Christmas is such a vivid reminder of the goodness of God—the celebration of God fulfilling His promise made hundreds of years earlier that a child would be born who would be both God and man and ultimately deliver His people from their sins and bridge the gap between God and man. The goodness of God at Christmas reveals the goodness of God for eternity.

The Goodness of God at Christmas: God is good all the time!

As we come to the end of another year—no matter what this year has brought us, the greatest gift in this year and the next is that we have a good God. His goodness is the light on our darkest days, our hope for the here and now, and our joy in the bright future we have in Christ. As we celebrate Christmas this year, we want to wish you a joyous Christmas fixed on God’s goodness.

This year was a landmark for the Stewardship Advisory Group as we reflected on the goodness of God in our company: 40 years of serving God’s people in wise stewardship—all for God’s glory. It was such a blessing to be able to visit with many of you as we opened our doors to celebrate, and we look forward to future events. Thank you for the privilege of letting us serve you! Some pictures are below from this special event, as well as a Christmas poem written by Denise Pass on our staff and a delicious Christmas recipe by Abigail Cox on our staff.

The Goodness of God

When the lows are more than the highs
And my breath is filled with sighs,
Even as tears fill my eyes,
This is my greatest prize:
The goodness of God.

When my plans capsize,
And I don’t know the answers to my whys,
Even as desire dies,
I know where my hope lies:
The goodness of God.

For life could never comprise
The joy in which my soul relies,
That Christ came to die and rise
And will return in the skies.
This is the goodness of God.
