The whole world marks the birth of our dear Lord Jesus, the son of the living God. The celebration reaches the world because His birth brought change to humanity.
Then I heard a voice of the Lord saying. "Whom shall I send? Who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me?" Go and tell this people: "Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving." Isaiah 6: 8-9.
The Lord asked his servant, whom shall I send to the world to proclaim my gospel, Isaiah is the only man that said, "here am I, Lord, send me" Likewise, Jesus Christ was born with a mission, his birth was seen all over human race at the time; when a star shone all over the globe. When the wise men saw the star they knew something had happened somewhere so they traced the star to the manger where Jesus was born. They were overjoyed and to my surprise, they bowed down and worshipped Him. Then, they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts. Jesus was a gift to the world, without paving the way for us, the world with be a hopeless waste.
About 2000 years ago, many people donít understand the kind of person He was. A man of nature and like passion, a man of supernatural with oodles of authority. Peace flows wherever He goes. He was a man of distinction. Satan tricked him many times but he failed time and again. There shall be peace in the Christendom no matter what we go through. I mean peace on the inside. Where there is no peace, love and unity, we cannot be one Body. Hence we should try to be closer to God, The Father.
Saints of God, why do we offend ourselves? There should be peace among us so that we can enjoy everything we want on earth. He rose again for our justification. He left us with a divine peace that no man can give. Allow peace to reign among us and we all are looking up to enter one heaven.
