Christ Has Come!

Posted on December 25, 2015 at 6:15 AM


Such a special week! We celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. We lift Him up and honor Him. Angels sang at His birth and a great star shone upon Him drawing wise men from the east, who could read signs in the heavens and knew an amazing event had occurred. Two thousand years later we still honor His birth, because of Who He is and what He did.

Jesus, the Son of God, second person of the Trinity, God, yes, Jesus Himself left His place in heaven to come to earth as one of us. Why? Because God loves us so much and He desires all of us to live for eternity in heaven with Him. We are all sinners; none is perfect. God is perfect holiness, goodness, justice, and love, and it is as impossible for sin to be near Him as it would be for paper to be next to flames of fire; paper would burn up quickly as would a sinner near Perfect Holiness


So Jesus came to be one of us, to teach us and to redeem us. He taught us about His Father, His character, His love for us. Then Jesus did the unthinkable~ sacrificed Himself for us taking on the sins of the world and the punishment due to each of us, paying our debt for us by His own shed blood. He suffered incredible pain of every kind in order to wash us clean of sin’s stains. All that is left to do is for us to admit we are sinners, repent for our sin, accept Jesus gift to us, and ask Him to come live in us and be Lord of our lives.


My own experience was like being reborn; felt like I’d gone through a paradigm shift where everything was seen in a new light of understanding. I hungered to know more and began consuming the Word of God, absorbing pastor’s illuminating messages, meeting with my Lord each and every morning to learn and be taught by Him. I came to know Him on a deep personal level, and today I glory in His wonder and question why this mighty magnificent God would choose to reveal Himself to me, to live within me as my Teacher, Comforter, my Guide through life. How can He love me so well? I am only a poor scribe, but I believe the secret is I do live in obedience to Him. And that is the key.


My friends, this Christmas, invite Jesus to come be Lord of your life! It creates exuberance, purpose and joy here and guarantees an eternity beyond your greatest dreams!


MerryChristmas!!

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
