New this week – December 8, 2019

From the Board of Stewardship

The Rich Ruler was unable to part with his wealth in order to give himself completely to Jesus (Luke 18:18-25). Christ gave up all the glories of Heaven so that He could give Himself completely to us.  The Rich Fool hoarded his wealth and built bigger barns to store it all (Luke 12:13-21), Jesus emptied Himself and gave up everything to save us.  “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for [our] sakes He became poor, so that [we] through His poverty might become rich” (2 Corinthians 8:9).  This Christmas let us thank God for the Bethlehem-gift of His Son and seek His grace to give as He gave.
