Bible Study Summary:


If our greatest need had been information, God would have sent us an educator.

If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent us a scientist.

If our greatest need had been money, God would have sent us an economist.

If our greatest need had been pleasure, God would have sent us an entertainer.


But our greatest need was forgiveness, so God sent us a Savior: – “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” – Matthew 1:21; “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.” – Luke 2:11.


Especially during the Christmas season we must urgently tell hurting and broken people who need a loving touch and words of encouragement that Jesus is the only source of sustained joy, peace, happiness, and salvation: “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” – Acts 4:12


Oh holy night the stars are brightly shinning,

it is the night of our dear Savior’s birth;

long lay the world in sin and error pinning,

till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,

for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

Fall on your knees oh hear the angel voices,

oh night divine, oh night when Christ was born.

O night, O holy night, O night divine!


Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,

with glowing heart by His cradle we stand;

So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming,

here came the wise men from Orient land.

The king of kings lay thus in lowly manger,

in all our trials born to be our friend;

He knows our need, to our weakness is no stranger,

 Behold your King, before Him lowly bend!

Behold your King, before Him lowly bend!.


Truly He taught us to love one another,

His law is love and His gospel is peace.

Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother,

And in His name, all oppression shall cease.

Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raising,

Let all within us praise His holy name,

Christ is the Lord, oh praise His name forever,

His power and glory evermore proclaim,

His power and glory evermore proclaim.

If God has spoken to your heart after reading the sermon The Story of Jesus is still the Greatest Story that can ever be told.” right now talk to God about what He has spoken to you.


Do you have the assurance that one day you will go to heaven? If you have no assurance that you know Jesus Christ, then I trust you will decide to accept Him as your personal Savior. The Bible tells us in


Acts 16:31, “…Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved…”

Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”


This prayer is here for those who need to ask Jesus to be their personal Savior: “I do want to go to Heaven. I know I am a sinner, and I do believe Jesus Christ died for me. I realize I cannot buy this great salvation, nor can I earn it. Knowing Jesus died on the cross and arose from the grave to pay my sin debt and to purchase my salvation, I do now trust Him as my Savior, and from this moment on I am completely depending on Him for my salvation.”


If you made the decision to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, please let me know. Please send an e-mail to and I will send you some literature that will help you in your Christian life.
