Dear Friends,

At Christmas time, have you ever heard someone say, “Keep the spirit of Christmas in your heart the whole year”?  While I agree this is a great sentiment, and I do wish people would be as gracious and kind the entire year as they are during Christmas, in my opinion, we should daily remember the resurrection of Jesus.

The selfless sacrifice of the Savior is what allows us to enjoy the blessings of our good, good Father.  As Jesus defeated death and the grave, He gave us hope for a better tomorrow, freedom from sin, and a promise that, one day, we will finish our race victoriously and spend eternity with Him.  I urge you to daily remember Christ and the debt He paid for us.  Take time to intentionally share your thankfulness with others.

Remember, Jesus died for us, so that we could live for Him.
