Merry Christmas!

I love Christmas for the simple reason that the Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us (John 1:14).  I love the incarnation of God!  I love that Christmas represents the time when the Church celebrates the fact that Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.  I love that He who created all things became part of His creation (Colossians 1:15-20; Hebrews 1:1-3).  I do not care about the debates over whether Jesus was actually born on December 25.  The point is that He was born of the virgin Mary (Matthew 1:18-23), lived a sinless life (1 Peter 2:22), performed might miracles for God was with Him (Acts 10:38) , He died (John 19:30), rose again on the third day(1 Corinthians 15:1-4) and ascended to the right hand of God on high (Acts 1:11).  Jesus will come again (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 22:20).

A Note From John Wesley’s Journal

I was reading through John Wesley’s journal a bit today and noticed this:

Monday, January 1, 1739.

My brother Charles and Whitefield (George Whitefield) were present at our love feast in Feterlane, with about sixty of our brethren.  About three in the morning, as we were continuing instant in prayer, the power of God came mightily upon us, inasmuch that many cried out for exceeding joy and many fell to the ground.  As soon as we were recovered a little from that awe and amazement at the presence of His Majesty, we broke out with one voice, “We praise Thee, O God: we acknowledge Thee to be the Lord.”

What a mighty prayer meeting that must have been!  John and Charles Wesley along with George Whitefield and sixty other brethren all seeking God fervently.  I would love to have seen this prayer meeting.

Colossians 4:2.
