The Value of Christmas? One.

In todays Society!

The world has changed, but humanity has not in relation to attitude and failure and God does not change in His love and other roles!

Christmas is a time of celebration, festivals and family, but it is equally a time of loneliness, regret, rejection and bad thoughts?

God gave to the world His one and only Son Jesus, that by faith we would find a hope and a salvation through his suffering, death and resurrection for us on the cross!

It is up to us to make these essential choices that mark out our eternal destinies?

Numbers 24:17,   Isaiah 7:14,   9:7,   Matthew 2:2-11,   Luke 2:7-20,   John 3:3-7,  14-17.

For God loved….His. One.

He gave us His one and only Son.

This is the crux of the Christian message of hope and Eternity by believing in the death and resurrection of Jesus. God seeks each of us to have a personal relationship with Him, through His son Jesus and not any other way!

There is no mention in the New Testament of praying to Mary to intercede for us, in fact the New Testament makes it very clear that now Jesus has been revealed to the world He is our Intercessor!

In the Old Testament the Prophets had this prominent roles and many Christians misunderstand the scriptures to their peril. We are commanded to pray for each other and there are times that burdens may be carried, but we must not think we can side-line Jesus.

John 3:15-18,  Romans 8:15-16,  1 Timothy 2:1-2,  James 5:14-20.

He has Arisen. Part-One.

Leadership.

On the third day, as he had promised Jesus arose from the dead. He had conqured death and this is how we who have faith are set free from the curse that death is.

Matthew 17:22, Mark 9:30-31, Luke 24:6-7.

We tend to sometimes overlook the account of Peter thinking that this was just his restoration to be forgiven and continue in following, but this has more to do with leadership qualities.

Being a Christian, means that we may be asked to take on some responsibility in our fellowship, from making the tea, to teaching in the Sunday school, youth work or just visiting the older folks.

John 21:15-17.
