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.

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
For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus.
1 Timothy 2:5
“Mom! He pinched me!” As children we often ran to our parents when a disagreement broke out between us. Sometimes our parents would tell us to sort it out ourselves, other times they would step in as a mediator, helping us mend our relationship with one another.
When sin entered the world and the relationship between God and man was broken, man had no one to mediate and mend his relationship with God. Only a being who was both deity and human could bridge the gap between man and God. We were stuck, unable to renew our relationship with God.
Aware of our inability to rectify our relationship to Himself, God chose and appointed a Mediator. He sent His son, Jesus, to earth, clothed in the flesh of humanity to become our Savior and Mediator and pay the penalty for our sin. When we believe in Him, our relationship with God is healed and our future destination is secured. Through Christ we can have an intimate relationship with God on earth and throughout eternity. -David Jeremiah
Jesus [Christ] stands between us and God, and for that very reason he stands between us and all other men and things. He is the Mediator … Since the whole world was created through him and unto him … he is the sole Mediator in the world.
The “Rest” of Jesus
In John 17:19 Jesus is praying to The Father. “And I give myself ENTIRELY to you so they also might be ENTIRELY yours.” This was the work of The Savior. “And Jesus said to him, The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests; but The Son of Man has no where to lay His head.” Matt. 8:20. Jesus had no rest in this world. He sacrificed ENTIRELY so that we could be entirely His. He lived entirely for us. Until one day rest came. “When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said ‘It is Finished’; and HE BOWED HIS HEAD, then He gave up the spirit.” John 19:30. He rested when His work was done. He loves us more than we will ever understand. Have a great day. I’m praying for you
