Father, We seek your presence that we may be made aware of power beyond ourselves. Forgive us when we forget that your ability is always available to us as we struggle in our daily walk with thee.
We seek your presence, Father, because we need a strong shield against temptation, we are tempted daily by the devices of the world. Keep us we pray from compromising your truths or engaging in activity’s that are displeasing
We need your presence that we may find the ability and desire to be taught what is Godlike and right. We need your presence so that we might understand what is holy and sacred and eternal.
Father, we need your presence so that we might have a love for your word with all its power and insight and guidance. We need your presence so that we may be examples of Godlikeness as we walk in the community, and
as we show loyalty to your kingdom, and serve you in all humility among our fellow human beings, and as we show care for your creation. We pray this prayer in the name of Jesus, Amen.

The one true God
Dad, Is God real? My son, I'm going to be silly, even if it is for a moment, and answer that question with a question, how do you know God is not real?
It is a proven fact that
everyone, not some, not one or two, But everyone who has set out to disprove God’s existence has become true believers because of the evidence and the witness of God.
Everything they found or discovered through
their research pointed to one thing. God is real! God does exist; these men could not dispute the overwhelming evidence supporting the existence of God.
When all these men started their research, they were genuine
nonbelievers, skeptics, and hard-core atheists. When they finished their research, they were hard-core believers in the existence of God, all because they examined the evidence and found the truth. God does exist.

December, what a special month to be born. The Bible said two thousand years ago Jesus was born in Bethlehem; He was born in December also.
One of the greatest
events ever recorded in History was about to happen and the only ones the angels announced it to was a handful of shepherds.
When the angel announced the birth of Christ to the shepherds they said, do not be afraid,
for I bring you good tidings of great joy that will be for all people. For there is born to you this day a Savior, who is the Christ the Lord. “And this will be the sign to you; you will find a Baby wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.”
Suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
“Glory” to God in the highest,
And on earth peace,
Goodwill toward men!”
a wonderful message to hear before Christmas, especially the goodwill toward all men and woman.
Jesus said love one another as I have loved you.
Because most of us are
still carnal, and obey the flesh,
We find it hard to love everyone, and especially the people who have wronged us or have hurt us in some way. Jesus said love your enemies do good to those who hate you (Lk.6:35-36).
And pray for those who
spitefully use you and persecutes you (Matt.5:44).
Following Jesus starts with each person and how they respond to the way other people treated
them. As a Christian, do you obey God, or the flesh, or Satan. No matter how bad or how good people treat you, each person must respond in one of three ways, 1) obey God, 2) obey the flesh, or 3) obey Satan. Remember, obeying or disobeying God starts with
you. Jesus called His disciples individually and said to them, "you follow Me."
THE BIRTH OF CHRIST
Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent to a City of Galilee named Nazareth to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. And having come in the
angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among woman!” But when she saw him she was troubled at his saying and considered what manner of greeting this was. Then the angel said to her, do not be afraid
Mary for you have found favor with God.
And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God
will give Him the throne of His father David.
And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever and of His kingdom there will be no end.
Then Mary said to the angel, “How
can this be since I do not know a man?
And the angel answered and said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will
Overshadow you; therefore,
also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.
Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord!
Let it be to me according to your word.”
And the angel departed from her. Now Mary arose in those days and went into the hill country with haste to a City of Judah, and entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth. And it happened when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary that the baby leaped
in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Then she spoke out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among woman, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!
But why is this granted to me
that the mother of my
Lord should come to me? Foe indeed as soon as the voice of your Sounded in my ears, the baby leaped in my womb for joy. Blessed is she who believed for there will be a fulfillment of
those things which were told her from the Lord.
And Mary said; “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my savior. For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant;
For behold henceforth all generations will call me blessed. For He who is mighty has done great
Things for me and holy is His name.
And His mercy
is on those who fear Him. From generation to generation, He has shown Strength with His arm; He has scattered the proud In the imagination of their hearts. He has put down the mighty from their thrones, In addition, exalted the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things, And the rich He has sent away empty. He has helped His servant Israel, In remembrance of His mercy, as He spoke to our fathers, To Abraham and to his seed forever.
Mary remained with Elizabeth about three months, and returned to her house. End
