The Christmas Gift

By

This season, those of us that are Christians are celebrating a season for a reason.  The Messiah was born!  But the news of the Christ being born is even bigger!  Christ is  the Savior, through God’s word once you accept Jesus into your heart you inherit the kingdom (1 Corinthians 6:9)

So here’s the twist, it’s doesn’t say in death you inherit  the kingdom of heaven.  It doesn’t say that’s a theory or an idea. The kingdom is available to all that is righteous.  So here’s a bit more for you to think about… 

2 Corinthians 5:14+15 -For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died.  And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.

So how do you live for him?  Well, there is a desire in your heart and where did that desire come from?  You want to provide for your kids so they can be all God called them to be?  You have a desire to travel?  Maybe God wants someone on that trip to cross your path? There is a desire in your heart and you either make a decision for that desire to become a reality or you choose not to live for HIM, he who put that desire in you.

You numb out your desires and consider them dumb fantasies and maybe one day you will… You heard a pastor preach some message about being content with what God has given you and some how you thought that meant you don’t work toward a purpose!  What purpose are you working toward? He designed you for more then this, that’s why he planted that desire in you?

How are you maximizing the Gift you were given through Jesus this season?  Is 2013 going to be repeated in 2014?  The truth is God gave you the free will to choose him and the free will to allow YOU to work toward those desires that HE HAS PLACED IN YOU!

Merry Christmas,
