- Who we are
- What we do
Christmas is about filling things up: our stomachs with huge meals… our stockings with presents… and our letterboxes with junk mail!
Yet it’s often at this time of excess that so many of us feel empty.
At its heart, Christmas is not about food, gifts or family: it’s about the real birth of the real Jesus, who though he was the creator of the world, became part of his creation as a real man.
Because he was a real man it meant he could die a real death for real sins—the sins of those of us who come to him for grace and mercy.
For we who trust in Jesus now have a real hope for this life and the life that is to come, and we can know the real love of the true God.
So, whether you’re feeling full or empty this Christmas, make sure you trust in the real hope of the real Jesus, trusting in the baby from Bethlehem who grew to be the man of the cross.
It is difficult to overstate how God has used our brother Billy Graham to see countless men, women and children come to know Jesus as their personal saviour.
In what may prove to be his final message, Dr Graham featured in a half-hour-long documentary, in which he reflects on his past ministry, but more than that, speaks again the heart of his message–the cross of Christ.
I cannot recommend this video more strongly, not only for believers in Jesus, but especially for those who don’t yet follow him.
The video also features the powerful testimonies of Christian rapper Lecrae, and musician Lacey Sturm, making this a video for all ages.
