Dear Friend in Christ,
I write today to thank you and draw your attention to Christ the Lord in this glorious season of the celebration of His birth and mission.
Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice! Philippians 4:4
On behalf of all your friends at Family Radio, may I extend our warmest Christmas greetings! We pray God’s richest blessing upon you and your loved ones.
Our hearts burst with great joy as we reflect upon the true meaning of Christmas, as announced by the angel of the Lord to those shepherds abiding in the fields near Bethlehem:
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11
In John’s Gospel, this great news is mentioned as the Word becoming flesh:
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:14
In other words, God, the Creator of the universe, lowered Himself to become a man, and was named Jesus. But, He did it for a purpose, as Matthew 1:21 tells us:
…And thou shalt call his name JESUS: for He shall save his people from their sins.
Christ Jesus came to earth in obedience to His Father to bear witness of Himself and that He was sent by His Father:
But I have greater witness than that of John [the Baptist]: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. John 5:36
We are very honored at Family Radio to declare Christ the Savior- the true meaning of Christmas. Each year, we pre-empt regular programming to bring our listeners music which reminds us of the glorious arrival of Emmanuel –
“God with us” (Matthew 1:23).
Beginning Monday, December 7th, Family Radio presents “Christmas 2015”. Share with your friends, family, or even strangers – those who God brings along your path – the glorious message:
For unto YOU is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11
In addition we now have a radio station in New York, AM 1560, WFME. If you have friends or family in the New York area be sure and invite them to enjoy “Christmas 2015” as well.
We see God’s sustaining hand at Family Radio through the gifts of you, our dear friends. Your prayers, words of encouragement, and thoughtful gifts have enabled us to declare the Word of God to thousands of His children.
Thank you. May God cause His face to shine upon you, especially as we REJOICE together in Christ, the Lord! Know that we pray for you.
Gratefully yours in Christ,
