“If It Had Not Been for Christ”

O Come All Ye Faithful, joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and Behold Him, born the King of Angels,
O come let us adore Him, Christ, the Lord.
Let us be glad and rejoice for the Hope, Love and Joy that Christ brought to our earth. He came bringing good news. To me having that Saviour of the whole wide world living in my heart is so amazing. He loves me and He loves you and wants you to know Him too. Talk to Him, ask Him to come live inside you.
Be thankful you can celebrate Jesus birth where so many are unable to do this. Bless others with extra that you have the whole year through. Remember:
“He comes to make His blessings flow,
Far as the curse is found.
He took the curse for you and He asks you to believe……
