Jesus Came!

This week during a time of prayer the Lord was reminding me of my very first Christmas as a true believer of Jesus Christ... 
I had always heard of the Lord growing up (all my life my parents took me to church), but when I was 17 years old I had a real and powerful encounter with Jesus.  It was then that I made the decision to follow Jesus and give 100% of my life, my heart, everything to Him.

My first Christmas as a true follower and lover of Jesus, Christmas came ALIVE to me in a whole new way. Every song proclaimed the wonder and greatness of God in a beautiful way.  Every Christmas message carried a new and deeper meaning for me.  It was like all the Christmases before had been in a drab black and white, and now I was experiencing Christmas in color!

  I mean, think about it... Jesus CAME to earth as a baby!  He CAME! He did not just leave us alone, but He cared, He loved enough, our Father God loved us enough to send His only son... Jesus humbled Himself and He came. He came for us...  WOW!

  And Jesus came ALSO to show us true life, show us the way to our loving Father, He came to die for our sins and raise again in great power!  What an amazing God Jesus is and I am so happy He came.  He came to earth for me and for you!
His LOVE for us is everlasting and I stand in awe...

This week, God was reminding me of this.  Jesus is the reason for this season and we have MUCH to celebrate! As we simply remember WHO HE IS and that JESUS CAME for us...
This alone is reason enough to celebrate!

Wishing you a Merry Christmas
 and praying all would have a deeper revelation of the love, character and greatness of Jesus Christ!  
He came for us!
