THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Jesus is the reason for the season

Have your say

As we consider this season of advent and look forward to the Christian festival of Christmas, where the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ is celebrated, it is good to remind ourselves that “Jesus is indeed the true reason for the season” and not everything else that merely masquerades as the authentic article or the real deal.

The baby Jesus came into our world 2,000 years ago as God incarnate and as he grew he lived a selfless, sinless life, eventually being crucified for only doing good, not merely showing us the way

but actually being “the way.”

He took upon himself our sin, and rising from the dead on the third day he made it possible for us to have a way back to God, having broken the power of sin and death forever..

This Christmas I pray that you will have fresh hope by putting your trust and confidence in the eternal, rather than the temporal, and on behalf of everyone in Churches Together in Spalding and District

and all the Christian Community in South Holland may I wish you all “A Very Happy Christmas and A Healthy, Peaceful and Prosperous New Year.”

Pastor Kevin Taylor, South Holland Community Church, Spalding.
