‘The Reason’Published 12:15pm Thursday, December 20, 2012
Free will was God the Father’s design. The design allows us to stumble, fall, accelerate, succeed, rise above circumstances, love, and be loved.
I choose to have faith that God has never left me nor forsaken me; that all the good and perfect gifts are from God; any other “stuff” is of our own doing (or undoing) or attacks from the Ruler of Darkness.
God’s love for us, once it was established that on our own we would self destruct, God chose to give us an “out.”
In the beginning was the Word, The Word was with God, and the Word was God. Jesus the spoken Word (Living Word) was made flesh to give us a way out of darkness into His marvelous light.
All we have to do is to believe in our heart that Christ is the Son of God (Living Word made flesh), that Jesus was here to show how much we are loved, that He suffered, died, was buried, descended in hell, took away the power of death (satan), ascended into heaven, and continues to intercede for us.
We cannot earn or just be “good” to spend eternity with God, for the Word instructs us that without faith we cannot please God and would ultimately be seperated from God for eternity.
So let us celebrate because Jesus was made flesh as a means for us to fulfill God’s plan for us. God is so good and deserves our praise. Merry Christmas.
