God’s Great Love
The Prophet Isaiah said in Isaiah 9:6-7,
6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the greatness of His government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over His kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.
God’s grace in the flesh. As we pondered at the Christmas Eve Service, out of His deep love for you and me, Jesus was willing to leave His majestic realms of glory to enter the realm of humanity. Shedding all His visible attributes that were too much for man's flesh to endure, He dressed Himself in the clothing of a human being and was manifested in the flesh. That little baby in Bethlehem was the eternal, ever-existent God Almighty, who dressed Himself in human flesh so that He could dwell among men and purchase our salvation. Christ did all of this conquer the darkness. He is the Light of life. What a Savior!
As we come to the final days of 2013, I think of the many new faces that have come to be a part of our church. We are so blessed to be having so many new babies added to our families. We are so blessed to see new members come into the church. I also think of the ones who have gone home to be with the Lord and the ones who have been diagnosed with cancer. The enemy will not discourage God’s anointed. We are overcomers! God has many good days in store for us.
Thank you for being an awesome church. My family and I are overwhelmed at the love of Jesus present in our fellowship.
May you be found seeking Him in the days ahead…
Joy in Jesus!
