December is upon us and I’m bursting at the seams because Christmas is a time to center our lives on the birth and mission of Jesus! When God put on flesh, He did so with great purpose. The little baby came with a big plan! In a sense, Jesus was the only baby who came with “instructions”!!!
Gabriel, the angel assigned to share the groundbreaking news of Jesus’ birth to Mary, spoke into the instructions:
“You will be with child and give birth to a Son, and you are to give Him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David, and He will reign over the house of the Jacob forever; His kingdom will never end!” (Luke 1:31-33)
Baby Jesus came with an agenda—to rule and reign over a kingdom that will never end!
For the next three Sundays we will unwrap Jesus’ instructions; His agenda! We will crack open the Bible to look at how Jesus came to Save, Build and Transform us! We will reveal how God is leading our church, in specific ways, to Save, Build and Transform the people in our community.
Come prepared to join the cause of which God has called us! And may we respond to Jesus, the way Mary responded to Jesus! May we not only receive His birth, but also receive His Kingdom plan!
On The Victory Side…Dave
