You’ve probably heard it said, “Jesus is the reason for the season.” Jesus Christ is the heart of Christmas; His birth is central to our belief that He is Emmanuel, God with us. “God with us” means that we’re not alone on earth, that there is supernatural power, help and love available to us through faith.
Jesus is more than just the reason for Christmas, though. Here at bcmPEACE, Jesus is the reason we do everything we do. The Bible says that we love because He loved us first. When we distribute food to the hungry, or clothes to the cold; when we teach parents how to set good examples and make good choices for their children, or teach someone how to use a computer; when we provide affordable housing or helpful referrals, we are loving people with the same love God has shown us through Jesus Christ.
John 3:16 says, “God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son so that anyone who believes in Him will not decay and die, but live forever.” The next verse is so encouraging. John 3:17 assures us, “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” 1 John 3:1 declares, “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!”
Not only at Christmas, but all year long, at bcmPEACE Jesus is THE REASON. He is the reason we love our community. He is the reason we serve all year long. You could say that He is the Reason for all Seasons! #bcmPEACE #BeThePeace @bcmPEACE
