‘The Magi threw themselves down before him, worshiping. Then they opened their presents and gave him gold, frankincense and myrrh’. . [Isaiah 9:6-7]
I want to wish all my blog followers a very happy Christmas and a successful and prosperous new year. Thank you for following my posts, and I pray and hope you stay with me in the New Year?
“And so this is Christmas and what have we done?” [John Lennon] Okay, I know it’s Christmas day and you just want to get on with the job at hand of making this the best Christmas ever! But you know it never really happens in the secular sense! The Magi travelled 8-900 miles to find the King of all kings. It took them up to two years to get to Bethlehem! Jesus was now a child and not a baby; living in a house and not laying in a manger in a stable! [Matthew 2:11 N.I.V.] And what was the first thing they did? They fell to the ground and worshipped Him! May I be bold enough to challenge us this morning of Christmas day? Have we found time to get in to His PRESENCE and worshipped Him first before anything else? I challenge myself too! I have found time, but was it worthy of the King of kings? This is no guilt trip I’m trying to put us on! If we start with Jesus then the rest of the day will be much more peaceful than if we forget Him!
And so, I will shut up and practice what I teach LOL! Enjoy the day, have fun and fellowship with your family and though this is not officially when Jesus was born, well does it matter? We worship Christ Jesus every day, but this one-day is special! Let’s make it extra special today. God bless and enjoy.
PRAYER ‘O come let us adore Him Christ the Lord’ ‘What can I bring Him poor as I am, If I were a shepherd I would bring a lamb, if I were a wise man I would do my part, yet what I can I give Him give my heart’ Lord Jesus Christ. You are my God and King. I come in to your PRESENCE and adore you; I worship before you for there is none like you. I have no lamb to bring you and I have no gold frankincense or myrrh, but what I have I bring to you, I give you my heart this day. For your glory Jesus amen.
