TOPIC- THE POWER OF CHRISTMAS TUESDAY, DECEMBER 25, 2018
SCRIPTURE: For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Jesus is the Maker, the Changer and Re-writer of history.
The most powerful and mysterious event in the history of mankind was the birth of Jesus Christ. The Christmas season is a time set aside by Christians to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is, therefore, important to know that there is a power surrounding the birth of Christ.
Now, what is the power of Christmas?
1. The Power of Unnatural Conception
The conception of Jesus took place without the biological process of conception. It was the demonstration of the supremacy of Divinity.
This implies that every time you are at a junction of your life and a natural law is trying to clash with a spiritual law, the natural must give way for the spiritual. The physical must give way for the Divine.
2. The Power that Changed History
The birth of Christ became the demarcation point of history. Every event before the birth of Christ is termed, “BC”, that is, before Christ. And every subsequent event, that is, event after the birth of Christ is termed: “AD”, that is, Anno Domini, Latin for, In the Year of our Lord. Thus Jesus Christ became the central part of history. If Jesus Christ is removed from history, the arrangement of history will scatter. Jesus is the Maker, the Changer and the Re-writer of history.
Beloved, if Jesus is the Lord of your life, He has the capacity to re-write the history of your life and give you a desired future.
REMEMBER THIS: Jesus is the Maker, the Changer and the Re-writer of history.
1. Appreciate God for the benefits of redemption and the power of Christmas.
2. Ask God on this day to change and re-write the history of your life if you do not like the direction your life is headed.
PRAYER: O Lord, I thank You for the benefits of redemption. I ask that You change every negative history in my life and grant me my desired future, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
