Merry Christmas!

Who is Jesus? To the shepherds, He was a sign of respect and self-esteem. To the wise men, He was royalty. To the Jews of His day, He wasn’t what they expected. To His mother, Mary, He was God’s love.

This Christmas, I encourage you to read through the Christmas story from the original source—the Bible—and consider who Jesus was to the people involved. You’ll find the story in the first two chapters of the book of Matthew and the book of Luke. If those chapters pique your curiosity, I encourage you to take a leap of faith and keep reading. You’ll find out much more about who Jesus is—and more importantly, who He can be to you today. Merry Christmas!

    Jesus is the key to my survival, I would not make it without him. He is my rock, he is my counselor, he is my true love, he is my compassion, he is my compass, he is my physician, he is my steps, he is my light; the goodness in me is him, he is my friend, He is my savior; for he saved me from a eternal death. Thank you Jesus, I celebrate your birth and what you did on the cross for me. I thank our Father in Heaven for his unconditional love that he sacrificed you so I may be spared from being condemned. Everyday is a great day with the trinity; the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Thank you for watching over me and my family and brothers and sister’s in Christ.
