Many of us are familiar with the scene from “A Charlie Brown Christmas” in which Linus explains what Christmas is all about and quotes from the book of Luke. That scene and the message of the beloved movie has caused many Christians to support it.

If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
