WORDSEARCH FOR CHRISTMAS

Christmas is nearly here! Two thousand

years ago the Jews were longing for the

coming of their Messiah. The Old Testament

had promised that when He came, He

would preach good news to the poor, bind

up the broken hearted, proclaim freedom

for the captives and release from darkness

for the prisoners, proclaim the year of the

Lord’s favour, comfort all who mourn and

to bestow on His people a crown of beauty

instead of ashes. Jesus did all those things.

He was and is the Son of God, and whoever

has seen Him has seen the Father. Whoever

believes in Him will have the best gift of all

– His Spirit within them, which gives them

eternal life.
