Happy birthday Yeshua! The baby who came into this world like no other. Most children are born into this world with people considering what they can do for that baby. With Christ, the world held it's breath in anticipation of what He was going to do for them.That is a lot of weight for such tiny shoulders. When he entered this world it was a cold dark place where men had overwritten God's word in favor of profit. Still happens. Religion was business and business was good. He was to be a pebble in the shoe of organized religion. He didn't upset the apple cart, He tossed it. His birth signaled a new beginning for all of God's people who would receive it. Anyone who is in Christ knows the absolute joy and peace that knowing and loving God brings. Anyone who is in Christ. Peace does not exist standing on the sidelines and cheering on the players. When they win you have no claim to the prize and praise that awaits them for their victory. You need to be on the field. You need to get dirty. Followers of Christ are called to follow in His footsteps. Before He ascended into Heaven He gave final instructions for his disciples/followers. You find His words in Mathew 28:18-20. "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age." That charge is for all of God's people. I heard a sad statistic today that three out of ten people in the United States identify as having no belief in God. None. Translated, no relationship with God. Further translated, no peace. Christ is the light of this world and we are also charged to be a light. Philippians 2. Mat 5:14-15. So, go tell it on the mountain, the beach, on line at the Starbucks, produce people at the supermarket.... Share your life and your faith. One life can make a difference. If you are already doing this, yay!!! Please share below the most effective ways you have found to share your faith. If you are not, though you want to, but don't know where to start...send us an email. I can share some thoughts. I have been blessed with a lot of Christ centered and patient instruction, as has Rob, and either of us would be glad to talk and share what we have learned. Iron sharpens iron. Merry Christmas all!
