A Nugget From My Spiritual Journey...December 2016


Isaiah 9

For a child will be born for us, a son will be given to us, and the government will be on His shoulders. He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

The dominion will be vast, and its prosperity will never end. He will reign on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish and sustain it with justice and righteousness from now on and forever. The zeal of the Lord of Hosts will accomplish this.

 

  I have been trying to think more intimately about God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit lately. Sometimes I think we teachers and preachers get so caught up in teaching doctrine or the principles of Scripture that we forget to carefully teach the personhood of the Triune God of Scripture!

  If we do not teach the awesome holiness of YAHWEH, the one, true, holy God, we will not commit to living holy lives in response to His mandate: “Be ye holy because I am holy.” We will not experience the everlasting comfort, peace, and welcoming arms of His strength if we do not come to know Him as our Heavenly Father.

  If we do not teach the personhood of the true Gift of Christmas, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who left Heaven for Earth, humbling Himself as a servant, obedient unto death—only because of us, to literally save us—we will not live humble, sacrificial lives as grateful recipients of such a salvation and as selfless servants for our lifetime. We must try to better grasp Him as the God-Man, Christ Jesus, in order to serve Him and serve like Him. 

  If we do not open ourselves up to learning about the fruit and gifts of the Holy Spirit, we will not know how to live honoring God and treating our fellow man with the agape’ (selfless) love that is only available for our use through Him nor know our gifted purpose on Earth. We will not understand that His power is ours, as He permanently indwells us from the point of our belief in Christ onward.

Merry Christmas … As you celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God!May you truly have the gifts of the “peace of God” and the “God of peace!”
