encouragement Christmas2

“...that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

-John 3:16

Now, less than a week from Christmas, we are once again reminded of the reason for the season. If everyone could grasp by faith the truth of John 3:16, discouragement and despair would give way to hope and peace. "Whoever" shows the breadth and depth of the Lord's offer of salvation. There is no exception; there is no sin too great. The simple truth is that God, in His great love, has given His Son so that if we believe in Him, we may have forgiveness of sin and will never perish. Do not let your own failures or discouragements overcome you. There is something greater for you. You shall never perish! You already have life eternal! In this astounding truth, we celebrate the birth of Christ. Be encouraged!
