The Deepest Prayer of My Heart This Christmas

My prayer is that people would understand that Jesus is the person they were made by and made for. That they would understand that He loved them enough to go to the cross for them and pay the price for their sins so that they could live forever with Him on the New Earth, the eternal Heaven.

There’s a true story of a Christ-loving man who lay dying. His son asked, “Dad, how do you feel?”

His father replied: “Son, I feel like a little boy on Christmas Eve.”

Christmas is coming. We live our lives between the first Christmas and the second. We look back to that first Christmas and the life of Jesus on the earth for some 33 years—but we look forward to the Christmas in which the resurrected Christ will return and we, His resurrected people, will live with Him forever on the New Earth. And right when we think, “It doesn’t get any better than this” will!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Nanci and me, and from all the staff at Eternal Perspective Ministries.
