Christmas Praise

Merry Christmas,

Today is a day that we celebrate the greatest announcement that ever has been made: The Savior – yes, the Messiah, the Lord – has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! Luke 2:11  Praise God that He has come to us so the we can do life together with Him…Jesus is Emmanuel, God with us.  We learn in John 1, that God became one of us so that we could become one of His.  As we believe in and receive him, he gives to us the power to become one of his children.  

As I have been thinking about Christmas,God has laid on my heart Ephesians 1  — Here we are given an explanation of the benefits of that great announcement from Luke 2.  I wanted to take a moment and share with you a verse that I am reflecting upon this morning…All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.  Ephesians 1:3  We are reminded here of the great gifts that God has given to us through Christ and given a focal point for our celebration – praise to Him.

I am praying for you and yours today as you share in the celebration of the Word becoming flesh, God came near and now is dwelling among us…we are accepted by him because of the great gift he has given us in our Savior Jesus.  So as we celebrate with one another today, let’s remember to lift our voices and hearts in praise to God.

May you all enjoy in God’s great blessings today…let’s take our lead from the shepherds and tell everyone we see the great things that God has done.  “After seeing him, the shepherds told everyone what had happened and what the angel had said to them about this child.”
