“For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from the [latter] time forth, even forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” Isaiah 9:6,7
Merry Christmas Everyone! I hope you are somewhere celebrating Christ with the ones you love! I won’t keep you long today. I just wanted to remind us all that while Christmas Day is a wonderful time to reflect on what God gave us through the birth of His Son Jesus, let us remember to not just celebrate Him on today but we must celebrate, honor and appreciate Him all year long. His love and peace should be evident in our lives every day.
Today, as we give and open gifts, as we eat lots of good food and hopefully surround ourselves with loved ones, let us be conscious to spread the Good News of Christ! Let us remember that He is the gift that remains with us the whole year through. He is the gift that keeps right on giving. He is a gift that we can offer to others every single day of our lives. Unlike gift cards, He never expires. Unlike toys, He never gets old, boring or runs out of batteries. Share the Gift. Share a testimony of His love with your family, friends or even with a stranger! Share Him with someone today. Share Him with someone tomorrow. Re-gift Him and offer Him to someone else all year round!
Until next time,
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
