Christmas and what God did

One thing: All that God is was revealed in Jesus. He is compassionate, just, kind, faithful, truthful, and much more. We can see it all in Jesus. This is why Christ followers can call Jesus God the Son. For as you see the Son you see the Father. In this Christmas season, I pray that many will come to see the real Jesus and be saved by the Father and filled with His Spirit. Looking to Jesus in this Christmas season.

The Reason part 2

At Elevation today, we celebrated the Reason we worship God in Christ Jesus in His Spirit and Truth. It was a wonderful day of public of proclamation of the Gospel of Christ coming, and the saints at Elevation seemed grateful to have gathered. I wanted to include another quote I found by C.S.Lewis about the genuine and authoritative nature of worship to God; "A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell."
C. S. Lewis
As sinners who have been saved by the Grace of God in Christ Jesus, we all have fallen short of God's glory, and yet the Son of God did not and makes way for bringing many sons and daughters to glory. Amen!
