Our Greatest Gift

As one ages, birthday’s seem to occur more frequently, causing one to ask where the past year has gone. Then comes the glut of thoughts and self-reflection, introspection eager to explore all the angles, including unfulfilled dreams and hopeful wishes for the future. Birthdays offer a way to measure and weigh time; was it a productive year well spent, or were the days unproductive and heavily laden with wasted hours? After reviewing all of God’s timely trials and tribulations, it is the perfect time to receive one of his greatest gifts, the gift of wisdom, for the wisdom of hindsight is one of life’s greatest treasures.

As Jesus Christ prepares to celebrate his birthday on December 25th, 2014, will he be reflecting on an increased quality of life and time well- spent in America, or will he instead be shedding a tear for the Barack-like Babylonian behavior and waning of faith in him? Will Jesus be disappointed in the Christian “Can’t Do” attitude that he better defines as “Won’t Do?” Will Jesus continue to teach us in 2015, hoping for a spiritual revival, or will he decide to judge instead?

When looking back at 2014, it seems that many Americans have not wisely learned through history and hindsight that if we as a nation continue in the current direction, we are doomed for failure. The breakdown of the family unit, suppressive and stifling Government giveaways, racial division, political correctness, immorality and a visible snubbing of God are the devil’s lair, deceptive tools meant to break down the essential foundation of America and leave it in ruin’s.

This Christmas, more than ever, it is important to focus on Jesus Christ, his birth, our rebirth, and God’s greatest gift to humankind… faith! It is a time to think about the year ahead and be reminded that “fruitful” hope and change can only be orchestrated through God.

Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday Jesus! How Great Thou Art!

    Very well said. Love you and hope you are having a Merry Christmas. We are at mom’s and getting ready for friends this evening cooking and preparing. Tomorrow we have 18 coming and will be up early cooking again. Home bound on Friday to rest.

    God bless you, Paul, and family. Hope to see you soon.

    Things get worse, my faith in Jesus deepens. I pray for a deeper faith for all. I wonder if “Jesus wept.” is how He feels about us?

    As we celebrate the birthday of the greatest gift the world has ever know, I pray the Lord will keep us ever mindful of his salvation and redemption for every human being and give us the armor for fighting the good fight against all evil. He gave us hope, joy, peace and love. While we praise Him for all His blessings, may we keep in our hearts the true meaning of Christmas every day.

    Thanks, my dear friend Cynthia, I always enjoy your posts! Merry Christmas and the blessings of Jesus through 2015!
