Though we sing the old Christmas Carols that speak of that first Christmas so long ago,
and though we wish one another a 'Merry Christmas',
it seems that most people celebrating Christmas have forgotten
that Jesus is the reason for the season.
The world has forgotten that His reason for coming was LOVE.
He came to dwell among us so we could see God's love toward mankind.
Did you ever stop to think that His love for you is such that your name is safe in His mouth ?
Isa 43:1 But now, thus says the LORD, who created you,... And He who formed you...."Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.
is His name safe in your mouth?
Is his name at times a swear word in your mouth,
or do you speak reverently when His name is on your tongue?
Do you speak His name in love,
or do you speak carelessly about Him, not careful to give Him the honor due His name?
John, at the end of his gospel tells us that the reason
why the wonderful things about Jesus were written down.
John 20:31 "but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name."
It is in the beautiful name of Jesus that we have been given 'eternal life' ,
the "right to be called the children of God"
Let us remember, not just this Christmas season, but every day
how majestic is the name of Jesus.
May His name always be 'safe' in our mouths.
