Christmas Day
December 25, 2022

Christmas is a mystery because its true meaning is revealed only to those who seek it, while it is hidden to the rest. This mystery began even before the creation of the heavens and the earth, when nothing existed but God. At a moment of His own choosing and in a manner in which He determined, God manifested His Word, and through His Word, He created the whole universe and all things visible and invisible. He thought of it, willed…

God did not want to force man to love Him; rather,…

The Hope that Advent Brings

We are a hopeful people. We always hope for something to look forward to or something to live for. Some people hope for success, while some hope for security; some hope for the best for their children, while some hope for peace. Christians hope for the same things that most people hope for, but Christian hope is quite different because it has been confirmed and strengthened by faith in Jesus Christ; the Son of God who was born of a…

Meaning of Advent Candles

The candle of the First Sunday of Advent is called the Prophet’s Candle, which symbolizes HOPE. The prophet Isaiah foretold the birth of Christ the Lord: “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, a young woman shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14) This prophecy gave hope to a people who have been longing for a Messiah. For Christians, this prophecy has been fulfilled in Jesus Christ, who came into…

Unto you a SAVIOR is born

Unto you a SAVIOR is born (Luke 2:11) As we celebrate the birth of Christ, have you ever wondered: why did God become man? Here are some of the reasons: The Word became flesh so that God can fully reveal Himself to man: “In times past, God spoke in partial and various ways to our ancestors through the prophets; in these last days, He spoke to us through a Son, whom He made heir of all things and through whom…
