Advent, coming to serve

“Christmas is about the coming of Christ into the world

Advent

Even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

MARK 10:45

2015-11-28 20.11.34

 

 

 

Christmas is about the coming of Christ into the world.

Open your heart to receive the best present imaginable: Jesus giving himself to die for you and to serve you all the rest of eternity. Receive this. Turn away from self-help and sin. Become like little children. Trust him. Trust him. Trust him with your life.”
