Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas

What a joy it is to celebrate with you the birth of Jesus, the Word of God who became flesh and made His dwelling among us!

As we celebrate His life, we also celebrate the greatest gift ever offered to mankind . . . the gift of eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ who came to save His people from their sins.

Did you know that we have the privilege of partaking in eternal life now? We don’t have to wait until we pass from earth to Heaven to experience it. Jesus said,

“Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.”
John 17:3

Eternal life begins when we place our faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior. It’s then that we enter into a relationship with Him and begin to know Him intimately.

If we allow them to, sufferings and adversities can actually cause us to drink in the thirst-quenching gift of eternal life, of knowing Jesus. This is why, looking back on the past year, I am so grateful for you!

You have helped us put God’s arms of love and comfort around a hurting world. Because of you, Shades of Grace has been able to share the light of the world with people enduring dark seasons of suffering.

And as a result, life-changing discoveries have been made. Hurting men and women who saw their trials as pure pain realized that hardships can serve as an invitation to know Jesus more fully – that suffering can help lead us to His abundant life and joy!

God bless you for joining us in sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ! Thank you for giving men and women a new chance at hope and life as they received God’s powerful Word!

In the giving of His very own Son, we see that God’s desire is to give. He is delighted to bless us as we bless others. And you have definitely blessed others!

I pray that God’s peace, joy and provision will rest upon upon you and your family this Christmas season and throughout the new year.

May the Spirit of the Christ-child be with you as we celebrate His birth!

Merry Christmas,


 “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” ~ John 8:12

Questions:  How have your trials caused you to know Jesus Christ more fully this past year? Have you seen the Light of the World more clearly in your dark seasons? If so, how has it changed your perspective of Christmas?
