"Christmas is for Jesus" from Luke 2:1-7
Every Christmas season; we are so busy planning Christmas party, gift to buy, making a wish-list, budgets for groceries and etc...
But have you ever thought what is Christmas all about?
It is like an example story of a baby baptism, everybody was so happy to drink and eat and they have forgotten what the celebration is all about and left the baby in one room...
In our life we must be careful the true meaning of Christmas is for Jesus, to put him on number 1 priority, don't get caught up in the things of the world being so busy that you forgot to go to Church, read the Bible and pray.
The road to hell is wide but the road to Heaven is narrow, only few are saved.
If you put Jesus first the world is going to call you names they will think you are weird and (in Tagalog mapagkunwari)
Let your petitions be prayed to Jesus and not to worry about life and celebrate Jesus as center of your life then prosperity comes.
The meaning of Bethlehem is House of bread.
No matter how big your sin are humble yourself and surrender your life to Lord God, read Revelation 3:20.
It's our free choice if you let Jesus to come into your heart.
The two (2) disappointment in Life:
- You didn't get everything you want. and
- You get everything you wanted, even if you get everything you want you won't be happy, why? As King Solomon has everything, he is rich, he has so many wives (seven thousand) but he said "none of this really matters".
Because only Jesus can give you satisfaction.
Put Jesus Christ as the center of everything, put him as the reason we are alive. We were born to honor God and surrender our life to God.
Christmas is for Jesus, he wants to come in and fulfill your purpose in life. It is more blessing to give than to receive.
Isaiah 55:1 "Come, all you whe are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.
=God invites us to come and be satisfied with relationship with Him. The gospel is free and a relationship with God is free. The best thing in life is free, but often taken for granted.
