Ready or Not…

Merry Christmas Friends!

I pray your week and weekend went well, and that you are able to enjoy this most precious day, as we celebrate the birth of our Saviour!

Were you ready for Christmas day? Did you enjoy the advent season in preparing yourself and your home for today? Well, whether you did or not, Christ has come!

 

 

 

 

Yes, CHRIST HAS COME! This is a most profound event for mankind, for you and for me. For it doesn’t matter whether you were ready or not, Christ has come. He has come into all of our unpreparedness, our messy relationships, our fighting, our grief, our pain, our emptiness. Don’t you see: it doesn’t matter if you are ready, or if everything in your life is perfect. He still has come to love you, to forgive you, to heal you, to help you, to guide you, and to be your Saviour! So, let go of all worry, grief, pain, and chaos, and rest in him. Confess to him your guilt and sins, worry and pain, and let his forgiveness and renewal, peace and love wash over you… whether you’re ready or not.

For to [insert name here] a child is born, to [me] a son is given, and [all my sins] will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (paraphrased from Isaiah 9:6) [He was born for me.] For, God so loves [insert your name here] that he gave his one and only Son, that [because I] believe in him, [I] shall not perish but have eternal life. (paraphrased from John 3:16) [Therefore I shall] come to [baby Jesus], weary and burdened, and [he] will give [me] rest. [I shall] take [his] yoke upon [me] and learn from [him], for [he is] gentle and humble in heart, and [I] will find rest for [my] soul. (paraphrased from Matthew: 11:28-29) Thank-you Lord Jesus!…AMEN!
