What Is Christmas All About?

What Is Christmas All About?
 
 
What is Christmas all about? Initially, its purpose was certainly not about the commercialized aspects of spending or beautiful light displays. Unless of course you consider that one brilliant star that the Wise Men followed on the night that Jesus the Christ was born.
 
For many, Christmas is peace, love, contentment, joy - all the emotions that encompass that indescribable euphoric feeling found in a major portion of the world that spark elements of gifting. During this season of gifting, as God has instructed, there is a mad dash to feed the hungry, clothe the naked and provide warmth for those who are helpless, homeless and without a means of support. Sadly, for many, these euphoric emotions only last but a season and quickly fade away as the next day of celebration designated on the calendar approaches. But what is Christmas all about? Is it merely intended for three weeks of gifting? What was God's intention when He gave His only Son?
 
Scripture tells us that God relinquished His Son because of His love for us. It tells us that in order for us to live and to enjoy an eternal life with Him in Heaven that we only need to believe in His Son, Jesus.
 
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 KJV
 
My dear brothers and sisters, God's Word is plainly stated. The major element of Christmas is Jesus. Christmas is all about our salvation - - that was God's intention - - to provide a means for us to join Him in the Kingdom of Heaven. His invitation (John 3:16) continues to stand and this Christmas season is a marvelous time to accept the opportunity of life everlasting. However, if you have already accepted God's invitation - I challenge you to go into the vineyards and share with others His exceptional offer of life everlasting. Selah.
 
 
May the love of Jesus the Christ remain in your heart and mind.
And may the blessings of this Christmas season bring
peace, joy and success into your life.
 
 
 
My Prayer
 
Thank you Lord for your Son, love and guidance. Father, I pray that seeds of salvation are sown in every corner of the world. I pray that those who are far and near are able to understand and will seek You to accept your perfect gift of salvation and life everlasting. I pray that the birth of Jesus the Christ remains in the hearts of my brothers and sisters and that the true purpose of Christmas is remembered and shared as they go about their daily travel. I also pray a special blessing for my dear friend, Bishop Evans and his loved ones, as he continues to share the gospel of salvation in Rio de Janeiro. In the precious name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.

"Jesus Came"

Oh what a blessed morning this is - Glory to His name!
 
I can only imagine the joy that the Wise men encountered as they looked upon the sweet face of Jesus. Personally, I know that when I see a baby - I experience a feeling of joy from within my soul. I can only imagine how they felt as they gazed upon His face. To be chosen to have a part in God's plan is truly an honor, whatever the plan may be. To have a part in the very beginning of His plan for salvation for all human-kind is awesome!
 
This tiny baby boy was God's true gift to us. His birth brought about redemption, salvation and eternal life - all promised by God.
 
Jesus: the Son of our living God; the Prince of Peace; our personal invitation to enter into the kingdom of God.
 
Jesus: born of the virgin Mary; protected by Joseph, His earthly father.
 
Jesus: grew to be the master teacher, with the wisdom and knowledge of God to lead us to salvation.
 
Jesus: conquered all on the third day after death.
 
Jesus saves. Jesus lives. Jesus is! Glory to His name. Selah!
