A Christmas Message

As Christmas approaches I am reminded of the commercial about the two M&M boys when they meet Santa Claus for the first time. I often think that nonbelievers in Jesus Christ as their Savior will act the same way when they meet Jesus on that last day. They will say, “He does exist!”

Philippians 2:10-11 reads,”that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Attitude and choices have everything to do with the way our once great nation and the world around us is today.

What if our attitude and choices in the last fifty years were against the forces of evil, instead of against the powers of God? God’s words have been taken out of our courts and our schools. Some would like God’s words taken out of our way of life.

I believe that God being a Holy God will not go where he is not wanted.  I believe He is in deep sorrow over the violence and destruction that has been running rampant over this land of the so called free, and around the world. He is waiting patiently for us to invite Him back.

The main thing about Christianity is not only the work we do, but the relationship we have with one another and the surrounding influence that is produced by that relationship. This is all God asks of us, and this is the very thing that is continually being attacked by Christians and Non-Christians alike.

Many of us do not go on spiritually because we prefer to choose what we consider is right instead of relying on God to choose for us. If we allow God to choose for us than we can truly say, “In Him we truly live and have our being.”

1 John 1:7 reads, ““But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son, purifies us from all sin.”

As we enter into a new year, let us think more on God’s only Son and invite Him back into our lives, and see how much more enjoyable our family, town, state, nation, and the world, will be in 2017.

Until next time. Praise God!
