During the Four Sundays of Advent, Gafcon will be posting short reflections based on a verse from the Bible to celebrate this season which is so significant for all of us who confess our faith in Christ Jesus. Follow us and share these messages in your churches.
Romans 5: 17. For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God's abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!
All have sinned. All have fallen short of the Glory of God.
As we approach Christmas, our minds and hearts should be increasingly filled with gratitude for the one who became flesh, dwelt among us, died and rose again.
A savior has been given to us! An abundant gift of grace, indeed!
Through the transgression of one man, sin entered the world, but thanks to the perfect obedience of one man, Jesus Christ, we can be forgiven, saved, justified, and reconciled to the Father!
This is the real Good News!
Pray with us:
Father, we come to you with a grateful heart that you have given us your only son, our savior!
Grant us the grace to spread this wonderful good news, so that the world knows the great Grace that has reached us.
In Jesus' name, Amen!
