|SALVATION IN THE
Since the beginning of Celebrando Navidad (is
this #4 or 5, I can't remember?), we have
purchased the grocery supplies to be used in
Rio Bravo, Mexico. ... in Rio Bravo, Mexico.
Nathan had found a HUGE supermarket with a
friendly manager, who we look forward to seeing
every year. Yesterday Nathan and Arturo made
the visit again but this time the manager started
telling him that he had seen the movie... God's
Not Dead and was overwhelmed by it. Mr.
Manager then asked N and A about 'what is it
you do?,' they looked at each other and knew...
this was it! They both shared about Jesus and
the WAY to heaven and that he could have that
assurance today. He prayed to receive Christ! 5
years they had been laying out a path and not
realizing it, all for this day! He even wants to drop
by Celebrando to see the events.
|Jesus’ Christmas List
by Rick Warren
“They bowed down and worshiped him. They opened their gifts and gave him
treasures of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” (Matthew 2:11 NCV)
For more than 50 years my family has kept a tradition of holding a birthday party
for Jesus. It started when I was 3 years old and asked my mom, “What is
Christmas?” My mom told me it was Jesus’ birthday. With terrific 3-year-old logic,
I said, “We should have a birthday party!” And we did, complete with a birthday
cake, Kool-Aid, songs, cake, and candles.
We’ve kept that tradition going for four generations now. The birthday party for
Jesus has become a sacred time where we read the Christmas story and share
what we’re grateful for and what we’re giving Jesus, which is one of the most
memorable parts of the celebration.
Often, Jesus gets shut out during Christmas. Imagine I planned a party for you
and invited many people. Everyone brings lots of gifts, and the invitees trade
presents with one another — and you get nothing.
That’s Christmas. We give gifts to everyone but Jesus. But let’s be honest — what
do you give the God who has everything?
Actually, Jesus doesn’t have everything. There are four things he doesn’t have
unless you give them to him this Christmas:
Give him your trust. Faith is a voluntary matter. Jesus doesn’t have your trust
unless you give it to him. He will never force it.
Make Jesus first place in your life. If anything or anyone other than Jesus holds
first place in your life, it’s an idol. This Christmas, choose to make Jesus first in
your finances, interests, relationships, schedule — and even in your troubles.
Give Jesus your heart. Your heart is what you love, what you value, and what you
care about most. Jesus says, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be
also” (Luke 12:34 NIV). One important way you give Jesus your heart this
Christmas is by giving your resources to his work. Jesus doesn’t need your money,
but he wants what it represents — your heart.
Bring other people to Jesus. God wants a family more than anything else this
Christmas. He wants children who choose to love and trust him. It is the reason
we celebrate Christmas. Invite someone to Jesus this Christmas. Tell someone
about what Jesus has done in your life.
The Bible tells us that the Wise Men didn’t give Jesus their leftovers when they
visited him on the first Christmas but instead gave three very significant and
valuable gifts: “They bowed down and worshiped him. They opened their gifts and
gave him treasures of gold, frankincense, and myrrh” (Matthew 2:11 NCV).
As you give Jesus your trust, make him first in your life, give what you value to
his work, and bring other people to him, you’re giving him gifts far more valuable
than the ones the Wise Men brought.
So tell Jesus “happy birthday” this Christmas. Give him your best.
If you've got em - bring your
EVANGICUBES OR CARDS! You
never know when you'll have a
chance to SHARE JESUS!
