CHRISTMAS - A CULTURAL HERITAGE?

Another Christmas is around the corner and we give glory to the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ, the perfect gift from God to humanity. While the Christians are glad that Jesus Christ came to redeem mankind from the curse of our inherited sin; many unbelievers thought that Christmas is an inherited cultural heritage to be celebrated by everyone in this part of the world.

This later group of people may go along with the celebration of the season and even beautify their houses with glittering annual Christmas decorations, family gatherings and exchange of gifts; but never ask themselves who is this Jesus Christ that we are celebrating His birth or how come that this so called “cultural heritage” festival is so important in the life of our community than any other events in human history?.

The power and the Spirit behind this inherited “cultural heritage” clearly declared Himself as..” the light of the world and he who follows Him shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life” (John 8:12). Witnessing to this affirmation pronounced by the King of Glory; Apostle John testified that “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men”

Testimonies:

 

I am beholding the beauty of the Lord, surely God is in this house and I did not know. I just happen to move from Plymouth to ivy bridge and I was amazed and how God has been my provider once more, I was amazed more on how he opened my eyes to look at the things that he has done. He came in ordinary, he didn’t come in a mighty miracles. I really thank the Church especially people that supported me during my moving, God is awesome. It really moved me to the extent that I had promised God to visit each every one of you every Saturday.
