To all the Saints, Greetings,
Christmas provides a unique opportunity each year for us to re-focus on the greatest blessing ever given as we realize that the gift of God was not sent in the likeness of a message but in the likeness of men and that His gift initiated the greatest rescue in all of recorded history-the gracious, merciful redemption of sinful humanity. And it is out of that gift which flows every blessing we enjoy as the people of God who are His by faith in Jesus Christ.
A significant portion of that blessing is the community of believers which God, the Holy Spirit, has gathered in the assembly known as New Destiny Baptist Church. I am thankful to almighty God for each of you as you have committed yourselves to the cause of Christ and the furtherance of His kingdom; and I encourage you to continue to “let your light shine, ” with your love for one another and your selfless service.
We hope that you will have the opportunity to join with family and friends in celebrating the birth of the Savior during this blessed season and have a wonderful time in the Lord as you share His love; especially with those in need more so than others.
Karen and I pray that you and your families will have a blessed Christmas season, and a purpose-filled New Year, and that every member, friend, and visitor of this assembly be filled with the wonder of Mary, the obedience of Joseph, and the eagerness of the shepherds; and may you have joy “…for the Lord is come!”
A blessed Christmas to you all!
In His vineyard
Pastor and Sister Karen Green
