In March 2019 my Amazing, Beautiful Mother passed away peacefully at her home and went to be with the Lord. This marks the 5th Christmas and she will not be here physically. I say physically because she will always be in our hearts and memories. The awesome news is that we will see her again one day when we also go to be with the Lord.
The are many of you out there who have lost loved ones this year and in past years who are facing the same situation where there is an empty seat during the Christmas season. Is it easy…of course not, but today I want to give you some hope. That hope is not going to come from fancy words or a feel-good speech today. It can only come from the Good News about Jesus Christ and the New Life that only He can give you when you surrender your life by asking Him to be your Savior and Lord and repenting of your sins. Today I want to share with you the Good News, a Gift that keeps on giving, the gift of Spiritual Life and not Spiritual Death, the Gift of Eternal Life, that Gift is the Gift from God…His Son Jesus Christ.
John 3:16-17 New Living Translation (NLT)
16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.
God loves You and I so much that he GAVE the ULTIMATE GIFT…..HIS SON JESUS; such a fitting point especially during this Christmas time when the real reason for the Season is to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
Do you have Jesus Christ in your life? If you do ….Share Him with others, give the lost the ultimate gift, and remember that you will see your loved ones again. Be encouraged today and remember the good times that you shared with your loved ones who have passed on, talk about them, laugh and cry together, and draw on the Holy Spirit’s comfort to help you get through the tough days and I will plan on doing the same.
