24 Days Til Christmas

Luke 22:66-71

At daybreak the council of the elders of the people, both the chief of priests and teachers of the law, met together, and Jesus was led before them. “If you are the Christ,” they said, “tell us.”

Jesus answered, “If I tell you, you will not believe me, and if I asked you, you would not answer. But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God.”Luke 22:66-71

At daybreak the council of the elders of the people, both the chief of priests and teachers of the law, met together, and Jesus was led before them. “If you are the Christ,” they said, “tell us.”

They all asked, “Are you then the Son of God?” He replied, “You are right in saying I am.”

Then they said, “Why do we need any more testimony? We have heard it from His own lips.” (NIV Life Application Bible)

We are a skeptical society. We have all experienced some kind of damaging experience in our lives. So… sometimes even when the truth is right in front of our nose we question its validity. It is our way of protecting ourselves from any more damage, disappointment and loss. We can be our own worst enemy if we are not careful of how we interpret truth verses non-truth, pending the source.

This Christmas season, I ask you, take a risk. The emptiness we experience over the holiday season may be because of our inability to let go and let God in. We search for every other way to fill the emptiness. Take the risk… Let Jesus in… let Him fill your heart with overwhelming joy… and let it overflow into every part of your life. This is a priceless gift and can never be taken away. A gift that will fill your life with growth, healing and so much more.

My gift to you this season is our Lord & Savior…  Jesus Christ!
