Tidings of Comfort and Joy

“Fear not, for I bring you good tidings of great joy, for all nations!”

“Unto YOU this day, a Child is born! A SAVIOR is GIVEN, who is Christ the Lord!”

This is the message.

The following are things the message does not include:

Judgment

Unforgiveness

A conditional so-called “love”

Anger

Criticism

Hate

Exclusivity

An expectation of  human perfection

An unrealistic requirement that will never be met

The law

A lie

Punishment

Death

Rejection

Condemnation

Hypocrisy

A gift for people who are “good enough”

The following are things that ARE definitely included in the message:

Joy

Peace

Good news

Comfort

Unconditional Love

Forgiveness

Redemption

Adoption

Refreshment

Relief

Enlightenment

Goodness

Mercy

Grace

Truth

Light

Life

A Father

A Friend

A Family

Acceptance

A free gift for “ALL people”

That’s right, a FREE (no cost to you) GIFT (for you to keep)!

SALVATION

FOREVER.

The message is Jesus The message is goodness toward ALL. This is the God who loves you.

“For I would that no man would perish, but that ALL would come to the saving knowledge of Jesus.”

In order for God to be good to you, you do not have to do anything…He simply is good. Because He is. Forever.

He loves. He forgives. He is.

No conditions.

No requirements.

No exclusions.

You are accepted.

You are adopted.

You are loved (yes, even you).

“Unto YOU a child is born. Unto YOU a Savior is given.”

Merry Christmas!
