As I was growing up, our manger was always under our Christmas tree. That's probably the right place for it - since, in a real sense, the shadow of a tree loomed over the manger that first Christmas morning. You can't really understand Christmas without Good Friday - where this sinless Son of God was nailed to a tree He created, by men He created.

The Bible says, "He bore our sins in His body on the tree" (1 Peter 2:24). Jesus absorbed the death penalty of hell for every wrong thing you've done - to rescue you. That's how much He loves you.

In the words of the carol, "What Child Is This": "Nails, spear shall pierce Him through, the cross be borne for me, for you." You've had your Christmases, celebrating Christ's coming. Have you ever had your Good Friday, where you stand at His cross and put your life and your sin in His hands? If want to belong to Jesus Christ, call us at 888-Need-Him or chat with us live at

No one loved you like He does.
