A very Happy Christmas to all of you and may God bless you abundantly at this time.
Although it is a time for rejoicing there is a great sadness about Christmas and I'm not referring to current events even though there is much sorrow there, it's that many many people don't know what Christmas is really all about, that many do know but don't understand it or don't care, many more know but don't believe it or want to do away with it altogether.
My personal sadness is that for years I haven't had the courage to tell folk what it's really all about for fear either of offending them or of what their reaction might be even though what it's about has everlasting consequences. I want to bring my silence to an end and if anyone is offended so be it, it won't be me but what I say that may cause offence. It's this simple message:
GOD LOVES YOU.
Yes I'm shouting it, read it again and again, GOD LOVES YOU. He loves you more than you can imagine and the realisation of that is the most marvellous thing that can happen to you, whoever you are.
