THIS CHRISTMAS – 2016
When considering what to post as my Christmas message this year, I decided to re-post what I said in 2013 because my sentiments are truly the same, and even more-so considering the enemy’s increased warfare against Christ during this season.
Be inspired, be encouraged, be determined, and be blessed!
each time you see a light, remember that Jesus is the light of the world.
each time you see a gift, remember that God gave the greatest gift in sending His only begotten Son to earth so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
each time you see a Christmas tree, remember the price Jesus paid for your salvation by suffering and dying on the cross.
each time you see preparations made in commemoration and celebration of the first arrival of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, remember the importance of preparing yourself for His next arrival because He is coming again, not as a baby in a manger, but as a mighty, conquering King.
may you and your loved ones have a blessed, peaceful, safe, and Christ-filled, holiday.
“For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”
(Isaiah 9:6-7 – NKJV)
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”
(John 3:16, 17 – NKJV)
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
(John 10:10 – NKJV)
