‘Twas the Friday before Christmas and all through the house… so it’s technically the eve of Christmas Eve right? lol… is anybody else on a Christmas is coming high?!? (I know it aint just me ;-)) Well guess what girlfriends? It is coming in just 2 more days!! What a wonderful time to be alive and amongst the living to give honor to Jesus Christ! I just wanted to leave you with a few scriptures to remind us all of why we celebrate Christmas, better yet of why we celebrate Jesus – the reason for the season.
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Matthew 1:23
*Jesus was born so that God could be with you and me
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17
*Christmas lights should be a reminder that God is the Father of lights and that every good and perfect gift comes from Him
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: 1 Peter 3:15
*Not everyone we see knows the true reason for the season, a lot of people get caught up in the commercial driven hype of Christmas, but it is our responsibility to tell them about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
Well ladies that’s all I want to share with you and I pray that those 3 scriptures touched your hearts.
Let us pray… God I thank you for another opportunity to sow into the life of the person reading this, I pray that I may draw just one person closer to you. I pray that none of us will get caught up in the hype of Christmas and steer away from Jesus. That we would NOT fall victim of over spending to give gifts to our families and friends. I pray that none of us will experience grief, depression, anxiety, nor debt this season. And that we all will remember the precious gift of LOVE. It is in your precious son’s Jesus’ name I pray. AMEN.
God bless you all and have a very Merry CHRISTmas!
Joy for Your Day,
