Can you believe it's December already? Christmas will be here before you know it. Eternal life is indeed the gift of God and we are saved by simple faith that confesses Jesus as Savior and Lord. May that never be confused with a cheap believism that never really believes and a receivism that never receives. Salvation began with the coming of Christ but it continues with coming to him. The Christian must also be a disciple, and that costs everything. May we, like the wise men of old, come to him in repentance and faith. May we too worship and bow down before him as we confess him as Lord of all. May we give him our very best gifts just as God gave us his very best.
