Good day friends! I pray your week and weekend went well!
A blessed Christmas to you and yours!
Let’s top up our coffees and rejoice in the best gift ever….
Readings for Dec. 25: Christmas Day: The Nativity of Our Lord
Isaiah 52:7–10; Psalm 2; Hebrews 1:1–6 (7–12); John 1:1–14 (15-18)
The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:9, 4-5
Glory to God in the highest, and peace to his people on earth! Our Saviour is coming! The light of the world is coming to shine on our lives! This week is Christmas. Let us rejoice and be glad. Our Saviour comes and he reigns. “Burst into songs of joy together. . . . All the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God” (Isaiah 52:9a…10b)
No matter where you are at or what you are enduring, no matter the struggles or the burdens of your life, Christ is coming. He is coming for you. He is coming to bring light to your life and disperse the darkness. He is coming to redeem your life now and for eternity. So let him. Let him fill you. Lay your burdens, your guilt, your worries on him and he will wash over you with his forgiveness and peace. He will cleanse you from the inside out. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. (Isaiah 1:18b) In the light of Christ you will be radiant. In Christ, you are radiant; you are beautiful; you are loved.
So, celebrate the best gift ever. Celebrate the coming of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus the baby! Hear our Heavenly Father whisper in your ear, “Come, my child. I have a gift for you because I love you! Take him and don’t ever let him go.”
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank-you for sending your son as my Saviour; to walk the path that I cannot. He is the best gift ever! Help me to cherish him always and to rejoice in your grace and love and salvation through Jesus, my Lord. Thank-you! In Jesus’ name I pray. AMEN!
