Christmas is the time of the year where we think about the Baby born in Bethlehem and how He has brought to us a new life with hope, peace, joy and love. Remember that He loves you and that He has broken the chains of slavery in your life to sin through His death, burial and resurrection. Yes, we go on to sin and even in some cases we choose to allow ourselves to be enslaved again. But, our God is a great and mighty God who is more powerful than anything that will come our way. Remember this is a spiritual battle that we are in and with God on your side and you trusting in Him and holding on to Him, you will make it through no matter what comes your way. “Trust and obey, for there’s no other way, to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.” The second verse says this, “Not a burden we bear, Not a sorrow we share, But our toil He doth richly repay: Not a grief or a loss, Not a frown or a cross, but is blest if we trust and obey.”
Remember that Jesus is the prophesied Messiah that has come to set His people free and we are to rejoice in Him. For He is “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6) Amen and amen!
