Jesus, the man for all seasons

The dramatic accounts of Jesus' birth in such humble circumstances in Bethlehem are remembered and celebrated by many people every year at Christmas. The Gospels tell us about the birth of Jesus, and much of his life, death and resurrection. The apostle John records that “these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his name.” John 20:30

When we read the Bible we learn that Jesus can guide and direct our lives at every stage, and in every situation, both good and bad. This knowledge gives us the capacity to make good decisions, to live fulfilling lives, and to find comfort and strength even in times of suffering and stress.

Belief in the life and teachings of Jesus brings benefits throughout life. It also requires faith and a commitment to obey God's commands. Through faith and obedience we can be saved from the consequences of our human imperfection and have the hope of living for ever in a changed and beautiful world - God's Kingdom on Earth

Jesus is not just for Christmas, but for ever.
