“On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him.

Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.”
 
 

Unto Us.” “Born to us.” “For to us.” (Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:18-25) These are the words we read and find in Scripture which brings Christmas to us, the Son of God and the gift of good news for the whole world. Christmas can’t be without them. In these words, you, I, and the world cannot and did not do anything. Love (God) brought us Jesus through the virgin in Bethlehem. If Love (God) brought Jesus, then what would Love (God) have us do? I believe God desires us to Be Christmas to our community, country and the world.     

Let’s Be Christmas for the world! We’ll engage Christmas as an opportunity to declare our love for Jesus and love for all people in various places and spaces all over the world. We’ll worship, love and give through our Be Christmas. We will step into the opportunity and privilege to live out love and give, just as God has gave (John 3:16). Those words, “unto us” can & will still ring out as the words of praise as bells on Christmas day.   

How do we do this? Each person, ministry or area on the gift list is a mission YFM supports or is directly involved with. They provide the good news of Jesus to be spread in justice, mercy, grace and love. Select the items from the Be Christmas Gift List you will give as a family or individually. I would encourage you to give sacrificially. Your gifts are given to live out love for God and others, but consider giving to honor someone special in your life, letting them know of your gift.

Your Be Christmas Gift will be accepted now through Thursday, December 24, Christmas Eve. You can give online, mail your gift or bring it by the office (call first).   

 

Love,
