Hi All,

Found this one and wondered whether you the reader might be interested in reading it?

I am wondering whether I might be able to post this here?

Here goes anyway!

Http://www.christian.org.uk/news/christmas-message-by-revd-david-holloway-4/

When the glit of commercial Xmas passes the shopper by as they in some cases sink further in debt what have we to give in answer to our carpet bagging friends in place of that commercial glit???....?

Yours in His Everlovingtenderkindness,

Colin2000.

PS.  Jesmond Parish Church is a light shining in the darkness up there in the foreign land of Newcastle-upon Tyne you know!

What a wonderful Christmas writing, Colin.

Quote
Well, the message of Christmas provides true hope and encouragement for all. It teaches you not only that God is real but God loves you (the evidence is Christ’s coming in history); God is for you (the evidence is Christ’s death on the Cross); and God is with you (for Christ is “Emmanuel” – meaning “God is with us”, as we shall be singing). So how you need to trust him!


Quote
“My memory is nearly gone but I remember two things: that I am a great sinner and that Christ is a great Saviour.”

Quote
You ask, “What is sin?” It is wanting to control your life and world rather than letting God be in control; and putting yourself first, not only before God, but also before others. Sin accounts for the killing and maiming of people in Liège, Belgium this Christmas. It is why New Year’s Eve, according to Aviva, is the worst day of the year for burglaries and why Newcastle students, especially this year, are being told to lock doors. It is also the cause of good people doing wrong by omitting to do good, and with the innocent suffering with the guilty. It is behind all those “woes of sin and strife” we sang about. But that first Christmas God …

“loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins” (1 John 4.10)

Quote
Well, nothing happens by chance in God’s ordering.

In a way, like Mary, we are presented with the truth of Yeshua being with us, God with us, and we should be so absolutely in awe that we simply praise and trust. For he does have full control. And he wants good for us. His love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, goodness and self control. All good.

I am much more than I was, just knowing and talking with you all here. God's gift to me. Bless you all this Christmas.

Hi All and you Two,

And I find humbling too when I check some of the messages like this one,

'Humble', is not one of my best attributes you know!

Maybe this is the direction I am to take this year?

Yours in Christ,

Colin.

Maybe it's a message of humility we all need!  I sure do!

I cannot say too much in the face of God choosing a humble woman to bare His Son,choosing to enter into our degradation and sin sick world to find His bride and save the world that He created out of love. Cry

Yes, humble, like our Lord.

Yet also like him, bold in our witness and faith.
