Celebrate the Christmas gift of God’s eternal mercy


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times God is eternal and so is both His justice and His mercy. We all deserve His justice but He prefers we receive His mercy and that’s why Christmas exists. The first Christmas was more than 2,000 years ago when God gave humanity the gift of His mercy in the form of His Son, Jesus Christ. In giving us His Son who would eventually go on to be crucified for our sins, God demonstrated once and for all that He wants to be merciful to the human race. So great was that desire that He was willing to send His only Son to suffer for our sins and take them upon Himself so that we might receive eternal mercy. So this Christmas and ever other Christmas we are blessed to celebrate and, for that matter, every day of life we are blessed to enjoy, give thanks to God for that first, most precious Christmas gift, the gift of His Only Begotten Son, the gift of His eternal mercy.
