The True Meaning Of Christmas

Dear Grace World family,

I wanted to take a moment to wish all of you a Merry Christmas!

We have people from all over the world who have subscribed to these blog posts and emails, and so for many of you Christmas may already be over. But nevertheless, I pray that you had a wonderful and blessed time with family and loved ones! And I wanted to share a little video I felt led to make today. These are just some reflections on the true meaning of Christmas. As we know, it is all about Him! Jesus is truly the reason for the season!

And so as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, and as we get ready to head into a new year, let’s reflect simply on the goodness of our God. Realize that by sending Jesus into the world, He has made His Grace—unearned, unmerited and undeserved favor—available to all who will receive Him. The Bible speaks of good tidings of great joy, which have been made available to all people! (Luke 2:10) And it is His Grace that empowers us and enables us to live successful, victorious and prosperous lives!

And so I pray this little video will be a blessing to you! Be on the lookout for more online content including videos and audios as we head into 2019. As our ministry continues to grow here locally, the Lord has put it on my heart to grow and expand our online ministry as well. Our aim is to reach as many people as possible with this Gospel of Grace!

Thank you all who are a part of our online community! You are a part of our ministry family, and we love you!

Many blessings!

The Greatest Gift (John 3:16)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16 (KJV)

God has already given us the greatest gift we could ever receive in bringing forth His Son into the world. By simply placing our faith in Jesus, we are delivered from everything that leads to destruction, and we receive the free gift of everlasting life. This life that Jesus came to give includes wholeness, peace, joy, soundness, safety, and every need met in spirit, soul and body.

God Is Your Source (2 Corinthians 9:8)

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.

2 Corinthians 9:8 (NKJV)

God’s will for us is to be abundantly supplied so we may fulfill every good work He has called us to do. When we understand this and trust Him in the area of our finances, we open ourselves up to seeing His abounding grace manifesting in the most unexpected ways. Let us remember that God truly is our source!

All Sufficiency (2 Corinthians 9:8)

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.

2 Corinthians 9:8 (NKJV)

It is the will of God for us to have all sufficiency in all things. This includes but is not limited to finances. When we know that our heavenly Father wants us to prosper in every area of our life, we are free to give and share knowing that it shall always be given back to us. The more we see ourselves as vessels through which God can bless others, the more of the blessing we tend to see in our own lives.

Pray With Confidence (1 John 5:14)

This is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he heareth us.

1 John 5:14 (KJV)

The will of God is revealed through the Word of God. And so let us approach our heavenly Father with the confidence that as we pray according to His will, it is His good pleasure to give us the kingdom. God is withholding no good thing from us, and He is looking for each of us to be instruments and vessels through which His glory may manifest on earth as it is in heaven. 

Jesus Gives Us Rest (Matthew 11:28)

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11:28 (KJV)

Jesus gives us rest because He is our sufficiency, and through His finished works we have full and complete access to the boundless riches and beauties of the kingdom of God. And so whatever your need may be today, be sure to take it to the Lord, fellowship with Him, and thank Him that in Him your need is met. Faith gives us access to all that the grace of God has already made available.

Faith Accesses What Grace Has Provided (Romans 5:2)

By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

Romans 5:2 (KJV)

Grace is the revelation that God has made available anything we will ever need through the finished works of Jesus. Faith is how we access what grace has provided. And so let us embrace by faith that our needs are met, and that the solution to every challenge has been provided. When we believe this and live out from it, we will see the evidence of it manifest in our life.

The Word Works In Us (1 Thessalonians 2:13)

For this reason we also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe.

1 Thessalonians 2:13 (NKJV)

As we daily receive the Word of God with a receptive heart of faith, the Word works in us effectively. The more we have the Word rooted in our hearts, the more will it produce in us and in our lives the very things it had declared about us regarding our healing, deliverance, soundness, freedom, prosperity, and all of the things that pertain to our lives of victory in Christ.

The Greatest Gift (John 3:16)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16 (KJV)

God has already given us the greatest gift we could ever receive in bringing forth His Son into the world. By simply placing our faith in Jesus, we are delivered from everything that leads to destruction, and we receive the free gift of everlasting life. This life that Jesus came to give includes wholeness, peace, joy, soundness, safety, and every need met in spirit, soul and body.
