Christmas Is…Day 10

Christmas is…

“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call His name Immanuel (which means, God with us).” —Matthew 2:23-24

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” —John 14:6

Jesus makes it clear there is only one way to be reconciled to the Father. Only one way to experience God’s presence in our lives. He is! He is the way, the truth and the life for each of us.

This is a gift from God.

Our part is to simply receive the gift.

Rejoicing in Him!

  • genuine, not artificial, no additives
  • to stop deceiving oneself or fooling around; face reality

Things are constantly in a state of flux —from our weather, to our economic and political situation and even our everyday lives at times.  It’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of whatever has blown into our lives at the moment.  It’s easy to lose perspective.  It’s easy to become discouraged and feel overwhelmed by all life is throwing at us.  And our tendency and habit is to put on our “happy face” masks and walk around feeling isolated and alone, as if we are the only ones dealing with disappointment, discouragement and defeat.

They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served something created instead of the Creator, who is praised forever. —Romans 1:25

So where do we go for answers and how do we find purpose, joy, contentment and peace in the midst of life’s craziness? Continue reading “Get Real!”
