Merry Christmas!

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."  
~Isaiah 9:6

This Christmas, let us not only remember that Jesus came to earth in human flesh (although not on this date), but let us rejoice in why He came.  
He came to die so that through His death we might live.  
There is no story so great as the story of Salvation, no love so deep as the love of our Savior, or no life so sweet as the eternity we will spend with Him.  May we fall to our knees in humble thankfulness and overwhelming joy as we rejoice in what Jesus Christ did for us!

"I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels."
~Isaiah 61:10

Praise the Lord for His unconditional love to us!  Let us rejoice, be glad, and honor Him!

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
~Romans 5:8

Merry Christmas, my friends!  May the Lord bless you all!

"Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered."
~Psalm 40:5

I will never forget the first time I sang the "Hallelujah Chorus" with a choir.  Tears came to my eyes and I got chills as realized that I was singing this directly to the Most High King of Kings!
He shall reign for ever and ever!  May we forever praise Him, for He is worthy of our praise!
