Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Mosaic Family,

What a joyful time of the year! I love the Christmas season because it allows us to slow down and to reflect on the greatest gift of all – Jesus Christ our Savior.

Isaiah 9:6 says… “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

Love, hope, joy, peace, counsel and care – every great gift has been given to us in the person of Jesus! My prayer for you, and your family, is that this Christmas is full deep connections with one another and with Jesus.

What if you and your family took time amidst the bustling holiday traditions to reflect on the great gift of Jesus? Here are a few suggestions:

  • Start your day alone with Him. Take a passage like Isaiah 9:6-7 and pray through each verse. Spending time with Jesus each day connects you to the one who created you.

  • Spend time with Jesus as a family. Before opening presents on Christmas day, read the story of Jesus from Luke 2:1-10 and reflect on the birth of Jesus.

  • Encourage each person. Before someone opens a gift, remind them they are loved by encouraging them in what you see in them and how God sees them!

Lastly, Carrie and I and our family are so thankful for each of you. Our prayer is that our love for Jesus and for others would deepen this holiday season as we intentionally take time to seek Him. May you receive a deeper revelation of His love for you this Christmas!

Merry Christmas,

Andrew and Carrie Bach

Jesus said the greatest commandment is to love God with all of our heart, soul, strength, and mind. He said the other is to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. We commit to loving God because He loves us. We commit to loving people the way Jesus does, selflessly and with integrity. This love compels us to take the good news of Jesus Christ to the world, inviting everyone to be a part of His family. As we love God and love people, the world will change.
