Thank God for Jesus!

Good morning and a Merry Christmas Eve to you and yours!

This is your sis-in-Christ Shairon extending my holiday greetings to the Blog Fam before I head out to rehearsal at church!  Before I leave, let me share this quick, yet powerful Word of encouragement and love:

In the midst of the holiday rush, buying gifts for loved ones near & far, let us remember the best Gift given to all mankind-JESUS!

God gave us Jesus because He loved us so very much (John 3:16).  We were/are in desperate need of a Saviour, and Jesus was the only One qualified, without spot/blemish, to be that ultimate sacrificial Lamb for the world (Romans 8:3; 1 Peter 1:19).

Some of us enjoy the holiday decorations, gift-giving/receiving :) and holiday feast; BUT, let us not forget the TRUE MEANING OF THE SEASON-that little babe born in a manger all of those years ago, to grow up, minister and perform miracles, then be betrayed, whipped mercilessly, led to the Cross, bled and died for us.... 

BUT! 

BUT!  He is not dead...HE GOT UP, WITH ALL POWER IN HIS HANDS!!!!!!!!! (Matthew 28:18)
He is alive and well, and will be returning soon!  Let us be ready for the coming of the King of Kings!

Merry CHRISTmas, and praise God in advance for a prosperous, healthy & blessed new year 2012!
