A new edition especially for Advent and Christmas in this best-selling series of gift booksGod’s Little Book of Christmas brings the childlike spirit of the season back into your heart, amid all the busyness.‘Christmas is a bridge – use it to restore lost relationships, renew failing ones and cross over to make new ones.’As children we look forward to Christmas as a time of great excitement, but, as adults, the frenetic preparations can overwhelm us, distracting us from the joy of the season.For many this is one of the most wonderful times of the year. While today, unfortunately, Christmas has become overly commercialised, the real reason for the season will always remain. Christ is the saviour of the world. He left the adoration and praise of his angels to receive insult and rejection from his own created. He suffered and died so that we can have life. Why did He do all this? To save a dying world from the consequences of sin, to give us hope and an eternal future. Christ came because He loves us.Christmas is really about acknowledging what Christ has done, giving thanks that he came and looking forward to a time when he will return so that one day we can all share in his heavenly riches.
