This blog is supposed to be, as much as I can, my daily journey through life as a Christian. I hope it to be my thoughts and feelings on life but be as grounded in the Christian message as it can. My intention is not to create a daily readings or bible study guide but to look at my life in terms of a Christian trying to find and follow God's mission using his Life User's Manuel AKA the Bible.

Matthew 10 19-20

And don't you worry about what you'll say or how you'll say it. The right words will be there; the Spirit of your Father will supply the words. - Matthew 10 19-20

Special midnight Christmas message

I don't know about anyone else but my Christmas eve has been absolutely mental. It has been so busy but a lot of fun. Almost the whole day has been spent singing or playing carols proclaiming the forthcoming birth of our Lord and Saviour. It felt great to be out and about amongst the secular residents of my town and being so openly Christian, it is something I intend to carry on through as a new years resolution.

So why am I writing this special extra Christmas post? Well tonight has been such a wonderful night of good Christian fellowship and great Christmas cheer in the company of my extended family and the people I grew up around. Jesus came to earth to bring us together in to one family and tonight was a great example of this to me.

This year I want to take the excitement of Christmas, the fun and feeling and infuse it into my life. I want to try and take note of what Christmas means and how it makes me feel when I realise this and work it into my life as a Christian.

I know Jesus loves me and I love Him too. But this Christmas I want to make a commitment to God, I want to do something I never have before. I want to say, at last, that I don't want to hold back anymore, I don't want to keep anything back for myself. I am not going to hold the door ajar anymore, instead I plan t fling it wide open for Jesus to walk through in all His glory with full access. 

Christmas is all about celebrating the birth of Jesus and His entry in to the world He created. It is quite fitting that this year I can celebrate His entry fully in to my heart and life. I know Jesus loves me, now it is time to begin to show how much I love Him.

Merry Christmas Everyone.
