Merry Christmas Today

In December of 1941, America's course and culture were changed by a day that will live in infamy. Pearl Harbor re-shaped US history and a darker facet of globalism was revealed in the smoking hulks of once proud battleships. A terrifying day at Hiroshima in 1945 awakened fears that would haunt the pioneering generation of the nuclear age. Men harnessed the power of unthinkable destruction and demonstrated the will to use it.

A day in Dallas Texas in 1963 defined a generation - as the news of Kennedy's assasination rocked the globe.

And a U S Supreme Court decision in 1973 opened the floodgates for an unending slaughter of innocent life, making a mother's womb the most dangerous place in America.

And then a day we all simply refer to as 9/11 changed the way we travel, the way we live, and the way we perceive safety ....and ourselves.

We can all list pivotal days in our lives that have changed our focus, our families and our faith - for better or for worse; from our creation until the last beat of our heart, and nothing compares to the day that everything changed; the day Jesus was born.

This baby was born in humble surroundings and troubled times, to a peasant class of an oppressed and conquered race. He came into a world dominated by the Roman empire, that based everything on glory and power. By choice - the Son of God was born into a simple village lifestyle, stripped of heros, and blemished by strife and brutality. Even the religious were corrupt and complacent.

And not much has changed since that day.... Right now we are in the middle of two wars in the Middle East, and tensions around the world increase. Negotiated treaties change nothing - as countries experience one crisis after another. From the halls of Congress to the United Nations, one can search for the selfless motive of love - only to find it isn't there.....

" For God so loved the world that He gave...." still separates Jesus and the gospel - apart from every philosophy, initiative, amendment, and law - passed and embraced by our government. In his last days, even Napoleon stuggled to understand the nature of God revealed in Jesus Christ. In exile, he wrote "Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I - have founded empires by force, and they are gone. Jesus Christ alone founded His empire on love, and at this hour millions of men would die for Him whom they have never seen..."

Love is power unequaled by bombs, or bullets, and is capable of changing everything it touches. Jesus changed the world because He chose to come to earth as 'God with us'.... In so doing - Jesus set Himself apart from every king and ruler. Whereas others fought against challengers, He chose to embrace the common man, offering the gift of intimacy and love and hope. What He said in essence was, "I really enjoy being with you. In fact, I love you so much, that I want to walk with you every day...." This is what His arrival in Bethlehem heralded. While earthly leaders ascend to power, God in the flesh (John 1:1,14) descended - to empower the least... the last... the lonely... and the losers.... That kind of power - originating with Jesus, is the kind of power that will change everything.This King didn't change things through institutions or governmental rule, or walls and towers, or moats and armies, but through truth and love, planted as faith - in the hearts of ordinary people. He stands apart from other leaders, and presidents, and rulers or kings, because He doesn't promote Himself or impose Himself on others, but rather - gives of Himself freely. He came like no other, loves like no other, lived like no other, and died like no other - only to arise from the dead (like no other) to blaze a trail through this world into the beyond - for everyone that believes in His name.

Jesus changed everything by offering a lifelong purpose: to know God and to make Him known.... Without Him, our lives are like fishing in a puddle - with nothing to be caught.

He stands apart - as one who offers us joy in His presence, strength in His Word, hope in His promises, peace in His providence, meaning in His will, glory in His indwelling, and a love that increases as we walk in obedience.

Because He came down at Bethlehem, we have been given the opportunity for identity and more important - destiny. Jesus changed everything that day, when He came to earth to begin His journey of opening a way for us to be restored to a right relationship with the Father, not establish 'another religion'.

Until Jesus came, all of mankind were like inmates trapped in a prison - locked in to an environment of dead religious routine - serving a sentence of death; confined, and awaiting parole or death.

Jesus came to open the door and offer an escape for the imprisoned soul, and all who believe in that one special day in Bethlehem may walk through the opened prison door, set free from religion and sin, in to a new world where we are free to walk with Him and experience Him; and not just believe in Him; not as some historical figure, but as the living God who resides in us by His Spirit.

With Christmas here once more, He still comes to hearts - asking for more than just a room at the inn.

The glory of Christmas 2010 is that He lives and still gives and He is asking for your 'all'.....

When you give Him your heart, He will give you new life....

When you give Him your burdens, He will give you His peace....

When you give Him your 'all' - He will give you forever....

....and so much more

because of that first Christmas morning

- when we commit our lives to Jesus, we each have a story....

they did then...

and we can today.....

Snowman Waving From the Top of The World My vote is to have Christmas traditions all year round. You see at Christmas time most people at least the ones I have met, always change just a little for the better around Christmas. I do not know whether or not it is the great yuletide Christmas carols, the festive atmosphere everywhere you go, or just some hidden part in all of us that screams out,
(I BELIEVE IN MORE THAN WHAT I SEE AROUND ME.)
You see, somewhere deep down inside we all believe in something better than we now have or see, and most of us feel a lot better when we help someone. Whether the person is in need or not, this feeling is what I call the feeling of Christmas, and we all should strive to feel this way all year long.

The feeling of the Christmas holidays is truly all about family, friends and celebrating all things good.

The Lord's birthday is swiftly coming
Christmas carols we're merrily humming,
Adoration and harmony spreads worldwide
As we eagerly await the happy Yuletide.

Enhance your Christmas, with Christmas poems and stories highlighted with your favorite Christmas carols. Christmas traditions are fast becoming a family way of life.
Poems are a simple way of inspiring others to join in on the Christmas traditions that love and poems bring to this Christmas holiday.

We'll be thinking of you and yours on Christmas day
So I guess there's just one more thing to say,
May God bless you, your lifetime through,
Merry Christmas and a real Happy New Year.
