We reflect upon the Nativity of Our Lord and think further about how the Incarnation of the Living Word of God might impact the Church, our lives, and indeed this world during this New Year. At this time let us pause to reflect upon the wonder of the “Word made flesh” and dwelling among us. We are NOT an orphan planet, but part of a beautiful creation that our Father God Adoni has not only blessed.. but LOVES constantly with arms outstretched, welcoming us home to be united with Him through Jesus Christ, Yeshua the long awaited Messiah of Israel.
As world leaders struggle to find answers to global problems that are the result of our own chaos and sin, the answer is ever before them in the person of Christ.. The One whom they reject and cast out of western society as an intruder, as laws are passed that disregard the law and the love, compassion, and mercy of God. Finding God’s will in the midst of a pagan society is as simple – and costly- as a total on-going heart-surrender to Jesus Christ, the crucified, risen and ascended Lord of all.
To do this effectively we need a portrait of Jesus. We find this in the pages of Holy Scripture. The Early Church Fathers add colour to those pages as we learn of the struggles, heart searching and triumphs of the early Church. These writings are all here on my website, totally free for you to download.. around 200 individual volumes.
As we consider the impact of these historic and eternal truths upon the imprint of our own souls, I pray that my online library of free Bibles and devotional books will help you in your quest in 2013. May the God of Israel and the Redeemer of all mankind bless and inspire you by His Holy Spirit now and always, amen.
