God is With You!

Emmanuel. Jesus Christ. The long-awaited Messiah. God with us.

Jesus, God’s Son, God Himself in the flesh came to this earth! To be born of a virgin, to live among His people, to show the heart of the Father to all generations. To give His life and be raised back to life again!

And He came…willingly. He wasn’t forced. And He wasn’t coerced.
He chose. 

He chose to love. He chose to give. He chose to not only make a way, but to BE the WAY to reconcile His people back to Himself.
To love as His Father loves and give as His Father gives. To be the exact representation of His Father and ours!

This Christmas season, we encourage you to choose.
To choose to take time to focus…on Jesus!

To read not only the story of His birth, but the story of His life! To read, as a child, the stories of His healings, the stories of His miracles, the stories of His love, poured out on people like you and like me.
To chose to receive His love and choose to be His love!
To choose to love like Jesus, which is to love like the Father.
To choose to love the person the next to you and the person far from you. To choose to live. To choose to give. To choose to pray and to prophesy and to heal!

This Christmas season, we encourage you to choose. To choose to be love. To choose to be Jesus.

I love each of you with the same love that the Father loves Me. You must continually let My love nourish your hearts.  John 15:9 TPT
There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13 NLT

We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection. His example is this: Because His heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be His, He endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God! Hebrews 12:2 TPT

Choose you this day whom you will serve…but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. from Joshua 24:15 NLT
