Anchored In Him ~ 2017 Christmas Welcome





Merry Christmas and Seasons Greetings from Anchored In Him, may the blessings of the Lord be upon you.
With the Christmas Season of 2017 now upon us, remember it is a time for giving, sharing, and being thankful. We are reminded of the Birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who had a wonderful love for others. Jesus came to this Earth to offer his life as a perfect gift so we could experience eternal life through Him. So let us remember that Christmas should be a time for giving to others. We should not expect anything in return as we celebrate His birth.
"And the Angel said unto them, Fear not for, behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on the earth peace, good will toward men.
"
Luke 2:10 - 14

This is the true meaning  of Christmas! The greatest gift anyone could ever receive is a lasting relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. The gift of salvation is free to mankind, but was costly to Jesus Christ who ws crucified on Calvary for our sins.

What a gift my friend for you this Christmas by accepting the gift of Salvation from God, it is a gift that will last for eternity. The gifts we receive from our loved ones and friends are like hay and stubble we only have them for a short time and they do not last, but when we receive the gift of Ever Lasting Life by accepting Jesus Christ as our personal Savior from God, it is a gift that last thoughout eternity.

So often we become so busy with the hustle and bustle of doing "Christmas like things" that we forget what the true meaning of Christmas is. Without Christ the would be no Christmas. Let us show our love to our fellow man not only at Christmas, but throughout the year.

We hope to see you in church and bring a friend that is looking for the Gift of Eternal Life.


"And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe
wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger." Luke 2:12

When the shepherds went to the manger,
what they saw was a beautiful baby boy.
When the magi went to see the babe,
they saw a baby boy who was to be the
king of the Jews.

All they saw was a baby lying there.
But lying there was so much more than just a baby.
It was so much more than a king.

Lying in the manger was the eternal God.
It was love that was lying there.
It was a cross and an empty tomb in the manger.
It was a crucified Savior who would take away our sins.
Lying in the manger was the hope of mankind.
It was the one who would pay the ransom for mankind.
It was the one who would take our punishment and deliver
us from judgment.
It was the one who would free us from bondage.
Lying in the manger was the answer to all our problems.
It was a Lamb who would be sacrificed for our sins.
It was the Prince of Peace.
It was the one who would reconcile and mend our
broken relationship with the Heavenly Father.
It was the Healer of our bodies.
It was the way, the truth and the life.
Lying there was the one who had all power and
authority in heaven and earth.
It was the one who was there at the beginning and
by whom all things were made and exist.
It was the one who will be there at the end.

When you look at the manger, what do you see?
Do you only see a babe that is wrapped in swaddling clothes?
Do you only see a beautiful baby boy?
Do you only see a Christmas story?
If so, then look again.
There is so much more lying in the manger than a sweet little baby boy.

Is a baby the only thing you see when you look at the manger?
