Goodwill Toward Men!

MXart

“Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men.” (Luke 2:14)

When these words were first spoken, the earth was not peaceful, nor was there goodwill among men. In our day the earth is experiencing certain upheavals and turmoil that hinder peace as well. God is not pleased with the wickedness and unrest that permeates the earth, but He has provided a way out for all those who would call upon Him to experience a peace that only He can offer.

 Another translation of this verse is:

“Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”

This world can offer a certain kind of peace, but only a relationship that has a life of Faith is pleasing to God. This gives our heart that true peace and satisfaction of the soul we long for. That’s why we’re commanded to repent of our foolish ways and receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We’ve all failed in certain ways, but it is pleasing to our Heavenly Father when we accept the free gift He so graciously offered the earth by giving us His Son. God is well pleased when we honor the sacrifice of His Son!

Today, there are those who believe the Christmas story is folly or some fairytale we celebrate just for tradition's sake, but the believer in heart is someone who has accepted and acknowledged Jesus Christ as being the Savior of the world. This is the true story of Christmas!
 
Jesus came into this world to reveal the knowledge of eternal salvation and give us hope in the life we now live. When we embrace this truth, asking Him into our heart, He promises to give us a new spirit, a new identity, and a new direction. When this becomes a reality, His peace will flood our hearts and the enemy of fear will be eliminated. We will experience a strong confidence before God that is humble, yet bold.

For everyone who receives Jesus Christ into their life, they become a son and daughter of the Most High. As a result, we can trust He will lead us through any valley, over any mountain and through any trial or difficulty we face. My friends, when we’re weak, He’s strong. Let’s believe and live this truth out in our lives.

This Christmas, I pray that we will understand what this “baby in a manger” really did for humankind.
 
My mission and message is to proclaim that Jesus Christ came to save the lost, of which we all were. But notice, I said, “Were.”  Now that we are in Christ and confessing Him as our Savior we are in absolute right standing before God.
 
I traveled across the United States last year sharing this message and my plans are the same for 2012. You will find me at many Moto X events, Churches, and other venues, holding worship services to honor our Lord and touching lives with the kindness of God.
 
May His blessings rest upon you and your family during this wonderful season!
 
Merry Christmas
