It is Christmas day! I hope everyone is having a fantastic day. I have been pondering on some things today, things I would like to share with you!
The birth of Jesus gives us hope and I would like you show you how.
Jesus could have chosen any family to live with but He chose Joseph and Mary! They were simple people. He could of chosen to be born into a rich family, one with influence and power but He didn’t, why?
He could of chosen to be born in a palace, a place of prominence but instead He was born in a manger!
He could of chosen to reveal Himself to men of power, and men of prominence solely but His glory was revealed to shepherds as well.
Jesus settled down in Nazareth but this is what Nathanael had to say about Nazareth:
Nathanael answered him, [Nazareth!] Can anything good come out of Nazareth? Philip replied, Come and see! John 1:46
The question I ask myself is, why???
And even through out His life we see this same pattern, Jesus using seemingly useless things to spread the good news!
On Christmas day today I would like you to see your importance. You may look at your life and think, “How can God use me, I have nothing, I AM nothing”
Consider this, He has a plan for you!
You may look at the coming year and think, “it’s not going to work out, it’s going to be a bad year”
Consider this, He will turn things around for your good. You will have a great year!
Christmas is evidence that Jesus has given us a glorious second chance at life.
It is evidence that things WILL turn around in your life.
It is evidence that winter’s do come to an end!
It is evidence we serve a God who really loves us.
It is evidence God has an amazing plan for our lives!
It is evidence the enemy will not and cannot have the last say in our lives! He is defeated!
Merry Christmas. Honor Him by remembering all He has done for you! He is so good….!!!! Amen! 🙂
