"And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2:8-12

Love has a Name and it's Jesus!

His coming as God in the flesh of a man was the ultimate act of love that gave us significance, security and satisfaction in the deep places of our lives!

Do you know that love?

Have you come to know Jesus as your Savior?

If not, why not?

All you have to do is receive His gift by confessing your sins and receiving His gift of forgiveness and eternal life!

Peace has a Name and it's Jesus!

When Jesus came as Savior, Messiah and Lord He came with the ability to help you find peace with your past, your present and the prospects of your future!

Peace is another gift that comes with the gift of salvation!

God not only promises peace He promises "perfect peace"!

"You (God) will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you." Isaiah 26:3

When you trust your past to God's mercy and grace you will have peace! When you trust your present to God's powerful presence you will have peace! Not just peace is possible but perfect peace!

And there's more!

If Jesus is your Savior, your Messiah and your Lord you can have a peace about your prospects of the days ahead! The Jesus Who helps you make peace with your past, and Who speaks peace to you presently will also put you at peace about your future! And not just peace but perfect peace!

Christmas brought the gift of peace! And each Christmas Season gives us a reminder that peace is possible for those who do not yet know that peace.

Peace has a name and it's Jesus!

Do you struggle with guilt and regret over your past? You can have peace with your past when you know Jesus as your Savior!

Are you troubled by a lack of peace in your life today? You can have a present peace when you know Jesus as your Messiah!

Do fears of your future practically paralyze you? You can have a perfect peace about your future when Jesus is your Lord!

Peace and love have a name and it's Jesus!
