“Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:10-11, NKJV
Jesus Christ really is the Son of God. At the right time, according to God’s plan for our salvation, he really was born.
“But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.” Galatians 4:4-5, NKJV
Jesus really lived, he really died, and he really rose from the dead. Therefore he is really alive, even now. He is alive for you, even now.
The apostle John knew Jesus while he walked on earth. John saw Jesus die. Then he saw Jesus alive again. These are John’s words of encouragement and invitation to you:
“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, …we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.” 1 John 1:1, 3, NKJV
At St. Paul Lutheran Church we believe this. By the grace of God, we believe everything that Jesus and his apostles teach us about God’s mercy toward sinful humanity, and about the forgiveness and eternal life that is ours through faith in Christ. By God’s grace, we are gathered together each week to hear the gospel and receive the gifts of forgiveness, life, and salvation that Jesus won for us.
We invite you to join us and to believe this with us.
The Christmas season is a good time to come home to God, and to rediscover the joy of knowing God as your loving heavenly Father and Jesus Christ His Son as your Savior and Brother!
