The Value of Christmas? Two.

A time of answers and Miracles!

The Christmas story is full of answers and miracles, it shows us a loving God who is giving us His one and only Son so that we might believe and be saved back into a personal relationship with Him!

But the world chases after its own answers believing that psychology, sparkling things and money will fill the voids of doubts, disappointment and pain? People turn to alcohol, to tech, to financial security and some to the religion of their choice believing that by austere living they can purge themselves?

Salvation is only found in Jesus and that of seeking His forgiveness and turning away from our pasts knowing that He will give to us a New Life!

Luke 1:46-56,    67-79,    2:25-32,    34-35,    36-38,    John 1:1-5,    3:3,    3:15-16,    Galatians 3:13,    4:4-5.

Forty Days. Part-Two.

Peter Restored.

Peter allow us to see how mercyful Jesus is to believers who keep failing and Peter was to fall again over dietry hypocrasy pointed out to him by the Apostle Paul. Peter fell into this sin, even though he had the vision of the sheet coming down and going up to Heaven.

This really shows us how fickle we all are to having the blessings and still loosing it at some point to some weakness that just keeps coming up again and again.

John 21:15-25,  Acts 10:13,  11:7.

Seeing is believing?

What Thomas saw of Jesus was proof to him that Jesus had really risen from the dead. But Jesus said blessed are those who do not see, yet they believe. John 20:29. Over the centuries and through the generations millions of people have applied faith to believing and trusting in God, in Jesus and the Church has grown and grown. But to believe has to be by faith, not good works or anything else. 1 Peter 1:8, 1 John 4:19, 2 Corinthians 5:14-15, Hebrews 11:1, 27.
