He Comes, Bearing Gifts

Category:Events,Worship Tags : 

Curly head dolls that toddle and coo. Elephants, boats, and kiddie cars too. Santa Claus is comin’ to town.

You’ll hear those lyrics often during the holiday season—a song about a man who’s coming to bring all sorts of gifts. But, are they really gifts? The definition of a gift is “something given voluntarily without payment or condition.” The man in the red suit has conditions:

You better watch out. You better not cry. You better not pout.
He knows if you’ve been bad or good, so be good…


If you give someone a gift only if they meet certain qualifications, that is not a gift.

There is one who is coming, bearing real gifts, profoundly important gifts. Jesus came that first Christmas to win forgiveness and give all the gifts that come with it: hope, peace, joy, love. He is coming again at the end of this world to give you the gift of resurrection to eternal life. In the season of Advent, we connect Christ’s first coming with his second coming. We rejoice in all the unconditional gifts he gives. 

He is coming, bearing gifts. Let us prepare our hearts to meet him.

Join us on Sundays, December 2nd, 9th, and 16th for this series. 

9:30am

On Sunday, December 23rd, there will be a special children’s service.
