Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Please accept my sincere congratulations upon the Birth of Christ and the New Year 2016. These two holidays are interconnected, since the incarnation, death and resurrection of our Lord marked a new era in the history of humanity. Jesus Christ “Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness” (1Pet.2:24). As there came a new era in the history of humanity, so also in the life of every person there must come a new era – an era of new life of faith in Jesus Christ.
I wish you and your loved ones abundant joy in Christ this Christmas season and many blessings in the New Year.
