Tis the season to be jolly falalalala lalalala….
This is a featured post by a wonderful writier, her gift to us this Christmas.
Love came down on Christmas, love pure and true, love satisfying, love full and free.Yes Christmas !!! the season were everyone is excited, a time when we all drink, eat and make merry.
But is that what Christmas is all about…….hmm, so what is Christmas ?Christmas is a season to reflect on the love of God, yes I said it the love of God.That He loves us so much and sent his only perfect son that knew no sin, I mean He was literally k-clean, no spot, sparkling white( I guess I’ve painted the picture of the whole no sin part) to earth to die for us.
I keep thinking about it, Master Jesus would have easily refused his Fathers instruction and said “oh no Father this assignment is too much for me to carry out. So you mean I should go to earth, lay down my life for your sinful children, no way Father this task is too great for me to perform”. But no, he simply obeyed and said YES….How many of us can say yes to God’s calling? How many can proudly identify as being a Christian? How many of us simply follow the instructions of God….We are all called to portray the love of God through our words, actions, our services, how we interact with people, how we make them feel.He said in his word that “while we were still sinners He died for us”, so who are we not to love.
We were made from love, to love, with love so that we can love others and receive love.
As children of God, the act of love should be a lifestyle that emits from us naturally.So as we spend this Christmas in our respective homes, place of work, anywhere make sure you reflect Christ in all that you do. Be a blessing to someone, let others see Jesus in you.
And I leave you with this scripture Proverbs 16:24 Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the mind and healing to the body.
So in the spirit of glad tiding be a blessing to someone, bless someone with your words remember words are powerful.Jesus is the reason for the season. Merry Christmas.
