While reading “My Utmost For His Highest,” by Oswald Chambers, I found this: “His Birth And Our New Birth.” Isaiah 7:14 (Rv). His birth is history. “Therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God” (Luke 1 :35). Jesus Christ was born into this world, not from it. He did not evolve out of history; He came into history from the outside. Jesus Christ is not the best human being. He is a being who cannot be accounted for by the human race at all. He is not Man becoming God, but God incarnate, God coming into human flesh, coming into it from outside. His life is the highest and the Holiest entering in at the lowliest door. Our Lord was an advent. “God manifested in the flesh,” that is what is made profoundly possible for you and me by the Redemption.
HELLO MORENO VALLEY
“Where Dreams Soar”
Moreno Valley: What a wonderful time of the year, celebrated so many ways. For some it is a very sad and lonely time. It is a time of shopping, cooking putting up the beautiful decorations, gathering with family and friends. But our greatest celebration is to really know the Reason for the Season and to be given such a gift. I read that the real Christmas is all about Him not us. Let us make Christmas all about Him not us this year. One year, when my children were in high school we went back in time and had Christmas as it was when we were children. It was a great family time. The children enjoyed hearing the story of the Birth of Jesus. Readers I pray that you had a very blessed and Merry Christmas and a wonderful safe Happy New Year. Remember to say, “Recession will not rest in this home, because I’m living in the overflow.” Whatever a man or woman says out of their mouth and believe it with their heart, it shall come to pass.
Overseer Christopher J. Harris wrote about “Hope For Tomorrow.” In many places around the world, there are people who have been in the Christmas mood for a while with gifts, dinners, shopping, sports and a number of other things that signal this annual holiday. But did you ever stop to think what Christmas is really about, other than to say, “Oh it’s about Jesus’ birth.” Overseer Harris believes the real meaning of Christmas is about hope. Hope is the expectation of a promise being fulfilled. And as we inspect our lives, we can see the truth of Proverbs 13:12. The truth of our future starts right now.
We are about to enter into a new year. Let us encourage someone to walk into 2012 with great joy and encouragement into our hearts and know that this is your year of manifesting a banner year for you and your family. Whatever God has for you, it will be great. Guess what? Even your garden is going to be awesome. In 2012 you will start afresh.
