Good morning everyone,
Is your life back to more of the same mundane stuff that you had before or is your life different because of the birth of Jesus? See, Jesus is the reason that we should get excited about the season, but it shouldn't end there! His birth should be the springboard for us to have hope and to go out and encourage those that we encounter on a daily basis. Fears, struggles, failures, death and diseases are just to name a few of the conditions that we will encounter while we are on this earth. Without Jesus, you will never know the Prince of Peace! Without Jesus, all of the above conditions are a recipe for a miserable life with no destination! But with Jesus, He will show you how you can be an integral part of His ultimate plan. Think of each of us as being a pawn in a chess match! Even the lowliest pawn can be used to take down the king in disguise! I know many of you do not feel worthy of your importance but I would like you to consider that Jesus Christ wants everyone to come to know Him and it just might be you that He chooses to use to accomplish that! Pray that you allow Jesus to move you (a lowly pawn) wherever He wants to in order to accomplish 'mighty works!' John 3:16-17 tells us, 'For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.'
Your brother in Christ,
