DECEMBER 16 – THE ONE

12/16               1 Timothy 1:15-17

15This is a trustworthy saying, and everyone should accept it: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”—and I am the worst of them all. 16 But God had mercy on me so that Christ Jesus could use me as a prime example of his great patience with even the worst sinners. Then others will realize that they, too, can believe in him and receive eternal life. 17 All honor and glory to God forever and ever! He is the eternal King, the unseen one who never dies; he alone is God. Amen. 

THE ONE

Jesus is the One way to the Father. He is the exact representation of God and brings the eternal infinite God to a sinful, lost and finite mankind.  Jesus is the way the truth and the life and He is the perfect One who paid our price for salvation, relationship and eternal life. 

 

 

DECEMBER 15 – JESUS

12/15               Micah 5:2

2 But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, are only a small village among all the people of Judah. Yet a ruler of Israel, whose origins are in the distant past, will come from you on my behalf. 

JESUS

Jesus is the Creative Agent of the Godhead.  He is Lord and the plan for Him to save us was put into place by Father, Son and Holy Spirit prior to there being anything but them for all things were made by Him and for Him.  Jesus is Lord-Rejoice for our joy is complete. 

DECEMBER 14 – TIME

12/14               Galatians 4:4-5

4 But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law. 

5 God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children. 

TIME

GOD rules over time.  He is not limited by it nor is He without complete understanding and knowledge about all time.  He reached into our world in Christ and provided a way that we could be free in Christ. 

 

 

DECEMBER 13 – ALL

12/13               Romans 6:23

23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

ALL

All are dead in their trespasses and sin.  God’s free gift to us is the gift of life in Jesus Christ.  He is the only way to the Father.  We can do what we want, say what we want and believe what we want but there is only ONE way to the Father and that is through faith in Jesus. 

 

 

DECEMBER 12 – SEEN

12/12               John 1:14

14 So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.

SEEN

If we have a relationship with Jesus we have seen Him.  Maybe in our mind’s eye or in a vision or in a dream but for sure we have a relationship with the living Lord Jesus when we have asked for forgiveness and let Him have control of our life.  He is Lord and He will give us the wisdom, mercy, grace and understanding that we need to live a Godly life on a daily basis.  His Word for us is always in the now. 

 

 

DECEMBER 11 – VICTORY

12/11               Isaiah 11:1

1 Out of the stump of David’s family will grow a shoot— yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root. 

VICTORY

Our Triune God before the foundation of the world had a plan for our salvation.  Jesus is God’s plan and He is the only way to the Father. 

DECEMBER 10 – JESUS

12/10               Isaiah 7:14

14 All right then, the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’). 

JESUS

Born in Bethlehem.  He lived a perfect life.  He died a perfect death.  Raised from the dead by the power of God, Jesus is alive.  He defeated death.  He paid the price for our forgiveness.  Jesus is Lord of all.  Praise God from whom all blessings come. 

 

 

DECEMBER 9 – TODAY

12/09               1 Thessalonians 5:18

18 Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.

TODAY

We can always think we will be thankful tomorrow but the Word tells us to be thankful today.  We can only live now and what is going on in our life now is exactly what we have to be thankful. 

 

 

DECEMBER 8 – PEOPLE

12/08               Romans 16:6

6 Give my greetings to Mary, who has worked so hard for your benefit. 

PEOPLE

People count with the Lord.  You count.  I count.  We may not be kings or queens but we count with the Lord Jesus Christ.  Jesus is concerned about everything that happens in our life.  He is seeking our best good.  Jesus loves you. 

DECEMBER 7 – CONTROL

12/07               Jeremiah 33:11

11the sounds of joy and laughter. The joyful voices of bridegrooms and brides will be heard again, along with the joyous songs of people bringing thanksgiving offerings to the LORD . They will sing, ‘Give thanks to the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, for the LORD is good. His faithful love endures forever!’ For I will restore the prosperity of this land to what it was in the past, says the LORD. 

CONTROL

Let Jesus have control of your life.  He will give you what you need to lead a fruitful and joyous life.  Thank the Lord for He is good and He is good to us.
