Merry Christmas!

ChristmasMerry Christmas!

Today, we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Although, his birth probably took place in October rather than December, we take this opportunity to honour and worship Him.

Obviously, the Christmas story has accumulated a lot of extra trimmings over the years, with the addition of things like Santa Claus, Christmas trees, cards and holidays. These had no place in the original story. However, we should be thankful for the opportunity to take some time off, to gather as families, to focus on Jesus Christ and what he means to us, as well as to reach out to people who don't yet know Him.

I hope you enjoy this special day as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world!

Hi Mark,
Merry Christmas to you and your family.
Jesus birth probably took place late September. :)
You're a wonderful blessing & a great inspiration to many. Thank you for your wise and encouraging ministry. May you and your family have a blessed and holy Christmas celebrating God's greatest love gift to us, Jesus Christ, His Son. May your hearts and home be filled with God's incredible love, with abundant joy and sweet Shalom peace in the Holy Spirit anointing. May the Lord continue to bless you abundantly and all that you do for the love of our Lord and keep you standing strong in His love always. Take care. Praying God's best for you in 2008.

The Aaronic Priestly Blessing:
Numbers 6:22 The LORD said to Moses, 23 "Tell Aaron and his sons,"
This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them:
24 "The LORD bless you and keep you;

25 the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you;

26 the LORD turn his face toward you
and give you peace."

2 Corinthians 13
13 All the saints salute you.
14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.
