Chaplain’s Corner - December 2017

Jesus Is the Reason for the Season

For some of you this is a time to experience the wonderful joy of being with your family and friends to celebrate the fantastic love of God. The birth of Jesus Christ shows us the way to know God through the life and teachings of Jesus in a direct and personal way. Jesus was sent by God to restore the loving and intimate relationship He had with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. God continued to love them as he continues to love us. God invites us to use our freedom to choose to accept Jesus as our personal Savior and Lord. In so doing, we receive God’s forgiveness of the sins committed while living in a broken relationship with God.

For some of us, this Christmas can be the time to use our freedom to decide to accept God’s love, accepting Jesus as our personal Savior and Lord. Should you do this, God will give you His Holy Spirit, and give you His promise of eternal life with Him in Heaven. This is just the beginning of the wonder of God’s love that will guide and strengthen us as we walk in the footsteps of Jesus, becoming more like Jesus each day of our time on earth. This Christmas, God may be offering you the gift of His love revealed perfectly in the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

My Christmas Prayer for you is that you have accepted His loving gift of Jesus, bringing the joy of His love and solace into your life.

Love you all,
Chaplain Szilvasy
