Merry Christmas everyone! May our hearts be blessed and filled with joy as we celebrate our Savior this Christmas day! Jesus is worthy to be praised! Let us adore Him!
We had a great time of worship at the Christmas Eve service at our new church yesterday. It was the first time we were able to visit and it was a beautiful time of fellowship singing songs like “Oh Holy Night.” The pastor shared the Gospel using Isaiah 9 and he gave people a chance to accept Jesus by faith, which was awesome. The Holy Spirit was definitely poured out among us and Jesus was glorified!
It has been a very joyful Christmas and it was fun watching the kids open their presents this morning. We have been listening to carols and praise songs all day and I praise God for the joy of the Holy Spirit as we celebrate Jesus! This is one of my favorite songs from the new Reach Records Christmas album called “The Gift.” It is a very encouraging and upbeat hip-hop version of a classic praise song and it had me dancing with my hands up today! I pray it is a blessing to you all as well!
Jesus loves you! Let that truth sink deep into your heart today! Jesus was born because God is love, and God has poured out His love on us all by offering us eternal life through faith in Jesus! If you have never accepted that most precious gift, I pray with all my heart that you come to know your Savior who loves you and you receive the salvation of your soul this very day! No matter where you are in the world, God is offering you this gift! It is up to you to receive it by faith.
“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Jesus speaking in John 3:16
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.”
That is the glory of Christmas! Jesus will forgive your sins and give you eternal life! What a mighty gift of God’s amazing grace! Hallelujah!
“For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will
be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Prince of Peace.”
Grace and peace to you all! Have a beautiful and blessed Christmas!
