For the problem of sin, God made a promise that He would send a Savior. His ultimate plan for all creation culminates in the incarnation--the birth in human form--of His Son, Jesus. In this message, Dr. Merritt shows how God's promise of a Savior is fulfilled in Christ. At the very first Christmas, God gave the world the greatest gift ever. When you open up His gift and receive His gift, you enjoy a fullness of life in Him and an eternity with Him as well.
"People are looking for satisfaction in the wrong places. Neither prosperity nor possessions will bring you lasting satisfaction. Nothing except a personal relationship with God can bring you true and total satisfaction. Nothing can give that to you except Jesus Christ." --Dr. Merritt
