Christmas Fortnight Day 14


We’ve all heard about the “fake” interpreter that was found out at the recent Mandela funeral.  He appeared to be interpreting for the deaf but in reality he wasn’t. Yet when the real deaf people and genuine interpreters saw what was being done the ‘truth’ about the ‘fake’ was brought to light.  How often do we do things that are “fake” hoping no one will find out?

Jesus came to earth—God in human flesh. Emmanuel!!  He was, is and ever shall be the “real deal”, so to speak.  There are many voices claiming authenticity today but Jesus is still the ‘real’ Savior.

The ‘real’ Messiah.

The “real” one sent to save us

the ONLY ONE sent to save us.

The only one who can save us.

John 14:6 declares this very fact in the words of Jesus himself, “I am the way, the truth and the life, no man comes to the Father but by ME”.

This babe born and laid in that manger was the

Son of God

The Word

The Light of Life

The Bread of Life

The Good Shepherd






Lord of Lords.

 King of Kings.

I could go on without end, but the question I’d like us to consider is this, “What are you doing with Jesus?”

Have you left him in the manger?

Have you left him on the Mount with the Beatitudes?

Have you left Him walking on the water?

OR have you opened the door of your heart

and bowed before the King

in repentance and faith and

invited HIM in.

Rev. 3:20, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” 

Is Jesus standing outside of your heart?

Is He knocking at your hearts door?

Won’t you let Him in?

The choice is yours.

Leave Him in that manger of straw,

or invite Him in,

to save and transform your life.

2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

Won’t you receive the greatest Christmas gift ever given—the gift of eternal life???

Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death, but the GIFT of God is ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.”  



May your Christmas be full of joy to your heart,

delight to others and

 “glory to God in the highest”—Christ is KING!!!
