Why Are We Closed on Sunday Mornings?
This may come as a surprise from a person who sells Christmas trees, but Arlana and I came to realize many years ago that Christmas is not primarily about giving gifts, decorating the house,having family dinners, office parties or even finding the “perfect Christmas tree.”
We came to understand that Christmas was about the “perfect gift” that God sent to Earth because he knew that we needed a Savior. We both realized that, because of our sinful natures, we were separated from a perfect and holy God. We needed a way to pay the debt for our sins so that we could be with God, in Heaven, someday.
Arlana and I both accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior when we were about 20 years old. We understood that Jesus died on a cross as payment for our sins, and rose on the third day to prove his power over death. As Born Again Christians, we know, beyond any doubt, that when we die we will be with God in Heaven. That is not due to anything we have done on Earth, but totally by God’s grace alone. That is something to celebrate!
On Sunday mornings we go to church to honor God and to thank Him for the perfect gift he gave us, salvation through Jesus Christ. He offers the same gift to anyone who would believe in Jesus Christ as their own personal Savior.
So trim that tree, decorate the house, have family over, but in all the holiday hustle and bustle, don’t forget the real meaning of Christmas, Jesus Christ, Our Savior, was born. Will you accept Him as your Savior, too? We’d love to talk to you about how you can begin a new life in Jesus.
Just ask us!
Peter and Arlana Richardson
