1985 Christmas Letter to Pearl Ginther
Dear Ones (Relations & Friends)
Hebrews 12: 2
He left Heaven's glory because a sinner like me needed a Savior.
He took the punishment for my sin and gave me His righteousness.
His conversation with the woman at the well always blesses my heart, as the Pharisees were always asking Him to prove that he was the Messiah that they were looking and waiting for.
He ignored their questions but when someone truly wanted to to know Him:
John 4: 24, 25, & 26
Jesus said: "God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth."
The woman said to Him, "I know the One who is called Christ is coming, and when He comes He will make everything plain to us."
Jesus said to her, "I who am talking to you am He."
She believed her sins were forgiven and she invited others to come to see and hear Him. They came and they believed.
We [too] came, heard His word, repented and believed. Now [we] rejoice when we can share the good news of salvation with others.
For a blessed Christmas let us read our Bibles from cover to cover in '86 and practice Philippians 4: 4:
"Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice. Let everyone see that you are unselfish and considerate. Remember that the Lord is coming soon. Don't worry about anything, instead pray about everything and don't forget to thank God for his answers. If you do you will experience God's peace which is more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet as you rest in Him."
