The Christ

On Sunday many people across the world will observe various Christmas traditions. Some will truly attempt to commemorate the birth of the Christ. Those who think of Jesus may picture the nativity and imagine the joy of the shepherds at hearing the angels proclaim His birth. I think we do well to realize every aspect of His life. We should learn the importance of all that the scripture relates concerning His life here on earth. The account of His great suffering and death should never be overlooked or treated casually but still there is so much more to know concerning our Lord. He is not in the tomb, nor is He at rest. The Father has raised Him up from the dead and He is alive today.

So while, in our mind, we relive these accounts of His life here on earth left us always be mindful not only of what He did then, but also of who He really is.

10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Revelation 1 (KJV)

Good post.

I think people, whether believers or unbelievers focus too much on Christ on earth and forget about Christ's present celestial glory.

Every Blessing in Christ

Matthew

Antonio thank you so much and my prayer is likewise for you and yours. ;-)

Matthew I pray God will bless me to be able to model my life after the one Jesus lived but my Lord Jesus is mighty and strong and powerful!

How amazing! That helpless babe is now still alive, and will be returning to earth again. Praise Him forever more.

Audrey you continue to be such a blessing to Corry and I. You inspire me to want to be a person that people always look forward to seeing or hearing. ;-)

Matthew I thought so too, so I couldn't help but borrow it from a friend. ;-)
