My Hope for Christmas

23 12 2011

When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.  Ephesians 3:14-21

I am so glad we have the gift of the Savior, Jesus Christ in our lives. As believers we have an opportunity to have a growing relationship with Him. As we celebrate Christmas and the coming of the New Year, my hope and prayer is that we will continue to grow stronger in the Lord. Our Father is all powerful and all knowing. We can fully trust Him with our lives and our situations. We can do our part, to do our best to follow His word and the leading of His spirit. As this passage conveys, God’s love for us is immeasurable and too great for us to even comprehend. He loved us enough to send the gift of His son Jesus. Let us continue to seek to serve Him even the more in the days to come fully trusting Him and knowing that He is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we can ask or think.

Hope and Happiness at Christmas!
