Christmas!

Hebrews 13:8
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."

The past lies behind us!
A bright future appears!
All because "JESUS WAS BORN!"

Our celebration of the season must remain clear.
Never allow the cares of this world to distract nor blur your vision of Christmas!

"WE CELEBRATE THE BIRTH OF JESUS, THE SON OF GOD!"
"WHO SOON WOULD SAVE HIS PEOPLE FROM THEIR SINS!"

Guess what?
He completed His task when He spoke those blessed words:
"IT IS FINISHED!!!"

Therefore, today, we who believe celebrate His redemptive work on the cross.
But in this season of merriment, we remember where it all began.
In a humble manger.
Where no one was present to cheer His arrival.
Where only a few would experience the majestic entrance of our Godly King into a world that would ultimately reject Him!

"HIS LOVE FOR HUMANITY REMAINS JUST AS STRONG TODAY AS IT DID ON THAT DAY WHEN HE TOOK HIS FIRST BIRTH, AS WELL AS WHEN HE BREATHED HIS LAST!"

THANK YOU, JESUS, FOR THE SALVATION THAT YOU HAVE PROVIDED FOR ALL WHO CALL ON YOUR NAME!
(This is the true reason we celebrate Your Birth, or better known to the world as CHRISTMAS!)

"LET'S TELL PEOPLE WHY CHRISTMAS HOLDS SUCH SIGNIFICANCE!"
"DON'T EVER ALLOW ITS TRUE MEANING TO ESCAPE THEIR EARS!"

3 John 1: 4

"I have no greater joy than this: to hear that my children are walking in the truth."
~ (3 John 1: 4)

Help us Lord, despite whatever our circumstances, to focus not on what the world has made Christmas to be, but on the joy of the birth of Jesus Christ, the author of Christmas. Amen

1 Timothy 3: 1

"This saying is trustworthy:'If anyone aspires to be an overseer, he desires a noble work."

James 3: 1

""Not many should become teachers, my brothers, knowing that we who teach will receive a stricter judgement." ~ (James 3: 1)

Have a blessed day family. Amen.

PRAY!

Psalm 24:7-8
"Lift up your heads, O gates,
And be lifted up, O ancient doors,
That the King of glory may come in!
Who is the King of glory?
The Lord strong and mighty,
The Lord mighty in battle."

No matter what you are going through today,
The Lord wants you to know that;
"HE IS FOR YOU!"
"NOTHING WILL OVERCOME YOU!" (Though it may seem that way!)
"YOU SERVE A MIGHTY GOD!"
"WHO IS JEALOUS FOR YOU!"

"HELP IS ON ITS WAY!"
"JUST BELIEVE & YOU WILL SEE THE HAND OF GOD!"

I sense that there is someone out there in need of these words at this very moment.
I want to urge the Christian community to take a moment & pray for this person.

"GOD IS ON YOUR SIDE!"
"DON'T GIVE UP!"

Vision!

Proverbs 29:18
"Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained,
But happy is he who keeps the law."

"PEOPLE WHO WALK AIMLESSLY THROUGH LIFE FAIL TO UNDERSTAND THE PURPOSE FOR WHICH THEY WERE CREATED!"

"VISION CREATES PURPOSE!"
"PURPOSE ESTABLISHES DISCIPLINE!"
"DISCIPLINE ULTIMATELY RESULTS IN FULFILLMENT!"

Therefore, today, I want to challenge you to:
"GET ENVISIONED BY DIVING INTO GOD'S WORD!"
"FAITH COMES BY HEARING & HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD!"

"GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE!"
But the question is;
"HAVE YOU FIGURED IT OUT YET?"

The good news is YOU CAN!!!
All you have to do is:
"REPENT OF YOUR SINS!"
"ASK FORGIVENESS!"
"INVITE JESUS INTO YOUR HEART AS LORD & SAVIOR!"
"THEN, SEEK GOD'S WILL FOR YOUR LIFE THROUGH HIS WORD!"
"FINALLY, ALLOW THE HOLY SPIRIT TO BE YOUR GUIDING LIGHT!"

Jeremiah 3: 15

"Then I will give you shepherds after My own heart, who will feed you on knowledge and understanding." ~ (Jeremiah 3: 15)
 
"When you find the church you're supposed to be in, you will recognize the pastor's voice as an important spiritual authority in your life." ~ Stormie Omartian
