A Christmas Meditation
The Prince of Peace Has Come...
the one who gives eternal life and overflowing joy.
We proclaim to you the one who existed from the beginning, whom we have heard and seen. We saw him with our own eyes and touched him with our own hands. He is the Word of life. This one who is life itself was revealed to us, and we have seen him. And now we testify and proclaim to you that he is the one who is eternal life. He was with the Father, and then he was revealed to us. We proclaim to you what we ourselves have actually seen and heard so that you may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. We are writing these things so that you may fully share our joy. I John 1:1-4 NLT
What a wonderful acclimation about our Lord Jesus, the son born as the wonderful counselor, the almighty God, everlasting Father and prince of Peace. He is the one who EXISTED FROM THE BEGINNING, from eternity, before the world existed. He is the WORD OF LIFE, the Christ, the son of the living God—who is the ETERNAL LIFE given to us and the source of forever life with Him. A life that is more than mere existence and lasts forever.
This Jesus was REVEALED to us from the Father having the same essence and nature as God in human flesh. The scripture gives eye witness testimony that He lived with them, walked with them and they saw the Glory of God the Father in Him. He was real and they saw Him and heard His message and now share that same message, that we may have fellowship and share joy together with Him. Now we can partner together and share the same benefits as the Children of God, with the Father and Jesus Christ, that our joy may be overflowing.
This Jesus, who is Eternal Life, constantly prays for us that we may know how to have this Eternal Life he promised, as He prayed to the Father in preparation of His crucifixion on the cross.
And this is the way to have eternal life—to know YOU, THE ONLY TRUE GOD, and JESUS CHRIST,
the one you sent to earth.
Let us thank God for this wonderful life He has given us, this forever life, starting here and now, as we come to know Him and Jesus Christ better and better. Let us worship Him better in service given through this life and allow Him to bring excitement and joy in sharing the good news and knowledge of our Lord and Savior- Amen.

December - International Missions
After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nations, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a lound voice " Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the lamb!" Revelation 7:9-10 ESV
Lottie Moon Christmas Offering
Lottie Moon International Missions is an annual Christmas offering collected by believers around the world to support international missions. The offering was officially named in 1918 by Woman’s Missionary Union in honor of the missionary to China who urged churches to start it and give sacrificially.
This offering is unique from other mission offerings in that 100% of gifts provide for missionaries all over the world. It is a valuable part of Southern Baptists' 175-year history of reaching the nations with the gospel and vital to reaching the vision of a multitude from every language, people, tribe and nation knowing and worshiping our Lord Jesus Christ (Revelation 7:9).
We are collecting offerings through the month of December.
