For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal  life.   


Lord, You are our precious God. Even when evil and sin run wild and, for the moment, destroy life with sickening contempt for You, hold Your people with all good graces and make us firm in our resolve to proclaim Your good news. Let not the darkness of this world snuff out Your heavenly Light, Jesus. Be with ALL those who are grieving and assure them that You are bringing all things together in Your name. For Jesus' sake. Amen

knew that only 

God forgives sins. 

And God does it for free. 

Luther wrote his ideas on a

piece of paper. 

He wrote 95 items. 

He nailed his paper on the

main door of the Castle

Church in Wittenberg 

on October 31, 1517. 

Luther's Ninety-five Theses 

challenged the sales of

indulgences and so 

began the reformation.

Martin had a problem.

It was Christmas Eve, and 

he still hadn’t been able to

get enough money to buy gifts 

for his six children.

Ministers’ salaries only went so far.

After all the family was asleep in bed, 

Martin sat by the flame of a 

single candle in the living room. 

Finally he got out a piece of 

parchment and a pen. 

He might not be able to buy presents, 

but he certainly had something to give. 

He set to work. 

Finally, in the wee hours of the morning 

he blew out the candle and waited for daybreak.

A few hours later he gathered 

his family around him and 

gave them their gift.

Placing his youngest daughter in his lap 

he sang these words for the first time:

“Away in a manger, no crib for His bed,

The little Lord Jesus 

laid down His sweet head;

The stars in the sky looked 

down where He lay.

The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay...”

More than 460 years have passed since 

Martin Luther first

gave those words as a present to his children.

They remain today as a gift 

he left for the world.

Two thousand years ago, God also gave a 

precious gift to his children.

It is the gift that Martin Luther wrote about –

Jesus himself.

And that gift lives through eternity.
