God's Christmas Wish

Hi friend, nice to see you. Come on in and make yourself at home.

God and I are about to have a chat, please join us…

Well for starters, I've been wondering Lord, what do you desire for Christmas?

Glad you asked. I desire all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2:3-4)

That makes perfect sense. Kind of like the way I desire to have a close relationship with my children.

I understand your desire Lord, but what can I do, how can I help?

It seems crazy now that I think of it but I’ve always asked others what they want for Christmas and never you. It’s not their birthday, it’s not my birthday. I’m sorry Lord, I’ve neglected to ask you.

So, with that being said and since Christmas is really a celebration of the birth of Christ it only seems natural to ask; Lord and King what can I do for you?

‘I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’

‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’

‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ (Matthew 25:31-46)

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

I pray you have a wonderful Christmas. Remember, the most valuable gifts are free. Appreciate others presence more than presents.

And although it's great to give, it's vital to receive THE GIFT, Jesus Christ.

Merry Christmas and God bless us everyone.
