The wonderful atmosphere of Christmas was felt this year with a special force in the “Way of Peace” church in Lushnje. Throughout December, believers followed a reading calendar that read a passage from the Bible to follow closely the birth and life of Jesus Christ. We are very grateful to God for all the believers who have contributed throughout the month with their joy in participating in the activities organized by the church for the celebration of Christmas.
Christmas this year had a special thrill because it was celebrated with the children of Tomorrow Club in all age groups ranging from ages 3-5 years, 6-9 years, 10-12 years, 13-15 years. According to their age, each of the children received the Christmas message, and a representative from each group was part of the great Christmas service. The Christmas ministry in our church had the wonderful message that God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten son, Jesus Christ, to reconcile with us and give us abundant life.
Our great joy was that we were together with the church believers joined by dozens and dozens of unbelievers celebrating to attend the birth of our Lord. Through songs of worship, through dramas, dances, through love and friendship conveyed by every believer the message of Christmas that God is love to descended to earth, each of us individually conveyed not only to the believers but also to those who came to church for the first time.
Our prayer now is that every person who has heard the Christmas message will follow Christ. Christ came to earth for the salvation of the whole world, and it is God’s desire for every person to be saved. So thank God that He has made us part of His wonderful plan.
