May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace. I Cor 1: 3
Word: Gen 1: 27 says “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”
Thought: What is God’s purpose on Earth?
We are God’s image bearers. We are the aroma of Christ Jesus wherever he leads us. When we hold God’s hand we might leave it, but if He holds our hand He will not leave. This is the success history of our forefathers those who walked humbly with Him on this Earth.
May God bless you and keep you in His presence and His peace during this Christmas season and years to come.
But you, Bethlehem Ephrata, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from ancient times. Micah: 5:2
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
In order to magnify the glory of his own mercy God has chosen the little town of Bethlehem, Joseph, Mary, Shepherds and Wiseman to be part of His sovereign plan.
