The cross of Calvary and the Resurrection of Jesus have become a sure foundation and solid anchor for my faith. Years ago, when I bowed my knees before the Lord and confessed all my sins to Him, the power of His Resurrection worked complete forgiveness and release of my guilt caused by all my trespasses. I am very thankful to God for eternal life in Christ. If Jesus had not died and risen from the grave, our faith would indeed be senseless and in vain.

Have we gradually accepted that this is what Christmas is all about?
