The Light Reveals.
At His Birth, the angels praised God.
At His Birth, the shepherds told about God.
At His Birth, Mary pondered the things told to her by God.
At His Birth, Joseph remembered the dream from God.
At His Birth, the wise men followed the star from God.
BUT, At His Birth, Jesus REVEALED God.
At His Birth, John foretold “The One who is the true Light, who gives light to everyone was going to come into the world.” John 1:9
At His Birth, Simeon stated “I have seen The Savior You have given to all people. He is a light to REVEAL God to the nations.” Like 2:30
Before His Death, Jesus prayed, “And I have REVEALED YOU to them and will keep on REVEALING YOU to them. I will do this so that your love for me may be in them and I in them.” John 17:26.
At His birth, We See GOD.
I’m praying for you.

The Light Reveals.
Thankful = Happy!
“Happy are those who have The God of Israel as their helper, whose hope is in The Lord their God. The Lord lifts the burdens of those bent beneath their loads.” Psalms 146:5-10(NLT). “He heals the brokenhearted, binding up their wounds. He counts the stars and calls them all by name. How great is our Lord! His power is absolute! His understanding is beyond comprehension. The Lord supports the humble. The Lord’s delight is in those who honor Him, those who put their hope in His unfailing love.” Ps. 147. “Happy indeed are those whose God is The Lord.” Be Happy. Rest in Him. I’m praying for you.
“O my people, listen as I speak…I am God, your God! I have no complaint about your sacrifices…But I want more. I don’t need the bulls you sacrifice… What I want instead is your TRUE THANKS to God. I want you to fulfill your vows to the Most High. Trust me in your times of trouble and I will rescue you and you will give me glory. Giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me.” Psalms 50:8-25. Like King David, God wants us to say-“I know The Lord is always with me. No wonder my heart is filled with joy and my mouth shouts His praises. My body rests in hope.” Acts 2:25-26. Thanksgiving is the sacrifice that honors our Savior. Have a great day. I’m praying for you.
God Did It !
“God The Father CHOSE YOU long ago, and The Spirit has MADE YOU HOLY. As a result, you have obeyed Jesus Christ and are cleansed by His Blood…Now we live with a wonderful expectation because Jesus rose from the dead…For God has reserved a priceless inheritance for His children…And God, in His mighty power, will protect you until you receive this salvation, because you are trusting Him…So be truly glad! There is wonderful joy ahead, even though it is necessary for you to endure many trials for a while.” 1Peter 1:2-9 (NLT) “All honor to The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for it is by His boundless mercy that God has given us the privilege of being born again!” 1Peter 1:3. God did it all! I’m praying for you
The Production of God.
“Be careful to put into action God’s saving work in your lives, obeying God with deep reverence and fear. For God is working in you, giving you the desire to obey Him and the power to do what pleases Him. Hold tightly to the Word of Life. For God’s way of making us right with Himself depends on faith. As a result, I can really know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised Him from the dead.” Philippians 2:13, 3:9-10. “We are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10. “We put no confidence in human effort. Instead, we boast about what Christ Jesus has done for us.” Phil. 3:3(NLT). God continually produces His work in us. Don’t trust in yourself. Depend on Him. I’m praying for you
Where is Wisdom?
Need answers? Have problems? Need love?
Mark 4:34 “In fact, in His ( Jesus ) public teaching He taught only with parables, but afterward WHEN HE WAS ALONE with his disciples, he explained the meaning to them. Matthew 6, Jesus teaches us to be ALONE WITH GOD. Vs. 4 “Give your gifts in secret…” Vs. 6 ” But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you and pray to your Father secretly. Then your Father, who knows all secrets, will reward you.” Vs. 16-18 -fasting is in secret. Vs. 18 “Then no one will suspect you are fasting, except your Father, who knows what you do in secret. And your Father, who knows all secrets, will reward you.” Vs. 19-34 -all your secret worries are known by God. Vs. 31-33 “So don’t worry about having enough food or drink or clothing… Your Heavenly Father already knows all your needs…”
Every answer is in the quiet arms of our Father. I’m praying for you
‘Tis a Charming Sound
For the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God.
To understand the link between Law and Grace, remember that God is pure, perfect, holy, and righteous. We are not; but without a measuring stick we can’t see how truly sinful we are. When God gave the Ten Commandments (which is the Law in its essence), He revealed His character in a way that allows us to measure ourselves by His holiness. Standing on tiptoe and trying to be as tall as the Law can never save us. The Law simply shows our deficiency.
It also reveals our need for Grace. When Christ came, He perfectly fulfilled the Law; and when He died on the cross, He took our failures upon Himself and transferred His righteousness to our account.
There was nothing wrong with the Law; it simply defined sin. But it also prepared us for a better hope — the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ through whom we draw near to God. The Law was conditional, but Christ’s redemption is unmerited, unconditional, final, and worthy of praise forever. -David Jeremiah
Grace first inscribed my name in God’s eternal book; ‘Twas grace that gave me to the Lamb, who all my sorrows took.
Philip Doddridge, in the hymn “Grace, ‘Tis a Charming Sound”
