Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
A Blessed and Joyous Christmas Season and a Happy, Healthy and Holy New Year to you and your family!
It is an immutable fact that Christ Jesus, the Son of God who was the Son of Man was born into the world, ministered to the people of his day, died, and rose again, to rescue humankind from the jaws of sin, death and eternal darkness. As we head into a new “Year of Grace’, 2019, the question is – Will I receive the life of Christ into all of my being? Will I believe in a Life full of Grace and Truth, that came into the world through Christ Jesus? Will I live into His life, that can light up my whole be-ing – my heart, mind, soul and strength? This Christmas season will I accept the gift that God hold out to me: the power to belong to the family of God as a beloved son, a beloved daughter? I need only receive, believe, and accept into every fibre of my being the Life that is the Light of world, and journey with Him day by day, hour by hour throughout the coming year. Christ Jesus, let your Life be Light of my be-ing.
Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways. (Psalm 128 )
When Jesus takes your hand He keeps you tight.
When Jesus keeps you tight He leads you through life.
When Jesus leads you through life He brings you safely home.
Casper Ten Boom, quoted in Corrie Ten Boom’s book, In My Father’s House
