Christmas Begins with God

Christmas Begins with God

Simple Christmas
“Christmas Begins with God”
John 3:16

A simple Christmas starts with soaking in the foundational truths of Christmas.
Christmas is the story of:
God, unapproachable in his holiness
Initiating a saving relationship with sinful people
By taking on flesh and becoming one of us
Christmas is the story of God with us.
