  It’s all about Jesus!

Isaiah 9:6-7(NLT)
For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity. The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen!

Jesus is the reason for this Christmas season! As we come to the month of December and approach Christmas, it is a good time for us to bring ourselves in remembrance of the goodness of God and His love for us.

More than 2000 years ago, Jesus, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the World was born of a virgin. Emmanuel, God with us, came to planet Earth with the purpose of giving Himself willingly as a sacrifice for the sin of mankind. No greater love has ever been shown than when Christ humbled and emptied Himself of all of His power and authority to take on humanity (Philippians 2:6-7). All for you and me!

Truly Christmas is all about giving! Take some time out to give thanks to God for his goodness and faithfulness in your life in 2010. Take some time to thank Jesus for loving us enough to give of Himself for us and taking on humanity so He could redeem mankind.

It is also a good time for us to search our hearts and evaluate our love for God and others. We are called to be an example and an extension of Christ’s love to others. This Christmas season, what gift can you give to someone outside of your own family in expression of Christ’s love to them? I challenge you to set aside some time from the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping and the yearend busyness to do something for someone outside of your own family.

I know God will be pleased and what a great way for us to express to our children and to others what Christmas is really all about?!

My prayer is that you will experience the true joy of Christmas! May the Lord richly bless you and your family with the joy of Christmas – Jesus Christ, the reason for this Christmas season!

With love,
