I’m praying for those who read this post: May you receive Christ’s blessings to you this season. “Please note: Salvation is God-given, God-driven, God-empowered, and God-originated. The gift is not from man to God. It is from God to man.”*
I hope that you will make time to be quiet and talk to the Lord in prayer, thanking Him for the gift of God which is eternal life through Jesus’ life, His death which paid the penalty for our sin, and His resurrection which indicates to us that eternal life is His to give.
If you have any questions about what the life of Christ really means, I invite you to write a reply to me, and I’ll write back.
Isn’t it interesting that no matter what people think of Jesus, His name is everywhere. Christmas, Christmas, Christmas.
Christ-mass woos us to come, worship Him. Jesus is all the goodness, the beauty, the excellence, the truth (reality), the kindness, the strength, the love for which the deepest longings of our hearts yearn.
Let your heart call out to Jesus. Read the words of Jesus in the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John in the Bible! Read them over and over. You’ve never heard of anyone like Jesus. Let your heart love Him. He says, “Come unto me, all you who are weary…, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).
You can look for other gods. You can try to warm yourself by other fires. No one cleanses the soul and enlivens the spirit like Jesus — the radiance of God Himself.
May Christmas truly mean “Christ worship” to you this season.
Christ-blessings to you,
