MERRY CHRISTMAS What Christmas Really Means

Published

BE GRATEFUL It’s Thanksgiving

TO THE BIBLE: Luke 2:11
“For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
LET’S TALK
Christmas is a time when God’s children all over the world celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. But have you ever asked yourself what “C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S” means?
“C” means “Christ has come!” Christ is born and is here now!
“H” stands for “Hope.” We’re at rest now, because Christ has come, and our hope for a glorious life has been fulfilled.
“R” means “Righteousness!” There’s no need to struggle to please God with our own works of righteousness, because He has made us the epitome of His own righteousness (2 Corinthians 5:21).
“I” means “Inheritance!” An inheritance has been bestowed on us; we’re no longer poor. Rather, we’re joint-heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17).
“S” means “Salvation.” Salvation has been consummated, since Christ has come.
“T” means “Tell the untold that Christ has come.” Tell someone about Jesus today!
“M” means “Ministry,” which refers to taking our place as ministers of reconciliation. And what is the message of that ministry?
That’s what “A” stands for—“Acceptance!” We’re to tell the whole world that they’ve been forgiven and accepted by the Father, irrespective of their past. God is not counting their sins against them (2 Corinthians 5:19).
The final “S” refers to sonship. Now that we are accepted in Him, He has brought us into “sonship!” (1 John 3:2). This is what Christmas means. So, as you celebrate today, think on these things, and your Christmas will be glorious. Merry Christmas!
Go Deeper: Isaiah 9:6, Luke 2:9-14
Pray
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for the birth of Jesus Christ that has made it possible for me to be a partaker and a distributor of the divine life! I celebrate today, because I understand what Christmas really means. Thank you for bringing me into oneness with you, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Act
Win a soul to the Lord today. Let that person know what Christ’s birth brought about for him or her.

But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17).

Being born again, and having received the Holy Spirit, you’re one with the Lord.

But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17).

Being born again, and having received the Holy Spirit, you’re one with the Lord. He’s come to dwell within you and has mingled with your spirit.
His purpose from the foundation of the world was to be inseparably united with you.

He’s one with Jesus; He was so much one with Jesus that when Philip asked Jesus in John 14, “Show us the Father and we will be satisfied,” His response to Philip was, “Have I been such a long time with you and have you not known me, Philip?” Then He added, “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. I’m in the Father, and the Father is in me.”

He wanted us to understand His oneness with the Father, and that oneness with the Father is what He brought us into. 1 John 1:3 NKJV tells us,* “…truly our fellowship (our oneness, our union) *is with the Father and with His son Jesus Christ.”

Being born again, and having received the Holy Spirit, you’re one with the Lord.

Jesus prayed about this before He went to the Cross; referring to all those who’d believe in Him, He said, “That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us…” (John 17:21). He so wanted us to be inseparably one with Him and the Father that the world wouldn’t be able to separate us from Him. And that’s what has happened. Even the angels are enthused by this, because they now look at us, and see Jesus! That’s Christianity—Christ in you; the Father’s Kingdom at work in you. Hallelujah!

1 Corinthians 1:9 says, “God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.” This was all God ever wanted, but it was a mystery from the foundation of the world (Colossians 1:26-27). But blessed be God! The Lord Jesus gave us His life to make it possible. Now, anything that belongs to the Father belongs to us, because we’re one with Him; you’re His heir, and a joint-heir with Christ. Hallelujah!

PRAYER
Dear Father, what a great honour and privilege it is to be inseparably one with you. I’ll always be a victor, and walk in sync with your perfect will for me because you guide me in all things. Thank you for the guidance, promptings and blessings I receive through the Spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

FURTHER STUDY:
*Ephesians 5:30; *
For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

*Colossians 1:18; *
And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

John 15:5 AMPC
I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.

SEPTEMBER 14, 2020: HE HAS MY HEART!

I declare that I’m in Christ, born again and full of the Holy Spirit. He has my heart! I have the life and nature of God in my heart. There’s a change in my heart; a transformation inside. I experience transformation and glory in my soul and body as a result of the impact and influence of the life and nature of God in my spirit. The Kingdom of God is set up in my heart. The Holy Spirit finds expression in my heart, dispensing His love through me. Out of the good treasures of my heart, I bring forth good. I’m mightily blessed by the Holy Spirit. I’m a life-giver. Thank You dear Father, for setting up your Kingdom in my heart. With my heart, I envision and apprehend the realities of the Gospel and of our Kingdom-life. I pray for the unsaved around the world, that their hearts be open to receive the Gospel, and be saved; that your power for salvation will mantle their hearts even now, in Jesus’ Name. Amen. Hallelujah!

I declare that I'm in Christ, born again and full of the Holy Spirit. He has my heart!
