Also I want to share with you a beautiful piece of artwork from one of our members, Karen. It’s a fascinating collage of images. If you have any questions about the picture, she welcomes your questions. Just leave her a comment on this week’s blog post. Karen, thank you for sharing this incredible visual message from our Great God!
We’re ending today with a quote I found from one of my favorite preachers and teachers, Dr. David Jeremiah. It’s from his Bible Study, “Why the Nativity?”
“If our greatest need had been information, God would have sent us an educator. If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent us a scientist. If our greatest need had been money, God would have sent us an economist. If our greatest need had been pleasure, God would have sent us an entertainer. But our greatest need was forgiveness and so God sent us a Savior.”
Praising God for this gift!!! The prayer of my heart for you is that each of you may you experience, in ways you never have before, the love and presence of our Savior, Emmanuel this Christmas season.
