2 Corinthians 9:15, Thanks be to God for His inexpressible gift!
As this verse says there just are no words to describe God’s amazing gift of His son to save us from our sins! This time of year should be a huge reminder of that! God loves you so much! There is no greater gift!
I love Christmas and the Joy that surrounds this season, but we can have that Joy all year around. We can celebrate Jesus and His birth all year round. My daughter Candace loves Christmas and that is how she celebrates her birthday by watching Christmas movies and her birthday is in July! There’s nothing wrong with celebrating His birth all year round! I don’t know why we have gotten into the mindset that you can only celebrate it in December? We should always be thankful for His birth and the Joy that brings the world. All of the presents in the world do not bring the joy that His birth brings. Celebrate Him this week but then take that with you into the New Year! Celebrate Easter with the same Joy that you do His birth. Don’t get so locked into a tradition that hasn’t been set by God that you miss out on Him the rest of the year.
Give yourself a gift this year and set your heart and mind to get to know Him better! Dig into His word and ask Him to give you a passion to know Him more! Join me after the first of the year for some online Bible studies via video. Pour yourself into growing in your love for Him and teaching your loved ones more about Him. Ask Him for a passion for the lost. We have the knowledge of the greatest gift ever given to mankind and there are people all around us, even here in America obviously, that do not know Him and they will die and spend eternity in Hell if we don’t let them know there are answers and there’s hope!
What a wonderful gift we have been given! He is the only giver of true Joy! His Joy and His Hope and His Love are exactly what the world needs today. They are crying out for it and they don’t even realize it! Be the light! You have His light within you and He wants to shine through you for all the world to see.
