As we get ready to celebrate the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ, let us reflect on why we are here. Why are we here? We are here to Love, Honor, Adore, and Serve Our Lord. How do we know this? Because His Word tells us this in Sacred Scripture. When we read God’s Word and work on Our Relationship with Him, we start to understand, with our limited human comprehension, His Love for us. But, because we are created in His image, and He gives us the graces to overcome all sin, temptation and vices, we can actually begin to feel an indescribable LOVE for Him. I say indescribable, because with our limited comprehension, we can’t even put into words how we feel for Our Lord when He Transforms our Hearts. And this Transformation never stops as long as we continue to put time into Our Relationship with Him.
God Our Father’s Love is shown to us throughout the life of Jesus, but began with His birth. We are constantly contemplating the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Our Lord, in which we should, but it is also good to reflect on His birth because of the promise of God Our Father to His Children. Our Love for Him grows when we are given the Wisdom and Understanding from the Holy Spirit of how much God Loves us and how He sacrificed His beautiful Son for Our Salvation. Our Salvation started with the birth of Jesus and it was the long awaited HOPE, and Promise to the Israelites that He was sending a Savior! The second coming of Our Lord Jesus is just as glorious and anticipating as His first coming! Although, we study the Prophets and Prophecies of the end times in this blog, we shouldn’t focus on trials and tribulations that are coming, but on the HOPE in our own salvation, and that we will assist JESUS in the salvation of other souls. Micah 7:7 “But as for me, I will look to the Lord, I will wait for God my savior, my God will hear me.” Here is a message from Our Blessed Mother Mary to Luz de Maria in Preparation for December 25, 2018. http://www.jesusmariasite.org/adored-child-jesus-who-keeps-silence-in-the-manger/.
The birth of Jesus was foretold in the Old Testament through the Prophets in our Bible and is also in the Hebrew Bible, but many Jews did not recognize Jesus as this fulfillment of Scripture both then and now. https://www.jesusfilm.org/blog-and-stories/old-testament-prophecies.html. Because we as Christians know this to be the Truth, we should contemplate His Birth on December 25, 2019 and be thankful that He has called us to be His Disciples. Also, we must pray for His graces to continue to flow from His Sacred Heart into ours for our perpetual Transformation. This Christmas, we must thank God Our Father for the greatest gift we will ever receive, and offer ourselves through Surrender to Him, as our gift back to Him. Please take the time to show your children what is the most important gift this Christmas. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=best+short+youtube+videos+on+birth+of+jesus&view=detail&mid=E90B4640F44AC694EFEFE90B4640F44AC694EFEF&FORM=VIRE.
