Jesus Calling: December 24I speak to you from the depths of eternity. Before the world was formed, I AM! You hear Me in the depths of your being, where I have taken up residence. I am Christ in you, the hope of Glory. I, your Lord and Savior, are alive within you. Learn to tune in to My living Presence by seeking Me in silence.
As you celebrate the wonder of My birth in Bethlehem, celebrate also your rebirth into eternal life. This everlasting gift was the sole purpose of My entering your sin-stained world. Receive My gift with awe and humility. Take time to explore the vast dimensions of My Love. Allow thankfulness to flow freely from your heart in response to My glorious gift. Let My Peace rule in your heart, and be thankful.
Psalm 90:2 (NLT)
2 Before the mountains were born,
before you gave birth to the earth and the world,
from beginning to end, you are God.
Colossians 1:27 (NLT)
27 For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.
Additional insight regarding Colossians 1:26-27: Through Christ, God's "message" was made open to all. God's secret plan is "Christ lives in you" - God planned to have his Son, Jesus Christ, live in the hearts of all who believe in him - even Gentiles like the Colossians. Do you know Christ? He is not hidden if you will come to him.
Colossians 3:15 (NLT)
15 And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.
