I would first like to take this moment to thank Jesus,who left the comforts and glory of Heaven to become a modest man. So that God could dwell among men,having face to face communion with man kind. To teach mankind about the mind of God,to teach how man should conduct him self toward God and his neighbor,to teach about the heavenly kingdom and what is required become a citizen on that kingdom. Most of all to pay the tole that is owed for mankind to cross the bridge takes mankind from the shore of separation and judgement,to the shore or being reunited to fellowship and complete forgiveness of the transgression of sin.I what to share with you, that the last three Christmases past as well as this year ,have been full of personal trials. three years ago I was forced out of work due to a abdominal hernia for two month without pay. Two year I has transmission problem with my truck which at the time only had 50,000 miles on it. A year ago I was spend spend my money on doctor visits , and found out I have heart problems. This year my truck needed new rotors and breaks, plus I have a problem that might destroy my life for ever. So the last three Christmases have not be very merry. But because what Jesus has done for man kind,and because my faith is in Him,and not in my circumstance. I can celebrate His birth day.I know that their are many people who are facing difficult time right now, but remember God became a man to bring us good news,and to express God’s love,grace,mercy toward us.So no matter how dark your world is getting,God is a faith full friend who will never leave you or forsake you,so help is always there for you, just have to invite Him into you life.
Remember Christmas is not a celebration of ourselves, but the celebration of The Savior OF The World.
