“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” –John 1:29

 

Jesus is recognized here by John the Baptist as not only “the Lamb of God,” but also as the one “who takes away the sin of the world.”  What is sin?  It’s the part of our lives that is refuse.  It’s the spiritually undesirable part.  It’s trash.  What do we do with our physical trash?  We contain it, and put it to the curb; then a trash collector comes and disposes of it to where we never see it again.  This is what Jesus does with our “spiritual trash.” He collects it from our lives in the form of forgiveness, and then disposes of it to where we never see it again.  We need to do our part by taking it to the curb through confessing our sins to Christ, and He will collect our trash.

 

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for giving your Son to take away our sins.  Help us to understand your love, and give us the courage to confess our sins to you.  Empower us to live lives that are pleasing to you.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

The Holidays Are Coming!

 

CHRISTMAS GIFT DONATIONS NEED TO START COMING IN BEFORE THANKSGIVING because all of the gifts for the Jesus' Birthday Party must be wrapper by the first week in December.

 

Christmas is about giving and each year it is amazing to see how you open your hearts to reach out in very special ways to those who are homeless or in need.  All of the adult and children's clothing, blankets, toys, and games distributed at our Christmas parties are donated.  Last year, more than 700 gifts were given out to 213 people in need:  135 at the Jesus' Birthday Party (76 children and 59 adults), 65 at the Drop-Ins Give-Away (45 adults and 19 children), and 13 Mission Residents.
