“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”

John 3:16-17

Christmas is incredibly special.
It celebrates the most important event of all time…
the one event that gives our lives greater meaning,
purpose, hope, and significance.

 

Because Christ came, we have available to us this amazing promise – the gift of eternal life.

 

And it’s not a gift that we can earn; it’s one that
we need only accept by believing.

 

God’s promises are powerful because God keeps his promises.

Christ is the fulfillment of the promise of everlasting life.

 

 

Jesus is the ONLY reason for the season.
Gifts are nice.
Great food is good.
Adorned trees are lovely.
And mistletoe is indeed joyful!
However, before the stores commercialized it and Santa
(not the Grinch) stole it, Christmas was and still is a
HOLY season and occasion.
Christmas is sacred.

Celebrating the birth of Christ is ultimately about
remembering how much God loves us…how much God loves YOU.
Today should be a season of renewed purpose, focus
and commitment to share the message of Christ as the ultimate manifestation of God’s love.
We have much work to do.
We have an entire generation that is becoming
obsessed with attainment instead of alignment.

We aren’t here to gain the world while the world (not Heaven)
keeps gaining souls.
I challenge you on this Christmas to advance the Kingdom of
Heaven, not the Kingdom of self.
It’s not just generally the job of Believers to share the Word of God…
it’s your job. It’s my job.  It our job. It’s personal. It was pretty darn personal
for God to send His son for my life and yours…so, yes, it’s personal.
Make the love of Christ more personal than ever in your life.

Make known, like never before, the message of joy and your personal taste of God’s goodness.
If you truly Believe, stop sitting on the sidelines.
Let your life – every single area – make manifest the Glory of God.
Let your life and your light show that you are not ashamed of
the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Christ descended so that you could ascend.
Christ sacrificed so that you would not have to.
Christ left the throne so that you could freely access it.
And Christ wrestled then so that you could live in victory now.
Christmas is to be catalyst for next-level, God-centered living and witnessing.
When I say Merry Christmas to you, I am saying…
….May your BELIEF in Christ be renewed and remain strong.
….May you remember that Jesus is the ONLY reason for the season.
….May you SHOWCASE the love of Christ and remember that you, too, were built to work miracles.
AND
….May God the father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ bless you, strengthen you, multiply and advance his good purpose in you.
With all my heart, I wish you a Merry Christmas, dear friend.
Know that I believe in you.

I believe that God has chosen you and
that the
best is still within you…and ahead of you. 

I pray peace, focus and GODFDIENCE over you.

Christ is with you.

The Holy Spirit, even now, guides you.
God will never forsake you.
Keep believing and advancing the master commission,
and God will fulfill his promise to perfect that which concerns
you.

Merry Christmas!
