Sunday Service: The True Meaning Of Christmas

The word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the father,) full of grace and truth. – John 1:14

 

Yesterday morning was fourth week advent at my church and the service was beautiful as usual. The elders of the church spoke in narration of Jesus. We viewed screen projections of the circumstances and holiness of Jesus’s birth before and after he came into the world. All of us members were soothed with the calm melodies of the hymns of song.

Our pastor gave a beautiful benediction about the love of God and the true meaning of Christmas.

Indeed, the greatest gift of all to the entire world was the most loving and unselfish act of Jesus coming to die for our sins so that we would no longer be separated from father God and have eternal life forever in his presence.

There is no higher love than what God passionately came and displayed for us.

I took some lovely photos with my smartphone of the Christmas tree and Nativity scene set up at my pleasant church home.

 

 

Church

Back during the spring, I prayed to God to find me a good church that was right and compatible for me to attend. One that was Christian and that preached straight out of the bible.

God answered my prayer and delivered.

I found a nice church that I like with a Pastor who is authentic and studies the bible with me one on one every week.

My church gives Communion, has prayer group meetings, teaching and learning, outreach and service, discipleship and community and is dedicated to complete fellowship with God.

No church is perfect (as far as members who gossip, who are judgmental, and who put on airs in general) but I found my place of worship and I’m content with the church that the Lord led me to.

Going to church every Sunday, reading the bible regularly, and doing good works doesn’t mean one is saved. It is doing those things along with having a close personal relationship with our heavenly father. What is the purpose in going to church, reading the bible and doing good if one doesn’t truly know God/Jesus?  It never hurts to do good will regardless out of one’s heart, but we are not saved by any good works, bible reading or church attending. We are saved through faith and belief in our lord and savior with a true desire to want to give our life to him.

As long as we who are genuinely sincere, dedicated, and striving our best to live and stay connected to God we will be okay.

Jesus said:

Do This In Remembrance Of Me

 Then he took a cup of wine and gave thanks to God for it. Then he said, “Take this and share it among yourselves. For I will not drink wine again until the Kingdom of God has come.”

He took some bread and gave thanks to God for it. Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”
After supper he took another cup of wine and said, “This cup is the new covenant between God and his people—an agreement confirmed with my blood, which is poured out as a sacrifice for you. –Luke 22: 17-20
