3 Years ago, 217church spent our first Christmas together. It was an uncertain time, when we knew God wanted to use us to serve this community, but we weren’t sure exactly what it would look like. This Christmas we have the privilege of celebrating Jesus being faithful to this community, His church, and our families. These ornaments on our tree represent God’s faithfulness through every year of our young church. Here is my prayer for you this Christmas…
“For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit.” Ephesians 4:13-16
My prayer For You Is To Remember…
1. You Have His Name – You are a part of God’s family and you bear his name. This is no small deal as Jesus has adopted us as His own. Because He is with us nothing separates us from Him!
2. Your Father Is Rich – Because Jesus is rich in glory, we are rich in glory as well. We have an inheritance in Christ that is impossible to measure but he communicates it with the gift of Jesus through eternal life.
3. You Are Strong With His Spirit – Power comes from the Spirit living in you. No matter what you face, how much you have, or how broken a relationship may be, may you depend on Him through this season.
For those of you who are local in the Central Jersey area, You are invited to join us tonight for our Christmas Eve Family Services at 6 PM at the AMC theater 13.
We love you all,
Josh, Summer, Lilly, Titus & Lydia
