Joshua 3:1-6

3 Early in the morning Joshua and all the Israelites set out from Shittim and went to the Jordan, where they camped before crossing over. 2 After three days the officers went throughout the camp, 3 giving orders to the people: "When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, and the priests, who are Levites, carrying it, you are to move out from your positions and follow it.

4 Then you will know which way to go, since you have never been this way before. But keep a distance of about a thousand yards between you and the ark; do not go near it." 5 Joshua told the people, "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you." 6 Joshua said to the priests, "Take up the ark of the covenant and pass on ahead of the people." So they took it up and went ahead of them. NIV

Word of God through Pastor Nick Esguerra

“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord.  This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

Luke 2:11-12

It was said that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year but it is surprising that it can be also a very depressing time for some. It seems so odd to think that in this time of happiness and rejoicing, there are people who are depress, lonely and hopeless. We thought that Christmas was the season of perpetual joy and happiness, but why is it that many are depress in this time of rejoicing.

Let us admit that the world we live in is full of depression. When Adam and Eve sinned against God and sin entered the world, living here on Earth would always be depressing, lonely and hopeless. Without God living among men, this world became a place filled with anxiety, worry, and helplessness. Because of this, it is not surprising to know that many are depress and down not only during Christmas but every day of their lives.

Christmas is worth celebrating for its message promises eternal joy, comfort and peace. It brings hope even in deepest times of trial and devastation. It gives good tidings that will bring great joy. Christmas will always be a time of peace for on this day not only a Savior was born to us but the Prince of Peace who can give us eternal peace and comfort.

During the night when Jesus was born, the shepherds who were living out in the fields and keeping the flocks were terrified when an angel of the Lord appeared to them as the glory of God shone around them. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people” (Luke 2:8-10). The good news of Christmas brought by the birth of Jesus Christ will always cast out fear and will cause great joy for all people even when our hearts seems dark and gloomy.

Jesus Christ came to bring eternal comfort in our hearts that in spite of what situations we are facing we can find hope. During darkest hour of our lives when we are being battered by the difficulties and hardness of life, we might have faith to call upon God who is able to help us. Our Lord came to dwell among us that He can turn our grief and sorrow into peace and comfort. He alone can turn our mourning and weeping into dancing and rejoicing.

As we prepare for Christmas with our usual feasting and traditions, let us be reminded not to forget the most important thing and that is to praise God for His great love for us. It is the love of the Father that initiated Him for His Son to be born here on earth. As Christians, we hold the key and the light that people need that they may find true joy and satisfaction in life. Let the light of Christmas within us brightens the darkness that filled the hearts of many. For the true happiness that Christmas brings come within our hearts. The joy that is not only present every Christmas season but every day of the year.

A Blessed and Merry Christmas to All!

Romans 7:14-25 Common English Bible (CEB)

14 We know that the Law is spiritual, but I’m made of flesh and blood, and I’m sold as a slave to sin. 

15 I don’t know what I’m doing, because I don’t do what I want to do. Instead, I do the thing that I hate. 

16 But if I’m doing the thing that I don’t want to do, I’m agreeing that the Law is right. 

17 But now I’m not the one doing it anymore. Instead, it’s sin that lives in me. 

18 I know that good doesn’t live in me—that is, in my body. The desire to do good is inside of me, but I can’t do it.  

19 I don’t do the good that I want to do, but I do the evil that I don’t want to do.  

20 But if I do the very thing that I don’t want to do, then I’m not the one doing it anymore. Instead, it is sin that lives in me that is doing it.

Numbers 6:22-27. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:  The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:  The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.  And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them.

To name a few effects, His blessing brings…

According to Sifre (Jewish commentary on Numbers and Deuteronomy) and most other rabbinic commentaries,

1.      the “first blessing refers to material prosperity,”

2.      the “second to the spiritual blessings of Torah knowledge and inspiration,”

3.      and the “last blessing to God’s compassion above and beyond what one deserves, as expressed in forgiveness of sin and the giving of peace.”
