Even though there’s no certainty about Jesus’s birthday Christians should celebrate His birth but in a different way than the rest of the world does it.
One of greatest security in life is to know we can count on someone. This allows us to have deep trust and be confident about our relationship with that person. This is the relationship we can have with our great God because he does not change.
We walk with our heads down and cower with fear because we do not know God. What we think about God affects how we think about everything else. If we say we are walking with God we cannot be fearful and lack confidence.
Why does God show us His power through scriptures and in everyday life? He does it so we can trust Him and have faith that amid everyday routine, life challenges and struggles we still worship an ultra powerful God who is able to help up overcome.
Our God is great. He is not liken to anyone and to think that God has ever lost control is foolish. God does not need to seek counsel or direction from anyone. Therefore even in difficult times as with Job when we see who God is, a spiritual reaction is to surrender, repent and deepen our faith in God.
What God do you think about in the mornings? As we investigate God we can answer why do we do the things that we do? When we realize how great God is we will see that He is worth our energy and time. We have more knowledge about God today than before. Do we comprehend God more with all these resources that we have? Is not about if we know God but it is about if we comprehend Him
Jesus was a rule breaker. We try to confine God on a print of paper. We have a society that love to marginalize people but God calls us to love everyone. Are we loving like Jesus? We need to love people when others will not because we are being like Jesus.
Christianity is all about following and imitating Jesus. Jesus’ call to follow him was not a one-time call to a selected group of people. He extended his call to everyone. Are you the follower? http://www.ottawacoc.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/message-2012-05-06.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 45:05 — 6.5MB)
