As we begin our preparation for the Christmas season we are reminded that our entire life is built upon faith that has been given by God to all who believe. At Christmas time we are reminded that it was by faith alone that the baby in the manger one day came into our heart. As the baby Jesus was a miracle to be accepted by faith on that first Christmas morn, so are we compelled by faith to receive the miracle of salvation today. Remember, we are saved by grace, through faith, it is a gift of God. This means, faith is a gift of God.
