Christmas 2015

Have you ever stopped to think about the greatness of God? Creator of the stars and countless galaxies, creator of every living being, sitting on His thrown in such majesty, worshiped by the cherubim and the seraphim.
Yet, for some reason Our God chose to leave all this glory and came to live in our humble world as a man. His reason was LOVE.

In his letter to the Romans, Saint Paul says 'For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.' (Romans 8:38-39). His love for us is amazing! It was Adam and Eve who chose to separate themselves from God yet God wanted us back, so The Creator took it upon Himself to fix what had been done. 'But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us,' Romans 5:8 The-nativity

For this very reason, our omnipotent God came to live in the midst of humanity.

He came into the world to save us from our sins, so that we can overcome death and live with Him for eternity. He also manifested Himself to the world so that we may get to know Him.

Both shepherds and kings were guided to see and worship baby Jesus, meaning that He came for the rich and the poor, for Jews and Gentiles. He came for you, me and all of humanity. Therefore shouldn't we dedicate some time in our day to get to know our Lord? All it takes is setting aside some time in our day for reading the Bible and saying a prayer, this is how we can discover what the will of God is, naturally if you love someone you'd want to spend time with them, get to know them, and please them.
