Give Them Jesus!

Christ is come to save the people Whom He has created
and whom He loves.

Eastern Hymn
for the Sunday before the Nativity

Martin Luther, the Reformer, strongly challenged the church of his day (16th Century) over unbiblical practices like indulgences, that were drastically clouding over the Good News. It’s  recorded that Luther’s spiritual father at the time pleaded with him: “But Martin, if we get rid of all these things – the practices so many common people cling to – what will we give them in their place?”

Luther replied firmly and intently, “Why, Sir, we will give them Christ! Yes, we will give them Christ!”

This Sunday is the beginning of Advent – the season that leads us to the Celebration of the Nativity of Jesus.
“In Christ, God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. (2 Corinthians 5)

“Give them Jesus!”

The Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love of Jesus!
Not religious rules, but Jesus!
Not shame, but the Healing of Jesus!
Not a new organization, but a Community of Jesus!

Joy to the world!
