Christmas issue2006 Issue 4 (ISSN 2163-7768)



The Lord's coming to earth was an action of love. He came to earth with a message of hope, love, and forgiveness. What is most special about Christmas time is that we remember to focus on the Lord, to give thanks for His many blessings, and to express our gratitude that He is present in our lives.

In Isaiah 40:3 it says "Prepare a way for the Lord," and in the gospels we are reminded f this prophecy. I believe that as we prepare the way for the Lord in our lives, He prepares the way for us to experience heaven on earth.

Christmas is a time to celebrate the Lord's presence in our lives. It is also a time to strive to increase the experience of His presenceon this earth. Choose an action you can take today to share the hopeful message of Christmas - a message of love.

"A person's life from infancy to old age is nothing else than an advance from the world towards heaven, the last stage of which is death, the actual transition from one life to the next."
