Key Verse:

“He must increase, but I must decrease” John 3:30 (KJV)

Merry Christmas!
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 (Immanuel—Matt.1:23). This surely is the message of Christmas and thus the message of our faith and for our life.

Jesus is with us! This is what our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren really need to know. Jesus is not only the Babe of Bethlehem, but He is also the Son of God 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.

Jesus is with us! This is what our junior high and high school youth and college age young people need to know. In the middle of their trials, identity issues, betrayals by friends, struggles to find their way in the world, and dreams for a great future, the Babe of Bethlehem, now the enthroned Christ of all creation, is with them. His salvation gives hope to them and to you.
