WHAT A GLORIOUS DAY TO BE ALIVE. IT IS A DAY WE CAN CELEBRATE THE BIRTH OF OUR SAVIOR. I KNOW THAT SOME HAVE NOT RECEIVED HIM AS THEIR SAVIOR BUT THAT DOES NOT TAKE AWAY THE FACT THAT HE IS THE SAVIOR. HE WAS BORN TO DIE FOR US. YOU MIGHT SAY WE WERE ALL BORN TO DIE. WE DIDN'T HAVE ANY CHOICE....JESUS DID. HE CHOSE TO BE BORN SO HE COULD DIE FOR US ALL SO OUR SINS WOULD BE FORGIVEN. THAT IS A BIG DIFFERENCE.
WE CAN'T EVEN BEGIN TO IMAGINE WHAT HE HAD TO GO THROUGH ALL HIS LIFE. JUST KNOWING WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN WOULD HAVE BEEN BAD ENOUGH BUT WHAT ABOUT BEING REJECTED ALL YOUR LIFE BY YOUR OWN CREATION.
(EPHESIANS 3:9And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:) AND (COLOSSIANS 1: 16For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:)
I HOPE EVERYONE REMEMBERS WHAT THIS DAY IS ALL ABOUT. DO YOU HAVE A PRESENT UNDER THE TREE FOR JESUS? IT IS HIS BIRTHDAY, YOU KNOW. IF YOU DON'T, GIVE HIM YOUR LIFE, RIGHT NOW. IF YOU ARE NOT SAVED, ASK HIM TO BE YOUR SAVIOR. IF YOU ARE SAVED, GIVE HIM THE REST OF YOUR LIFE TO DO WITH WHAT HE WANTS. THOSE WOULD BE WONDERFUL PRESENTS. PROMISE HIM YOU WILL START STUDYING THE BIBLE AND REALLY MEAN IT. PROMISE HIM YOU WILL TELL SOMEONE ABOUT JESUS AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK OR MORE IF YOU ARE REALLY SINCERE. THESE PRESENTS ARE WORTH FAR MORE THAN ANYTHING YOU COULD HAVE UNDER THAT TREE.
JESUS REALLY LOVES US. I SAY IT THAT WAY BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE SAY IT BUT DON'T REALLY THINK ABOUT IT. WE ALL KNOW JOHN 3:16 AND MOST OF US CAN SAY IT WORD FOR WORD BUT DO WE REALLY KNOW THE DEPTH OF THAT PASSAGE? ONE OF MY MOST FAVORITE PASSAGES IS ALSO IN JOHN WHERE JESUS IS PRAYING FOR ME. HE IS ALSO PRAYING FOR YOU BUT I LIKE TO MAKE IT PERSONAL. TO THINK THAT JESUS, PRAYED TO HIS FATHER FOR ME. I WILL LEAVE YOU WITH HIS WORDS.
JOHN 17:24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
