Greeting to all in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
When we think about December, immediately Christmas will come in to our mind. All over, Christmas has become a great celebration. In Fact it has become more of a commercial purpose of sale. In our Christmas celebration we must realize the purpose of Christmas and God’s work in history. The birth of Jesus is a mystery to be adored and not a puzzle to be pride in to. The shepherds and the Maggie who wanted to adore Christ found Him in the manger. The baby you see in the manger is not an ordinary child, but the divine who took human flesh.
The word that became flesh is the same word that in the beginning was with God and was God. It is through Him all things were made. The word had been before the world had a beginning. He was the same God whom Abraham adored.
Jesus in the manger is the spectacle of God’s love towards human beings. He emptied Himself because He loves us and He wanted to one with us in all things except sin. When we look at Jesus in the manger, we must discern His love for us. He spared Himself proving His love for us. The great God of heaven and earth is our God and He loves us as a loving father and that we are to love each other as brothers and sisters. The challenge of Christmas summarized in a poem by an unknown poet is as follows:
“When the song of the angel is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the Kings and princess are home,
When the Shepherds are back with the flocks,
The work of Christmas begins;
To find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among brothers,
To make music with the heart “.
Let us respond to this challenge positively and welcome the new year. Let us also experience the Love of God and walk with Jesus in all the days throughout the year.
Wish you a Merry Christmas and A prosperous new year.
May God bless us all, Yours in Christ service
