Freedom Kids present the first Christmas. Pastor Dennis reads about Louie and Littlest Lamb and gives a message on who you know.

What was the first Christmas present? 

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

Some think that God adds up our right and wrong and the result is what gets you to Heaven (or not). But getting to Heaven is not about what you do but it’s about who you know!

The Pharisees tried to be the best they could and even made laws to earn favor with God. Nicodemus served every hour to be saved . . . But Jesus says that it’s who you know.

Some think that they’ve done so much bad that it’s too late for them but look at the thief on the cross hanging beside Jesus. He says, “Remember me.” Jesus replied, “Today you will be with me in paradise.” The thief could not do anything to earn salvation but on his last breath, he knew Jesus. It's who you know!

Jesus didn’t come to rub our nose in our inability to be good enough but He came because He knew we couldn’t do it. So He paid for our debt. First, see and believe in Jesus, then obey. Obedience means the power of God in your life to live your Him. Obedience comes and good happens as a result but not to earn salvation.

Christmas is not about Jesus coming once but that He is coming again. He will meet everyone face to face. Settle it today. Accept His gift. 

Have your religious works been misunderstood by relatives or friends?  

How do you explain belief and faith first, then your obedience and works follow?
