The Christmas season is for many a time of making lists--gift lists, to-do lists, party lists. In this message, Dr. Merritt communicates God's own Christmas list through what is arguably the most well-known verse in all of the Bible, John 3:16. Learn what it means to be on God's Christmas list, and to receive the greatest Christmas gift of all through a relationship with His Son.
"We will not wake up on Christmas morning, go to the living room, sit down, look at each other and say, 'Your gift will be here ten years from now or twenty years from now.' No, you get the gift on Christmas day, because that is what Christmas is all about. Christmas reminds us that we can have God as our life right now--immediately." -- Dr. Merritt
