The Word from Isaiah 61:1 says"The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the oppressed; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners."

 

The biggest gift that Christmas brings to us is a new agenda of the heart. Those who embrace the Savior's birth grab hold to a new way of walkin' and a new way of talkin'. We take on a spirit of care and concern for those who inhabit the world that God has created. This new agenda of the heart becomes the core of our identities as we embrace the spirit of the Christ Child who was the Savior of the world, taking on the grief and sorrow of the world and nailing it all to the cross.

 

The spirit of Christmas is an eternal spirit of giving, sharing words of support and care, reaching out to those who need help. I thank God for a Savior who brought this spirit into the world. We who love God are to be the carriers of this Spirit, day in and day out. What a gift!!

See you in church!
