Matthew: Chapter 1 verse 21.
She will give birth to a Son
and you are to give him the name
because he will save his people
from their sins.
I am so glad that Mary was obedient, because if she had not given birth to Jesus where would you and I be today? It does not bear to think about it! Praise God today for the birth of Jesus who also was obedient to Our Heavenly Father to the extent of dying on The Cross for yours and my sins. I Praise you Heavenly Father that you allowed Your only Son Jesus to come to earth to save us from certain death. Thank You that we choose the 25th. December to celebrate the Birth of Jesus Christ our Lord being born on this earth. Amen.
Taken from the book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.
All of us as Christians know this story above. How would you feel if you had to give up your Son to save someone. We really could not do that could we? Or maybe it would be a Daughter that you could be asked to give up to save someone. Both Sons and Daughters are very precious to us. Just think how much we love them and then concider just how much God loves us that He gave His only Son to come to Earth for our sakes. That is incredible and our human brains cannot fathom out the great love that God has for us his people.
Jesus was obedient to His Father in Heaven and all Power on earth is given to Him.
So He can confidently say in the Bible John: Chapter 14 verse 6.
(No one comes to the Father except by me)
Now is the time if you have not done so already to ask Jesus to come into your heart – your life, if you would like to go to Heaven when your body dies.
All you have to do (if you do not know already) is to repent of your sins (that is to tell God you are sorry for all the wrong things you have done) and ask Jesus to forgive you. Then you can invite Him in – and yes He will be with you.
Unless you ask Him He will not be part of your life – He does not go where He is not wanted.
So think of all the blessings you will miss out on if you do not invite Him to be with you.
God Bless You
Luke: Chapter 13 verse 3.
I tell you no!
But unless you repent,
you too will all perish.
Jesus said the above words – you may like to read a bit more of that Chapter to know what it is about.
Surely it is a small price for us to pay,
to repent and inherit the Kingdom of Heaven!
Well what does it mean to repent…..
As far as I know it means that we are very sorry for the wrong things that we have done or are doing in our life and would like God to forgive us. As soon as we ask Him to forgive us,(that means we are repenting of doing those wrong things). It also means that we do not want to do them again. Then we can ask Jesus to accept us just as we are and He will.
To acknowledge Jesus as your Lord and Saviour in your life is a marvellous thing. To know that you have repented and will go to Heaven when you leave this Earth is something to look forward to.
May God Bless you today – so that you can be a Blessing to others.
