A Few Thoughts on the Birth of Our Savior

With all the commercialism around us, our thoughts should be focused on the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ! I have heard and read so many thoughts that are soul-stirring to me. I hope they are to you.

Joy to the world, the Lord is come!

Beneath His watchful eye

His saints securely dwell;

That hand which bears all nature up

Shall guard His children well.

–Doddridge

The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.

From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.

He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.

There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.

An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.

Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;

To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.

Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.

For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.

Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.

Psalm 33:13-22

Sufferings of this life

“If we have Him, how much else do we really need?”
–Joni Eareckson Tada, pg. 200, “A Place of Healing”

Just think, whatever our current or future physical condition is or will be, we don’t have to live like this forever!

“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”
Romans 18:8

Following Christ

Following Christ has two requirements:
Believing, and acting like you do.

Treasure

“The man who has God for his treasure has all things in One. Many ordinary treasures may be denied him, or if he is allowed to have them, the enjoyment of them will be so tempered that they will never be necessary to his happiness. Or if he must see them go, one after one, he will scarcely feel a sense of loss, for having the Source of all things he has in One all satisfaction, all pleasure, all delight. Whatever he may lose, he has actually lost nothing, for he now has it all in One, and he has it purely, legitimately and forever.”
–Quoted in ABWE Dimensions Spring/Summer 2011
–With note from the editor:
–I cannot find the author of the above. I love this writing and would encourage you to cut it out, and place it in your Bible.

A Three Fold Chord

Is anything too hard for the Lord?
The Lord knows what you have need of before you ask.

When I am afraid, I will trust in God.
–From a friend
