Merry Christmas to all.
During this time, most of us are caught up in the motion of the “season”- buying gifts, preparing food, setting up decorations and forgetting why are we all doing this.
More than anything, I think today is a story of HIS GRACE. I was reading the book of Revelation this morning and how awesome it is to be reminded that JESUS came and died for us. He alone is worthy! … and along with that, He also made us His royal priests, (Revelations 5:9) -called to proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.- 1 Peter 2:9.
It’s just good to just sit down and marvel at what JESUS has done, then once our hearts are set right, we can now celebrate and REJOICE with other believers and even non believers who are open to finding out what Christmas is all about – today is an opportunity to let them know why the world should be celebrating and when we give our gifts to other people- the most important gift we can give them is sharing what Jesus has done for us.
My best friend (Joy – down in my heart) shared an awesome idea of buying a cake which says “Happy Birthday Jesus”. This is a good start to maintain our focus on the celebrant!
So Rejoice!!! God came and promised those who believed in Him shall have eternal life (John 3:16)
These are awesome verses from the book of Revelation:
3 But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it. 4 I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside. 5 Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”
 And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people.  And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased for God persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.  You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth.”
 In a loud voice they were saying: “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!”  Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying: “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!”
Sharing this wonderful song about HIS AMAZING GRACE:
“This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross
You lay down Your life
That I would be set free
Oh, Jesus, I sing for
All that You’ve done for me”
Glory to God for giving me this time to pause and just PRAISE HIM.. before I become “Martha, Martha” again..hehe.. :D.. will still have to cook for tonight’s Christmas Dinner.
