This message came to me as I was reading a devotional on Christmas. I really want to share it. This world needs Jesus! NOW more than ever! Jesus is at the right hand of The Father. WE(His Body) are here in this world. His Presence is in us! We are to be Jesus to this world. I'd like to challenge and encourage each of us to realize that the world is watching. We should be different, we should be consistent, and we should walk in the light as He is in the light!
Meditate on this....The world will only experience the joy of His birth to the extent that I exhibit joy. The world will only taste the peace of His coming to the extent that I reveal His peace. The world will only know the hope of Christmas when I respond to pain and disappointment as a hopeful believer. The world will see the Light of the world when I allow my life to become a shining beacon to humanity...
Joy! To Your World! Jesus has been born in you. God is looking for believers who will be bold enough and joyful enough to embrace the miracle of Christmas, not just one day a year, but every day of every season! Hallelujah!
Christmas was not all about Mary ... or Joseph ... or Elizabeth and Zacharias ... or shepherds and Magi. Christmas is all about you! It is about making yourself available at this time in history to reveal the presence and love of our Savior. You are the present that today God is choosing to give to your world. Your generation is desperate for the glory of a Savior. Without you, they may never know His name or the purpose of His coming.
Id like to send my heart-felt, warmest wishes for a Merry Christmas to you and your family! As we exchange gifts and celebrate, let us remember that The first Christmas gift EVER was Love...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. (John 3:16) RECEIVE that Love, be filled with that Love, tap into that Love and share that Love with each and every person you come in contact with! God wants us to do this not just today, but EVERY DAY of every season. AMEN! God Bless!
