The Reason for the Season

Yes, it truly IS the reason for the season.  The wreaths and bows and trees and packages and cookies and candies are great.  Shopping isn't too bad either (it gives my wife and I some 'alone' time).  I enjoy all the Holiday songs too. And the family get-togethers.  But...the real reason for the season is because God sent his only son to Earth to save us from our sins.  Now THAT'S a gift.  The greatest gift of all.

I hope you are enjoying this special time of the year.

John 3:16 is my all time favorite quote from the Bible. Even as far back as when I was in Mission school I can still sing it too. We sang it to the tune of Silent Night.

John 3:16, John 3:16
For God so loved the world that He
Gave His only be-got-ten son
For whosoever believeth in Him
Shall not perish but ha-ave

Loved it then, love it now. xxoo
