Hurray!!! Xmas is here again as we step into the month of December gloriously in God’s love.
For me, I am so grateful to God for making it possible that we both are alive to celebrate this year’s Xmas period in love.
Are you aware that so many people saw the beginning of November but could not see 1st of December of this year 2018?
If you know that, what are you waiting for to JUMP UP AND SHOUT …THAAAAAAANK YOU JESUS!!!!!?
XMAS – SEASON OF LOVE
Each time the Xmas period comes around, it symbolizes love.
This love is what the Holy Bible taught us where it was clear in John 3:16…
For God so love the world that He gave His only begotten son…
It was for the Love God has on us that Jesus Christ was sent to be born among us.
Therefore, let us always show true love to one another as this is what the season symbolizes…
XMAS – SEASON OF SACRIFICE
God showed us indisputable love and paid the ultimate sacrifice by allowing His only begotten son to be born among mere humans…
Who could do this for us if not Christ?? None!!!
SEASON OF HUMILITY
Have you ever imagined whether any president, governor or minister can allow his son attend a poor school? How much more dwelling in a ghetto????
Oh this was the peak of humility that he was born in the manger.
Let us learn to always be humble in all situations no matter who we think we are, let us remember Jesus has showed us the way to go.
SEASON OF GIVING AND RECEIVING GIFTS
Gifts are expressions of how we truly feel towards or about people around us. When we give quality gifts, it means we value the person.
Our Lord Jesus Christ received the precious gifts of Gold (True love and Kingship), frankincense (as a symbol of priesthood) and Myrrh (willingness to surrender to God’s will).
So, be careful what you give or receive from people this period. Ask yourself… Is this gift truly defining my purpose in life?
So, what have you learnt from this? For me, I have learnt what to give to my family, neighbors, friends and the world at large.
What is that which I need to give this period?
May our gifts this period be sacrificial Love, Humility and sincere service to mankind in general…
