.
In the end, the best present anyone can get at Christmas is the forgiveness of their sins.
When an angel appeared to Joseph, he said that his fiancee Mary, “will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21)
The name of Jesus showed the mission of Jesus: the forgiveness of sins.
You might think that giving someone the forgiveness of sins is too difficult. It’s much easier buying a box of shortbread than evangelising your family.
But the best way to start the process is to simply invite your friends along to one of our Christmas events, so that you can let the message of God’s word speak to their hearts.
And then this is the perfect conversation starter, as you share what Christmas really means to you.
Who are you going to invite along to our Christmas events this year?
