I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward. Gen 15:1
My dearest sister and brother I greet you all in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of the most high God, who because of His love and mercies towards us sent us Jesus, the light of the world, the peace to the troubled nation and the distraught mind. Jesus is the life, the truth and the living water.
What a year this had been, it has definitely been the survival of the fittest. A year of financial crisis, high unemployment, persecution of Christians around the world, natural disasters from Asia to Australia. Jesus said ‘I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world’. John 16:33.
So as a Christian we are well equipped through His words in the Holy Bible that in this temporal world we live in it comes with its own troubles all we need is the sustaining power to overcome it. Jesus is our sustenance our food when we go through famine, our strength when we are weak, our companion when we are lonely, our provider when we are financially stricken. Our Joy in time of sorrow. Our hope that joy will come in the morning.
A life without Jesus is a hopeless life, a chaotic life, a lonely life, a restless life. That is why millions of people celebrate with a grateful and joyous, appreciative heart the birth of Jesus into the world. As for me my friend, I will not be writing this with boldness without Him, Jesus is the only way. Why would you decide to leave a lonely life, when Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart, waiting for you to open it so He can enter and eat with you.
