From the Pastor: December 1, 2017

WOW can you believe it…Thanksgiving is behind us and Christmas will soon be here.  With the Christmas season fast approaching our thoughts turn to many things.   We are thinking about the gifts, we are thinking about family and friends and even the decorations!  Speaking of decorations; I want to thank each and everyone who participated in the decorating of our sanctuary; it looks wonderful!

Of the many things on our minds with Christmas fast approaching the single most important thought is the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  With that in mind I will be presenting a three part series I have titled, “Why Did Jesus Come?”  In these messages we will be addressing three very important reasons God sent His One and only Son into this world.   I hope you will join us as we begin the Advent Season at South Marietta Street Baptist Church.

I close with this thought…do you realize Christmas is a very stressful time for so many people?  It is!  I suppose there are many reasons for the stress so may I simply remind you of this fact; Jesus loves you?  I don’t care who you are, what you’ve done, where you came from, what color your skin is or anything else; JESUS LOVES YOU!  So when you feel the stress and pressure of the world this Christmas try pausing for a moment and remember Jesus.  Remember that Jesus Christ, the Son of God died to be your Savior and oh how He loves you.  Remember Jesus and allow the TRUE meaning of Christmas to fill your soul and give you peace.

Merry Christmas and may God bless you,

Pastor Tommy
