What Do You Want for Christmas?

it took a while for me to get Jesus. At first, I just believed in Jesus as the Christ, the one who came to be the sacrifice for me that I might have life with God that begins now and continues through eternity. It was a long time before I saw that He wanted to be more than the one who purchased a ticket to heaven for me.

Jesus Christ is not Your Role Model

Christ was more than a model, for He is the source of the very love that we need to show others.  If we are to love others, we have to do more than try to imitate His behavior, we have to receive Him and His greatest act of love for us.

Our Father

He can be the creator of everything, the All-knowing One, the Ever-present One, the Holy One, and Almighty God and stay distant from our world. Even though He is all those things, He is so much more, because He comes right down in the middle of our world to be daily connected to our lives. Every day He is saying, “I love you.” In every victory, He is there cheering us on. In every defeat, His is there to pick us up.  He is the perfect Father.
