Message from Ps Carl Sepssy:
JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON!
“Christ was content with a stable when he was born so that we could have a mansion when we die” Source Unknown. C.H. Spurgeon once said “He that made man was made man.”
Matthew 1:21-23 “And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which is translated, “God with us” .” Martin Luther said “The mystery of the humanity of Christ, that He sunk Himself into our flesh, is beyond all human understanding”.
For God to become human is no small thing:
“If our greatest need had been information, God would have sent us an educator; If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent us a scientist; If our greatest need had been money, God would have sent us an economist; If our greatest need had been pleasure, God would have sent us an entertainer; But our greatest need was forgiveness, so God sent us a Saviour”.
We believe this statement regarding the Person and work of our Lord Jesus Christ:
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal future return to earth in power and glory.
We wish you a blessed Christmas and a prosperous New Year from Ps Carl and Rhiannon, Ps Rose and Frank, Peter and Macarena and the Team from Pakenham Christian Church.
