The birth of Christ is so much more than that and so much more than a holiday. It's God's love in the form of a man. His forgiveness, redemption, grace, mercy, power and love brought to us. What a gift!

I heard on the radio yesterday something pretty funny and poignant. Maybe you've heard this; a pastor was telling the story of a little girl whose parents were too busy to play with her at Christmas time. As she prayed that night she prayed, "God, forgive us our Christmases as we forgive those who Christmas against us".

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things.

Philippians 4:8

I'm feeling a little under the spiritual weather these days. 2011 wasn't a terribly good year and it's ending is even worse, been having a real tough time with a certain person in/out of my life. I guess it's all a blessing and works out to the good of God's will, though sometimes it hurts something fierce. We can never wrap our feeble minds around even a smidgin of God's wisdom and yet we try...in vain. I guess it all (and when I say "it", I mean life itself and everything in it) boils down to trusting His wisdom, His grace, His trustworthiness and His love...and taking another step.

sometimes I get so tired....but on I go. Thanks for your prayers this past year, I keep you all in mine.

Amen Brother, different circumstances but the same feeling. Trust in Him....and take another step. Yep, just that simple. Just not so easy all the time.

And you will remain in my prayers.

Love ya!

Amen, brothers and sisters.

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because Godís love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:1-8

I've always loved that passage from Scripture. It has lifted me up more than once.

as this year closes out, and as a testimony to Doug especially, as well as all contributors to this thread:

"...give attention to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation and teaching..."

What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we beheld and our hands handled, concerning the Word of Life -- and the life was manifested, and we have seen and bear witness and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us --what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, that you also may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son, Jesus Christ.

1John 1: 1-3

And these things we write, so that our joy made be made complete. And this is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.

1John 1: 4-7

If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

1John 1:8-10

Amen. Thank you Father in Heaven.

My little children, I am writing these things to you that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.

and He Himself is the propriation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world. And by this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. The one who says, "I have come to know Him", and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever keeps His word in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked.

1John 2: 2-6

Thank you Father. Keep us on the path.

Beloved, I am not writing a new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning; the old commandment is the word which you have heard. On the other hand, I am writing a new commandment to you, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining.

1John 2: 7-8

I just wanted to say thanks to all my brothers and sisters here who offered up their prayers and support for me over the suicide of my friend. It really does matter, and it really means a lot.

the prayers of a righteous man are powerful and effective...

The one who says he is in the light and yet hates his brother is in the darkness until now. The one who loves his brother abides in the light and there is no cause for stumbling in him. But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes. I am writing to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for His name's sake.

I am writing to you fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I have written to you, children, because you know the Father. I have written to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one. Do not love the world, nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God abides forever.

Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard anti-christ is coming, even now, many anti-christs have arisen; from this we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us, but they went out, in order that it might be shown that they all are not of us.
But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all know. I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and because no lie is of the truth.

Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the anti-christ, the one who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also. As for you, let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is the promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life.

These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. And as for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. And now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away from Him in shame at His coming. If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone also who practices righteousness is born of Him.

1John 2: 26-29

---you're welcome. It's actually my pleasure.

See how great a love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.

Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we shall be. We know that, when He appears, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. And you know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. Little children, let no one deceive you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

1John 3:2-8

Brothers and Sisters, the key word in this passage is "practice". We all sin and fall short of the glory of God but praise His name, He sent His Son as the atonement for sin. There is an eternal difference between committing a sin and practicing sin. Fret not, by His grace we are saved! Thank you, precious Jesus.
