The Gift - Web - Message Header

You're invited!

The very first Christmas ever—the birth of Jesus as recorded in Luke 2—is a familiar scene. Angels and shepherds, Mary and Joseph, a little drummer boy. (Wait! What?! Never mind... no drummer boy.) But the point is not these characters. The point is The Gift that is “good news that will cause great joy for all the people” (Luke 2:10). If this is the point of Christmas, then this is your question:

Do you know Jesus as the gift of actual good news for your life?
