All Gods promises celebrate his promises.
These are the words I had in my mind one morning as I was fixing my breakfast.
One of Gods promises that we are celebrating this time of year is: “And she shall bring forth a son and his name shall JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” That’s found in God’s word in the book of Matthew chapter one verse twenty-one.
The promise is two-fold. The part that has been fulfilled is she shall bring forth a son and thou shall call his name Jesus.
The second part is: For he shall save his people from their sins. That started when he gave his life on the cross to save you and me. Salvation is a gift that he has given to us. With that gift we also can receive another wonderful gift. The gift of eternal life. Have you received that wonderful gift of salvation? You can experience the true meaning of Christmas by accepting and receiving what he did for us on the cross.
Here is a little chorus I sung when I was little with a children’s choir.
God sent his son to everyone at Christmas time at Christmas time.
Tell the news to everyone at Christmas time at Christmas time.
If you will receive him there is one other promise that I would like to share with you.
It’s found in God’s word in Hebrews chapter thirteen verse five the latter part of the verse. It says, I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.
That’s another promise to celebrate. He will always be with us to guide us, to comfort us and he loves us. He never withdraws his love and we are always in his care.
Whatever problems we are having we can bring to him. He is there to help us.
Here is a few words of a song that is about that very thing.
Bring him every question in your heart
The doubt that’s tearing you apart
Your deepest hurts your greatest scars
God can take it
Bring him all the bitterness inside
Shame that you wish you could hide
The fear that keeps you paralyzed
God can take it
You don’t have to be afraid
Cause he won’t turn you away
He can take whatever’s broken make it just like new
You won’t even recognize it when he’s through
He will use it for his glory
Use it for your good
If you let it go
He can take it
Words sung by Brian Free and Assurance.
Name of song that the words are from: He Can Take It
Hope you can celebrate the true meaning of Christmas this year. Merry Christmas!
