Key Verse:

That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9 NIV

Christmas Letter to Mount Olive
By Pastor Jon Haakana

It occurred to me as I settled down to write this Christmas letter to you that the greatest thing we need in our lives, this and every season, is to know that God is with us. This surely is the message of Christmas and thus the message of our faith and for our life. I love the way one writer put it:

“What begins in the stable ends in our salvation. That’s why we celebrate Christmas, and it’s the best and only reason the human heart needs.” (Charles J. Chaput)

Jesus is with us! This is what our children really need to know. Jesus is not only the Babe of Bethlehem, but He is also the Son who was born to live for our righteousness, and to die for our sins. Christ is the missing piece to life. Without Him our lives are incomplete. With Him our lives, even in their most complex or disappointing parts, make sense.
