The perfect gift is Jesus !!!!!
Jesus- Son of God and Son of Man (in the Gospel of John, the emphasis on Jesus is to show us that He is the Son of God and Son of man) was prophesied in the Old Testament, Jesus the fulfillment of that prophesy. Jesus the saviour, Jesus the redeemer, Jesus the Messiah. Prophesies from the Old Testament coming true in its fulfilment of the promise of a Saviour. God through the face of Jesus delivering on His promises. This is one way to give credence to the prophets of the OT.
Below is one of my favourite Christmas songs from biblical inspiration.
Jesus who gave up his crown to be with the lowest of the low. Jesus who came into this world with so little but gave so much. Jesus was to show us a new way to live, a new way that would lead us all to salvation.
You don’t have to earn Jesus’ love. He has loved you first.
So, for the price of Jesus coming and living among us, what do we need to do?
To make a friend in Jesus, to pray to Him, to ask Him, to worship Him, make Jesus your best friend., that’s all. Why? Because He is our hope in this dark world.
You might think this is cheesy but that’s half the problem today with society, the minute you speak on spiritual matters you are regarded as old fashioned or out of touch. If you can’t prove it, it doesn’t exist. They couldn’t be more wrong.
I speak with truth and conviction. In my darkest times when I prayed, Jesus has always come through, Jesus made my burdens lighter and not to think of what He has removed from harm’s way. Jesus who is at work moment by moment aligning our paths with God’s will, if we let Him.
FAITH is the precursor, without it, you are blocking the power of Jesus Christ.
So on this Christmas 2017, I have spent it with my husband, beautiful daughters and family who love Christmas because it has been instilled in them since they were born.
On Christmas Eve, together we went to church, together we prayed and together we celebrated over two days joined by other family members. What could be better?
I’d like to wish you all what I have-LOVE, PEACE, and JOY in my heart. May the spirit of Christmas enfold you everyday and may Jesus come into your hearts to dispel all darkness and infill it with peace and joy.
