In Other Words Tuesday

“ Christmas belongs to us,
the believers of Christ,
it doesn’t belong to the world.
Christ needs to be elevated in our hearts year around.
He didn’t come to be marketed, as a seasonal gift
on sale for half price.
We were the ones, that were bought at a price. ”David Jeremiah
Amen, so very true. We should not just celebrate Jesus at Christmas, He should be celebrated everyday.  He is not something to be found at a sale on black friday. He lives within our hearts, that is where you can find Him.  He is the greatest gift ever given, priceless. Mary wrapped the very first Christmas gift, baby Jesus. Every other gift dims in comparison, nothing comes close to the value of Jesus. Jesus was not, and cannot, be bought. He freely gives His self away.  We were the ones bought, at a great cost, Jesus's life. It is past time, to try to repay Him, as if we ever could!! But, we can try. Spread the good news, of Jesus, and His love this Christmas, and always.

Thank you for sharing!

Isn't it great that we know it's only through Christ Jesus that our sins can be forgiven and that we can receive Eternal Life? Praise God!

God bless!

Good Morning Denise, Thank you for stopping by my place-you are always a blessing! I love this post, such truth! We may be the only bible folks are ever exposed to, if our eyes aren't focused on Him they might not always see Him.
Hugs today and Christmas blessings.
