Christmas

WEEKLY MEDITATION 21-27 DECEMBER 2020

Father, we ask that you help us understand your word through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and open our hearts and minds so that we may incorporate your word and will into our lives for your glory. Please give us peace and comfort in these difficult times. We know you are still in control and will use these difficult times for your good. We ask that you heal and help those in need and who are ill. Forgive us if we interpret your silence as a lack of your love. We know you will answer if we only stay faithful. In Jesus’ name…

– Amen

He Came Near. Christmas Message

John 3:16 …For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

As Christmas dawns across the world, we wish you and your family a very blessed and peaceful Christmas and New Year.  We also ask that you keep those less fortunate then yourselves, those who are persecuted for their Christian faith, those that are lonely and suffering, those in need and all those who need prayer in their lives, in your prayers.

“We have troubles all around us, but we are not defeated. We do not know what to do, but we do not give up the hope of living. We are persecuted, but God does not leave us. We are hurt sometimes, but we are not destroyed…So we do not give up. Our physical body is becoming older and weaker, but our spirit inside us is made  new every day. We have small troubles for a while now, but they are helping us fain an eternal glory that is much greater than the troubles. We set our eyes not on what we see but on what we cannot see..” 1 Corinthians 4:8-9, 16-18

“Then suddenly there appeared with the angel an army of the troops of heaven (a heavenly knighthood), praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest [heaven], and on earth peace among men with whom He is well pleased [men of goodwill, of His favor]. Luke 2:13-14 AMP

We would like to leave you with this last Christmas Story from Max Lucado’s book Grace For the Moment. “In Bethlehem, the human being who best understood who God was and what he was doing, was a teenage girl in a smelly stable. As Mary looked into the face of the baby, she saw her son, her Lord, His majesty.  She couldn’t take her eyes off him!  Somehow Mary knew she was holding God.  So this is he, she thought. She remembered the words of the angel. “His kingdom will never end!”

He looks like anything but a king. His cry, though strong and healthy, was still the helpless and piercing cry of a baby. Majesty in the midst of mundane. Holiness in the filth of sheep manure and sweat. Divinity entering the world on the floor of a stable, through the womb of a teenager and in the presence of a carpenter. God came near! And Luke 1:33 says, “His kingdom will never end!”

Merry Christmas and God’s blessings be upon you.
