Christmas Day!!!

At the end of your Christmas day will you be able to say:

And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. — Luke 1:47

The real reason for our celebration.

Mary Christmas

Hope you have a Mary Christmas — no that is not a typo. It is easy to see how you can have a Merry Christmas with all the joyous music and holiday parties. But even with all that so many find this time to be a downer.  Why? Because they are not having a Mary Christmas.

In Luke 10:38 – 42 Mary sat at the feet of Jesus focusing on Him (the reason for the season) while Martha was hustling and bustling about. So my hope is that you will have a Mary Christmas which will bring to you peace for the season.

Now as they were traveling along, He entered a village; and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home. She had a sister called Mary, who was seated at the Lord’s feet, listening to His word. But Martha was distracted with all her preparations; and she came up to Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone? Then tell her to help me.” But the Lord answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.” — Luke 10:38-42

Holiday Attitudes

A wonderful reminder, especially at Christmas time, when that attitude is highly tested. Working retail, in the midst of increased traffic and the corner store you frequent all year is now wall to wall people rushing, I needed a reminder, really an attitude adjustment, to be Christ-like. Especially in forgiveness. Merry Christmas and may your attitude be that of CHRISTmas.

 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

Colossians 3:12-14

It’s only a few days until Christmas now and the Christmas spirit is abroad in the land…

When I was 10 years old, I knew what that was, but as I get older and older, I’m not so sure.  I used to think it was a kind of joy, mixed with anticipation and general excitement, but as an adult all of that faded.  Oh, I look forward to the day simply because it involves being with loved ones and having a “fancy” meal, not because it was Christmas.  If anything, for my adult self…

Tell, Praise, Worship

Tell everyone of every nation,

“Praise the glorious power
    of the Lord.
He is wonderful! Praise him
and bring an offering
    into his temple.
Worship the Lord,
    majestic and holy.
1 Chronicles 16:28-29

Go tell it on the mountain, Jesus Christ is born. Come let us adore Him. Worthy of worship. Worthy of praise. Wonderful Counselor. Mighty God. Majesty, worship His majesty.

Hope your Christmas is filled with Jesus. May His name be spoken in your homes. May He be proclaimed in your neighborhood, church and workplace. May your one small voice make a difference to a dying world this Christmas. Christmas is Jesus, the Christ (Messiah) who came to save. Celebrate His marvelous gift!

Scriptures. Daily?

Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so. Therefore many of them believed, along with a number of prominent Greek women and men. — Acts 17:11-12

The power of the Word of God. Want to see God more clearly, love Him more dearly? Receive the Word eagerly and study it DAILY to see that God is true.

Do you desire for others to believe in God? Give the Word of God. Read the Word of God to others — especially your children, grandchildren, etc. God’s Word is powerful enough to span multiple generations, multiple ethnic groups, multiple social classes and multiple whatever. God’s Word is powerful and stands on its own. We are privileged to be a part of God’s plan to share His Word. To God be the glory!!!

I hope the Word of God is part of your Christmas and a very important part of your daily life.

God bless your day.

Jesus Is Coming

Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent, because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead.” — Acts 17:30-31

Are you ready to receive the King of kings? He came once to bring salvation and redemption. The time is now to repent. When Jesus returns it will be for judgment. Do you know Jesus? He is the righteousness by which you will judged. Know Him and be saved from eternal condemnation.

Christians can truly rejoice at Christmas time knowing Jesus is the Christ. Christians can continue to rejoice because of the righteousness poured out on them by the blood of Jesus. Christians rejoice knowing that Jesus is coming again. O glorious day!

Are you ready?

Continually seeking Him,
