JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON! Beloved,
Although we know that following Jesus is the best decision
we could have ever made in our lives - giving us a joy we’ve never known before
- we also acknowledge that sometimes it doesn’t feel like it. Sometimes, in fact, it feels completely opposite;
and it is during those times we should draw closer to God. It is during those times we should remember
Jesus and why He came. As we go through this
advent season of celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior, the Gospels
are ever so present reminding us of why (John 3:16) and that He came to offer rest
to those who are weary and heavy-laden (Matthew 11:28).
Make up your mind today to not allow the devil to cause you
to be stressed about anything going on in your life. Make up your mind to receive life and life
more abundantly as promised by Jesus in John 10:10. Make up your mind to believe that God really does
care about you. “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy
laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28) “Therefore humble
yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He
cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:6-7). “The thief does not
come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have
life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)
a blessed and joyful Christmas remembering Jesus is the reason for the season! Yetta N.A.
Our commitment to God is
not always convenient, but it pleases our Father when we have a made up mind to be committed; doing it His way and not ours.
When we commit ourselves to doing it His way, it pleases Him because it
takes faith and a surrendered heart in order to do so. To say "no" to those things
that we know are not pleasing unto God nor glorify Him, and "yes" to the things that are and do, takes faith. If we remember Jesus and what He did for us on Calvary’s Cross, we can do it! We can be faithful.
It’s a MARVELOUS MONDAY today because
you are in it! The “JOY OF THE LORD”
is our strength and oftentimes the devil - who is the accuser of the brethren,
father of lies, and destroyer of them that love TRUTH - comes to steal, kill,
and destroy it. Don’t let him! As Believers we
have the power not to fall for Satan’s trickery and deceit. Hold on to your JOY, hold on to the TRUTH, and
hold on to our LORD and SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, who gives us life and life more abundantly! Because of Him, we have the victory! (Nehemiah 8:10, John 8:44,
Revelations 5:10, John 10:10, 1 Corinthians 15:57)
