Betty and I want to take this opportunity to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas. There is nothing more special than considering the fact that God would love us so much that He would put on human flesh and come to this world to die for us.
Christmas is about a lot more than gifts, food, and parties. It is about the God of Heaven moving forward on His plan of salvation. So I want to say to all of you to be sure of your salvation.
Do not trust in joining the church, filling out a decision card, or even praying certain words. Trust in the fact that you realized that you had sinned against a Holy God. That you deserved Hell but that Jesus loved you so much that He gave His life on Calvary for you. Trust the fact that the Holy Spirit of God convicted and convinced you of your sinful condition. Then trust in the fact that you received the free gift of God, salvation through Jesus Christ.
That is the only way to know that you will really have a Merry Christmas.
We also want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for all that you do for us. Thank you for your cards, gifts, notes, and greetings. You have been so kind to us. We feel greatly honored that we are allowed to serve God at Vision Baptist Church.
