Beloved, I have some good news and great joy for you. Today, unto us a Child is given, Christ our Saviour is born of the Virgin Mary in Bethlehem to bring release in our lives. He is God made man, Eternal Father, the Counselor, and the Prince of Peace.
Jesus is the Word who has finally become human and lives among us. He is the Light of the World, and has scattered darkness. God’s grace has been revealed in him. He wants to be your friend today. He is a good friend.
Great friends take a genuine interest in each other. They are loyal and honest. They focus on giving, not taking. They build each other up with encouragement. Great friends are empathetic. They are good listeners, and they help us to see the humorous side of life.
It is through our relationship with Jesus that we learn how to be a good friend to others. He teaches us what it means to truly be a friend. He teaches us how to relate to others with compassion and understanding. He teaches us when to speak and when to listen.
Do you want to be a friend of this newborn King, Jesus Christ? Are you a great friend?
Merry Christmas 🎄 and a happy new year to all. Shalom!
