Today I am inviting my friend Bincy Cherian to the Blog. She is sharing her insights on Christmas with us. I am sure, her words will bless you as you celebrate the birth of our Saviour.
The coming of our little baby girl seven years after our marriage brought hope and light, joy and warmth into our family. Cheerful and delightful, she won our hearts.
The birth of a baby boy two thousand years ago in a manger in Bethlehem brought with Him the special message of love, joy and peace from heaven.
CHRISTMAS TO ME MEANS:
1.GOD IS WITH ME: This special baby, Jesus ,brought the message from heaven that “God is with us”. He was called Immanuel, which means” God with us”. For me this means God came down to be with me in all my situations. He came to help me overcome and rise up above those difficult situations. The assurance of His promise “In this world you will have trouble, but I am with you always” keeps me going.
- GOD IS AT PEACE WITH ME: This means He is not angry with me. At his birth the angels sang “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to men on whom His favour rests.” Jesus came to be my friend and connect me back to Father God although I strayed and went far away from Him .I don’t have to fear that God is angry with me anymore. I can boldly go to Him anytime and anywhere.
- GOD’S FAVOR IS THERE FOR ME: As the angel sang, I believe I have the favour of God in my life. Although there are setbacks and failures God has good plans for me and for all who believe in Him—plans to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us a future and a hope.
4.GOD’S UNCONDITIONAL LOVE IS THERE FOR ME:
I enjoy God’s peace, favour and joy in my life, not because I am good.A wretched sinner I am, I stand today only because of His Unconditional Love .
For the Word of God says, all have sinned and deserve punishment—“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is Eternal Life in Jesus Christ Our Lord “.(Romans 6:23)
Truly Love came down at Christmas. God’s love touched me. He took the punishment I deserve for my sins on the cross and saved me. Jesus is the best gift I have today.
AND HE IS THE BEST GIFT TO THE WORLD
