Jesus is God’s perfect, indescribable gift. The amazing thing is that not only are we able to receive this gift, but we are able to share it with others on Christmas and every day of the year. – Joel Osteen
God remembered his people, and became a Man. His main purpose was to serve, to reflect the special love God has for his people and to reveal his compassion and glory. He came to reveal true knowledge about God, more than any man had previously done.
As a Father, he expects us to have a good relationship with him and with one another. He also wants us to spend a lot of our time with him in order to understand our true position before him, and to express it to others through our lives. Jesus did not compromise his role and place in life but stood up for what is good and right in the eyes of God. He not only came to rule our lives but to fill us with his love and kindness.
In his presence we will experience peace – real peace, because “Immanuel” means “God with us”. The world cannot give peace; it can only take it away from you. In a relationship with the living God, you will experience peace, and this can only be acquired through God’s Spirit in you. This is our privilege – reconciling people with the Prince of Peace, helping them to live in peace with their Creator.
Christmas time is also the time to reconcile with our families who may have been neglected during the year. May we walk with our Counsellor, our heavenly Father and experience the beauty of life, the strength of real love and the comfort of the presence of God Almighty.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: And the government shall be upon his shoulder: And his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, and The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end.
