We've only had a white Christmas four times where I live in Dallas, but this one.. it can be a white Christmas for you. Yup, white as snow! What a gift! Why uber-complicate it all, when really you can receive, and give out the Gospel very uncomplicated? The Gospel is simple enough for a child to grasp -- turn, trust and connect with your very best Friend.. forever. On His terms. Think about it, it's the worldly fake news haters, deceived folk including cultists, and religionists who complicate it all, but God has never been religious or confused.

The Bible says, "God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life"

Stuff called just doesn't need to stay in the way. 

The problem is that...


This is called sin, and our sins have separated us from God, from enjoying fellowship with Him.

The Bible says "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." God is perfect and holy, and our sins separate us from God forever. The Bible says "The wages of sin is death."

The good news is that, over 2,000 years ago...


Jesus Christ is the sinless Son of God. He lived a sinless life and then died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. Yep, "God demonstrates His own love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us."

Jesus rose from the dead and now He lives in heaven with God His Father. He offers us the gift of eternal life -- of living forever with Him in heaven if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior. Jesus said "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me." There are indeed many ways to God.. standing before His holy judgment seat, but there's only one way to get into heaven and that's through Christ, thee door in.

God reaches out in love to you and wants you to be His child. The Bible promises, "As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe on His name." You can choose to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and ask Him to come in to your life as your Lord and Savior.

IT'S A GIFT TO RECEIVE. Your heavenly Father holds His Gift out for you. 

WOULD YOU LIKE TO RECEIVE GOD'S FORGIVENESS? Theres zero charge to you for this Wonderful gift. Yes, it's totally free, so you can walk and live totally free. Hurt people tend to hurt people, but healed Christian people can be used of Him to heal people. God uses free people to free other people.

If you want to be forgiven inside, (can happen by faith) simply decide to receive God's Christmas Gift. Accept Christ as your personal Savior, trusting Him to help you now turn from your sins. You can humbly come to Him; you can pray asking Him to become your Savior and Lord at this moment. Would you pray a prayer something like this:

"Father God, thanks for sending Jesus here. 
Lord Jesus,
Thanks for voluntarily coming here, for loving me and for having a good plan. 
I believe you are God the Son -- the holy Son of God.
And thanks for dying on the cross in my place -- for all my wrong-doin's, wrong thinkin's, or wrong sayin's (sins). You know what I mean.
Please do forgive my sins now and give me the gift of eternal life.
I ask you in to my life and heart at this time.. to be my Lord and Savior.
Help me grow. Use snd keep me. I want to serve you always."

Q. So..did you turn from sin to Jesus? Did you pray this (above), or a prayer like that? Great! Wonderful -- yes, congrats! Go tell someone stop this.

Perhaps you repented and believed on Christ long ago, but somehow took a stride from your Master's side ..or just got distracted.  Come back to. Turn back to Him. If feelin’ a bit melancholy this season of Noel.. look away from Christmas.. to Christ. Give me a second chance? Return to Jesus, He fully understands you. 
“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.“ Isaiah 26:3 
Too many are depressed and thinking about loved ones and years gone by. If that’s you, please get some help -- it’s there for you. 
The Bible says, “You will keep in perfect and constant peace the one whose mind is steadfast that is, committed and focused on You—in both inclination and character,
Because he trusts and takes refuge in You with hope and confident expectation.“
You know commercial Christmas really tries hard to deliver on its promise to you..we see so many ads and so much spent on em.. but it just can't do it. It can’t make you happy or fulfilled. It can’t fill up that empty or really lonely place inside your heart and life. Religion can’t deliver on it's promises either. Christ can, on His! Come to Him now. 
Q. How are you doin' this season? If you’ve been feeling a pensive sadness inside, or some sorrow with no easy or obvious cause.
Nearly 30,000 people die by suicide each year, and the rate of attempted suicide is much higher—so much so that there is an estimated one attempted suicide per minute. Worldwide, suicide claims more deaths than accidents, homicides, and war combined. And many cases of suicide, particularly in the elderly, go completely undetected and unaccounted. Get help now. Hey, if you feel like selfishly throwin' your life away (which would deeply hurt people), just throw it to Christ. He is your Living Hope. Jesus can comfort, regenerate, restore, revive or heal your broken heart and mind. Don't cut it off!
