Merry Christmas



Luke 2:1 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2 (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3 And everyone went to his own town to register.

4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

14 "Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."




This Christmas as with most other Christmases finds the earth less than a peaceful place. Christians understand that the world will not be a place of peace…not yet

Jesus told us as much in John 16: 33

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."


“In this world you will have trouble.” Jesus didn’t say that to threaten us with trouble, He was stating a reality. Jesus was telling Christians how it was going to be, “you will have trouble”.

As we look at the world this Christmas, there is trouble.


Don’t expect peace in the world, even though Jesus says in Matthew 5:9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.”

Blessed are those that are called to be peacemakers…yet their success will be limited…One day Jesus Christ will return to rule and reign..then there will be peace on earth..

But you can have peace right now, this Christmas.


You can have peace in your heart, a peace the world can’t give and the world can’t take away… The only way that peace can be born in your heart is through restoration of the relationship between you and the Heavenly Father. Jesus Christ came to earth to make that restoration possible. You see, He came to bring an offer of peace to you, He came as the ultimate Peacemaker.

It’s as simple as asking Jesus to forgive you of your sins, everyone needs that forgiveness..every man, woman and child. Jesus was the only sinless one to live on this earth. Then ask Jesus to come into your heart and life..

May you find the Prince of Peace and peace in your heart this Christmas season. If you do, email me and tell me all about it..


We wish you a very Merry Christmas and God bless you..


God Bless You and God Bless America
