Jesus a humble King

Our King came to save the world as innocent! As a tiny baby, the Son of God entered the world with humble beginnings and a magnificent example. His power placed in His teachings of love and instruction available to us as our daily bread. Many flocked to hear Him on the mountainsides. After thirty-three short years of sharing His everything, He suffered as He took to the CROSS-!

Jesus didn’t come in a golden carriage with lavish pomp and circumstances, although He was a King, He was the King of Kings. Instead, He enters the world in a dirty stable the simplest of births in the quiet of the night. After Jesus arrived, the night sky lit up with the incredible light. A bright and luminous night star hovered above the stable where He laid swaddled in a manger; the night star was a beacon seen from miles away and urging those who saw it to HIM.

Mary the Virgin Mother and Joseph, as His parents, went as told to the city to receive our King. They answer without fear and with complete trust in God’s plan. Their unwavering faith kept them moving forward in adversity. They trusted with complete surrender humble servants and their Baby the most modest of Kings.

At this thought, I wonder. If my Father asks, will we be obedient? To place this story in our current timeline makes one wonder. Is it more challenging to respond with such selflessness in this present day, or are we becoming narcissistic? We hope for obedience to His plan, and yet we often witness the repeats of denying Him as did Peter.

How sad that we live in a time where Jesus is scorn, yet again, as they throw Him out of our schools, ceremonies, even our prayer time has taken a hit. How many times do we stand idle as they shun our King!

Distractions take precedent. Peer pressure creates a cloud of confusion, forgetting what true faith and following Christ means. To follow Him is a selfless act, to accept and honor Him as one must die to self to glorify Him. When we get off track, we can get back on board before the train leaves us in the dust of sin. Don’t be a fan of this world follow a real hero as you continue to trust His perfect plan for your life.

Life will throw darts, and many will land right in your heart, but the alternative to living in Christ is dead in sin. The choice simple after you trust something a thief sneaks in trying to break and destroy, but Christ came so we could live. A most precious reminder He shares with us is at peace in the struggle, for the battle is real, but to take heart in the knowing, He has overcome the world!

Jesus Be the Center

Be not afraid

The story of Jesus and His beautiful birth always brings a smile; the best rendition I have heard was from a sweet two-year-old baby girl. It left an impact because she began each line with passion and determination to share the importance of story. She stands tall and states; The Angel told us don't be afraid! There was a baby born in a manger, and He is Jesus.

God uses the tiniest Babe. He blesses with the innocence of a child; the luminance of the infant is very similar to that bright star of the Bethlehem sky symbolizing JESUS LIVES. A child of any age experiencing the newness of a stage of life is a blessing to see. They approach each experience with such vigor and determination abounding in excitement. To feel their curiosity or hunger is enticing.

If we stop and think we all children of God capable of shining that forever light for Him, and we all have a hunger for what is right and proper. We all can starve ourselves, yet hunger can be a beautiful thing, for in the sadness of starvation is the desire and want of something better. If we fill that hunger with Jesus year-round, we will fill with the Holy Spirit. I beg you to feed the hungry and LIVE FOR JESUS as BRIGHT STARS shining for HIM. This world has nothing for you and still has everything if living and sharing His message is your focus.

"I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all.

People. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior,

Which is Christ the Lord? And this shall be a sign unto you; ye shall

Find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And

Suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host.

Praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth

Peace, goodwill toward men." Luke 2:8-14

If you are not hungry, there is still time, get hungry, ask Jesus into your heart. By the Cross-, He set you free. Believe in Him and have everlasting life. Ask His forgiveness and then live as one of His shining stars. Shine for all to see directing others straight to Him!
