15 Dec A Season Of Joy
A Season Of Joy
We love the Christmas season in our home especially Jayne as we have come to call her ‘Mother Christmas’ due to the joy and excitement she has during this time of the year. The excitement of Christmas is one that every believer must exhibit because you have received the greatest gift of all in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour giving you access to an amazing life. As believers and recipients of God’s generous gift to we ought to live our lives from a place of victory daily and not only during the Christmas season.
The Christmas season is also a season of joy because the announcement of His birth broke with joy to everyone who received the message of the birth of the Saviour. The Bible says of the shepherds who received the message from the angel, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will come to all the people. For to you is born this day in the town of David a Savior, Who is Christ (the Messiah) the Lord!”
Similarly the Wise men from the East “When they saw the star, they were thrilled with ecstatic joy.”
They went and worshipped the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
As you take time with your family and loved ones this Christmas season remember it is a season of joy for you, His joy dwells in you by the presence of the Holy Spirit. This joy fuels your strength and enables you to live victoriously all year round.
No matter what is happening in our world and all the unrest around us you and I are encouraged to carry and demonstrate the joy of knowing Jesus Christ as Lord wherever we go and whenever the opportunity arises to allow His joy to be released in us and in all the circumstances around us.
From our home to yours it is our prayer that you have a joy filled Christmas and in the coming year you continue to experience more joy and favour in all you do.
Thank you for being a part of the life changing vision of Praise Christian Centre and we look forward to your continued support as we bring His kingdom into our city, community and nation.
Remember Jesus loves you and there is nothing you can do it.
With Every Blessing
Pastors Kofi & Jayne
