Mid Week Thoughts for Sunday December 21st, 2014
As we journey through Advent and approach Christmas, it is important to remember the coming of the Messiah, the Chosen One, was talked about long before Jesus’ birth. This Sunday is our Christmas Pageant, where our youth and children will tell us the story of the Birth of the One. Here is one of the Scriptures we will use, reminding us of our tie to the Israelites and the past:
2 The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who lived in a land of deep darkness—on them light has shined. 3 You have multiplied the nation, you have increased its joy; they rejoice before you as with joy at the harvest, as people exult when dividing plunder. 4 For the yoke of their burden, and the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor, you have broken as on the day of Midian. 5 For all the boots of the tramping warriors and all the garments rolled in blood shall be burned as fuel for the fire. 6 For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Based upon your experience of God in Christ in your life, what name would you give to the “child born unto us”? I hope as you walk through this season you can feel the light/love of God in Christ breaking into your life – making it brighter. If not, call me – we can talk about that. Seriously, call me because it’s vitally important.
See you Sunday,
