A Child is Born

A child was born many years ago who would change the world.  Isaiah, the prophet, said it like this through the inspiration of God. 

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of His government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over His kingdom,establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever."

Because a child was born, we have a bridge back to God.

Because a child was born, we can experience the love and forgiveness of our Heavenly Father.

Because a child was born, we can walk in victory.

Because a child was born, we have the peace of God that surpasses all understanding.

Because a child was born, we have harmony in our home.

Because a child was born, we can have eternal life.

Because a child was born, we have a friend that walks with us through the storms and trials of life.

Because a child was born, history was changed.

Because a child was born, we can bring hope to those who have none.

Because a child was born, we can find meaning and purpose in life.

Because a child was born, we have Good News to share with the next generation.

Because a child was born, we can be born again.

Because a child was born, the miraculous can happen.

Because a child was born...this Christmas season, let's be intentional about sharing with kids what Christmas is really all about - it's about a child that was born.

Because a child was born...let's teach children and families that our best Christmas gift should be given to Him.

Because a child was born...let's slow down from the busyness of the season to worship Him.

Because a child was born...let's celebrate!

I pray you and your children's ministry will have your best Christmas ever.  I pray that kids and their parents will come and hear the message of hope you are sharing.  I pray that new volunteers will flood into your ministry.  I pray that many unchurched kids and parents will come and have their lives changed by the Gospel.  I pray that the Holy Spirit will rest upon your services and outreaches.  I pray that you will come out of this Christmas season refreshed and ready for 2019.

Just think, the reason I am writing this is because a child was born.  The reason we share the same vision for reaching the next generation, is because a child was born. 

A child was born!  Let's celebrate Him...our glorious and wonderful Savior.

Praying you and your ministry will have your best Christmas ever!
