“For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Prince of Peace.”
~ Isaiah 9:6
Just wanted to pop in real quick to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
What makes a Merry Christmas? What are the prime ingredients?
Is it the presents wrapped with beautiful paper and tied with elegant bows? Is it found in owning the latest in technology? Or can it be found under the Christmas tree at all?
I have received my Christmas gift already but it wasn’t wrapped or nestled under the glowing lights.
The greatest gift of all is found in knowing the love that God so extravagantly displayed in sending His one and only Son into this depraved world so that He would grow into a man, who would take our sins away and put us in right relationship with the Father.
That is the message of the Gospel.
It isn’t complicated. It is simple. God loved. God gave.
It is up to us whether or not to receive such a priceless gift, the gift of spending eternity with God.
It’s just that simple.
Man tends to complicate matters, but the message of the Bible remains unchanged, unaltered throughout the ages. It’s the message that you are a valuable soul and God loves you too much to spend eternity apart!
Won’t you accept Him today?
If you already have, then you have all that is necessary to have the Merriest of Christmases! Jesus, the perfect Gift!
To top it off, on a personal note…
Our family has sold our house and recently moved 1,000 miles to be near our grown son. We could not be happier to be spending our first Christmas together in the same area. (More on our big move to come…)
To all my WP friends, new or old, here’s wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year in 2015!
“And, now my brothers, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers.” ~ III John 2
