CHRISTMAS 2010 CHRISTMAS PRAYER

“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45 “No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man. Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.” John 3:13-14

Many CUs across the country feel nervous, weak yet also excited as they try to share what Christmas is all about. It is the Gospel that has compelled them and they have asked if you could partner in praying for them as they ‘give a reason for the hope they have’ this season! Merry Christmas, Claire, Karen and The Festive Team

Isn’t this an incredible message? Whilst family get-togethers, cinnamon candles, cheap cashews and some epic movies make a special Christmas… they just don’t compare to what it’s really about. An outrageous love story of cosmic proportions – the King of Heaven came to serve, to give His life so we may know life now and life that stretches into eternity. Incredible!
