It’s not what we can do! It’s not what we can make! It’s not about trying to be perfect! It’s not about trying to make your own way! It’s not about trying to be good enough! It’s not about you!
It’s all about Jesus! Not Jesus+ it’s just Jesus! He came that we could have life and life to the full! He came that whosoever would believe in Him would not perish but would have everlasting life! He is the way, the truth, and the life! Nobody comes to the Father except through Him!
Everyday is a day that the Lord has made so we should live them out that way! We should be able to rejoice and be glad in it! We should be able to consider it pure joy when we face trials of many kinds because we know that it builds our faith through perseverance in order that in the end we will be complete and lacking nothing! When we face troubles, we should be able to have hope because we know that Jesus has already overcome the world! We should have hope and faith because we know that Jesus wins the victory and that we will get to spend eternity with Him!
So let’s praise God for Jesus’ birth! We have Christmas day to make it a big celebration and we need to make sure that Jesus is at the center! He is the reason for the season!
We can celebrate Easter because Jesus paid it all on the cross, defeating death and resurrecting on the third day and is now sitting at the right hand of the Father interceding for you and me!
God showed His love by sending Jesus to live amongst us! He isn’t out there somewhere, He is emmanuel – God with us! Even now we don’t need to go through things on our own and by ourselves because Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to be our comforter, our counselor, and our guide! We can have that still quiet voice to help us walk out the life God has prepared in advance for us to accomplish! He can help us to remember that God’s plan is to give us a hope and a future! So let’s cling onto that truth as we pursue Him today! Let’s thrive to accomplish His will so that one day when we get to see Him face to face we will get to hear “well done my good and faithful servant”.
So today let’s take hold of the way to have victory! It is by the blood of the lamb and by the words of our testimony!
Let’s be overcomers through Jesus!
Let’s be rebuilders! Let’s be restorers! Let’s be repairers! All through the love and the power of Jesus!
So today, let’s follow the King of kings and the Lord of lords, that He will accomplish His plans and His purpose for our lives in Jesus’ name!
