Our God and Creator,
Our Saviour and Our Lord and King
Oh Thank God for Christmas, Emmanuel, God with us.
Jesus is the Maker of the Universe…
Because all things were created by him: both in the heavens and on the earth, the things that are visible and the things that are invisible. Whether they are thrones or powers, or rulers or authorities, all things were created through him and for him.
Colossians 1:16 CEB
In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. Everything came into being through the Word, and without the Word nothing came into being. What came into being through the Word was life, and the life was the light for all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness doesn’t extinguish the light. The true light that shines on all people was coming into the world. The light was in the world, and the world came into being through the light, but the world didn’t recognize the light. The light came to his own people, and his own people didn’t welcome him. But those who did welcome him, those who believed in his name, he authorized to become God’s children, The Word became flesh and made his home among us. We have seen his glory, glory like that of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth.
John 1:1, 3-5, 9-12, 14 CEB
For God to love the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes on him will not perish but have everlasting life.
Jesus spoke to the people again, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me won’t walk in darkness but will have the light of life.”
John 8:12 CEB
This Christmas I pray the Christ Jesus of Christmas would flood our family with his peace and joy.
“Peace I leave with you. My peace I give you. I give to you not as the world gives. Don’t be troubled or afraid.
John 14:27 CEB
We celebrate this Christ child that came to be born in a manger, to grow up perform many miracles, healing the sick and delivering the captive then to die on a cross and rose on the third day.
He left us all the example we need to have peace ans love ans hope and joy, his forgiveness gives us companionship, fellowship, a sense of belonging and a position in God’s family.
Thank you Father for Jesus!
The Maker of The Universe!
