Luke 2:15-16 "And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, 'let us now go even unto Bethlehem and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.' And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe (was) lying in a manger." (KJV)
Ring the bells! We have a New Year presented to us by Almighty God and through this gift, let us submit to Him and allow Him to create within us a new spirit. May You renew our hearts and minds, O heavenly Father, that we might see more clearly the things that are from You and give You thanks. Amen!
As the shepherds sought out the Christ-child with haste, let us do likewise.
God has made Himself known to us;
The Holy Spirit dwells within us.
We have opened the door to our hearts and Christ has come.
Throughout this New Year let us get reacquainted with this Christ, our Savior, this Person Who lives within our hearts.
Yes, we are all getting older; some of us are older, older! Yet we can still let Jesus walk with us and talk with us. He reminds us of His peace, joy, and love. Whether we lie on beds of painful affliction or can no longer hear well enough to listen to a sermon, Christ is still there. If we would only drop the worn and tattered garment of SELF, we would see more clearly the blessings all around us that He has provided.
He is in the family member who comes to cheer you, the caring friend who greets you with a big smile, the letter or card from someone who has thought of you. The good hot meals you eat every day, the sunrise each morning, the air you breathe, the song of the bird outside your window... in everything that ministers to you each and every day, He is there!
"In everything...give thanks."
