The Gift of Christ | John McCants
The love of material things often steals our attention. This leads us to focus on growing our collection of possessions, even thinking that those items can somehow provide authentic, deep life satisfaction. And when our idea of Christmas revolves around a misplaced focus on material things, we get the wrong idea. In this message we’ll see how God shows us that Jesus is overwhelmingly more valuable than anything else we could imagine.
