Christmas Is All About Jesus!

“I will bless the LORD who has given me counsel; My heart also instructs me in the night seasons. I have set the LORD always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope. For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption. You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore” (Psalm 16:7-11).

Indeed, I will intentionally bless, adore, honour, and worship the Lord who has given me counsel. He has given me advice, witty ideas, guidance, information, instruction, and enlightenment when I needed them. He has given me wisdom to rule and reign in life. Because of my love for God and my communion with Him, my heart also instructs me in the night seasons to walk in the way of divine wisdom.

Friends, Christmas is a memorable celebration of the outstanding birth of JESUS CHRIST—God’s precious gift of Wisdom to us, for the Bible declares that Jesus Christ is our Wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:30), and in Him “are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:3). Christmas is a celebration of JESUS CHTIST, our JOY and LIFE GIVER:

“For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this” (Isaiah 9:6-7).

Let’s celebrate Christmas, not caught up in the controversy as to whether He was born on December 25th or not, but primarily on the reason why Jesus Christ, our Lord, came into this world in the first place i.e. to reveal the Father and the Father’s ultimate love and plan for our lives. Let us go all out to celebrate the memory of our Saviour’s birth with JOY and gladness of heart, knowing that in Him, we have all it takes to be all that God wants us to be in this life, have all that He wants us to have by way of inheritance, and do all that He has destined for us to do on earth.

CHRISTMAS cannot be changed to Xmas or Happy holidays. CHRISTMAS IS ALL ABOUT JESUS, our Prince of Peace, Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Joy Giver—who came to divorce mankind from Satan’s tyranny, and bring them to experience a brand new life of joy and peace.

CHRISTMAS BEGINS AND ENDS WITH JESUS. So let’s thank God for Jesus, the REASON FOR THE CELEBRATION, and let’s celebrate with JOY, remembering to bless those who are less fortunate than we are, bringing the JOY AND PEACE OF THE SAVIOUR to them as well.

I wish you and your family a very blessed Christmas celebration and Happy New Year to come.

Apostle Ifeoma Fiiriter.
