3 Days of Christmas

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world,
but that the world might be saved through Him.
~ John 3:16-17 ~

Little Jesus babe
May all the world fully know
Endless life in You

Jesus is the Reason!

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
~ Isaiah 9:6

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold,
I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people;
for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
~ Luke 2:11

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.
~ John 3:16

Jesus is the Reason

Christmas day is here at last

With presents and decorations galore

The tree stands aglow

Twinkling like the stars in the night sky

A reminder of the that one blessed eve

Over 2,000 years ago

The angels appeared to the shepherds below

Telling the birth of Immanuel

He is the ultimate gift and Savior to the lost world

Born in Bethlehem, a lowly babe

Sent from Heaven above

God gave us His only Son to live and die

A sacrifice for all mankind

Though presents are lovely

And stockings filled with goodies bring a smile

Remember that fateful night long ago

He is the reason we celebrate

The magi came from afar to worship and adore

They brought Him gifts of frankincense, gold and myrrh

The gifts we give to one another are thoughtful indeed

But the best gift we can give

Is the message of eternal life and love

Give the true gift of Christmas this year

Give the message of God’s mercy and grace

The promise of forgiveness of sins

A hope for an eternal life spent with Him

*****************************************************************************

 God bless and keep you and your family always, and may you have the courage to share the love and sacrifice of Christ on this blessed Christmas day!

For God so loved the world that he gave his only son,
That whosoever believes in him shall not perish
But have everlasting life.
For God did not send his Son into the world
To condemn the world
But to save the world through him.
~ John 3:16-17 ~

Come to earth as man
Sent to bring life to us all
Praise be to our God

I am always so energized by the coming of a New Year!!  It has always given me hope that there is chance for renewal and rebirth, much like spring.   Christmas reminds me of the importance of Jesus Christ and his sacrifice for me, bringing me into a living relationship with God himself, and then comes the New Year, which enables me the chance to renew and rededicate my heart, mind, and soul to God.

There was once a time when I looked at God as being “up there”, so “far away”, and so “omnipotent” that I could not ever be in a relationship with him.  Having walked through the valley of abuse, spent time in the throes of divorce, and experienced such sinful and impure thoughts, I thought I could never communicate with God, never be “good” enough, never be clean enough to approach him or to connect with him.

However, much to my surprise and delight, I have learned that no one is perfect, no one is ever “good enough”, and no one is ever pure enough to connect with God.  God is perfect, sinless, righteous, and well, God!  As I mentioned in my Choose! post, scripture states that we have all fallen short of the glory of God, that we have all sinned, and that we are all evil and sinful creatures of the flesh.  Depressing, yes!  But scripture does not stop there!!  There is hope!  In John 3:16-17, God sent His one and only Son, to be a sacrificial lamb for all mankind, so that we could be washed in the cleansing blood of Christ, and have everlasting life, if we so choose to accept the perfect Lamb of God, Jesus Christ.

With the choice of everlasting life, the choice of believing in Christ, his life, his crucifixion, and his resurrection, comes a set of beliefs established in faith and love.  These are indeed the fundamentals of Christian living.  God wants nothing but the best for His children (Jeremiah 29:11), but we must accept him and live in obedience and grace.

The Newsboys put out a wonderful song based on these fundamental beliefs.  I hope that you listen and take the opportunity to accept Christ into your life, thus finding hope for a future, and joy in the promise of eternal salvation.  May you walk with the living God, enjoying his peace, comfort, strength, endurance, wisdom, discernment, and never-ending love!!!  All my love for a promising New Year with God in the driver’s seat! ❤

All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching,
for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;
so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work. ~ 2 Timothy 3:16-17
