The Reason for the SEASON


We are celebrating the birth of Christ. He was born for us so that when we do wrong our sins are paid. As you read the word you will see that we all will sin. We are all born into sin. There are a lot of things we may do daily that does not please GOD however, he loves us so. We need to really remove all that which is not of GOD so that we can live that life he has designed for us. We can do that through Jesus, as he died on the cross for our sins.

Believe that Jesus died for our sins, ask him to come into our hearts and forgive you. Once you do that you are cleansed and made whole. 1 John 1:9 says “But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong.” AMEN

It’s time to look at Christmas in a new way other than just gift giving as that is not the reason for the season. Invite Jesus into your heart if you haven’t already so that you can live a life full of peace, joy, and happiness not just for Christmas but each and every day. If you have fallen off rededicate yourself.

REJOICE! Jesus is the Reason for the Season

Luke 2:4-19

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.” So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.

“Becoming Free”


Psalm 34:18 “ The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.”

As it is stated in Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” This means that as your transformation is being done, a metamorphosis will occur. Let’s look at the caterpillar how it becomes a butterfly. The caterpillar is in this shell and as it is working it way out of that shell it becomes a cocoon then a butterfly.

The stages of the butterfly start with it being an egg, a caterpillar, a cocoon, and then the butterfly. As a human your stage is being in that shell of control, deciding on becoming you, moving into you, and then being you. Let me give you a real life scenario; as you enter a relationship and you commit yourself wholeheartedly to that relationship and that commitment turns into someone controlling you. After you come to your senses you realize that this is not how it supposes to be so you take it upon yourself to take back your life. What you did is work your way out of that shell and set yourself free to be you.

I leave you with these few verses to read and meditate on in becoming a butterfly.

2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”

2 Corinthians 3:18 “And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.”

1 Corinthians 15:42-44 “So is it with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable; what is raised is imperishable. It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.”

You can obtain this transformation by; choosing to be transformed from your old ways and becoming that new you, by seeking GOD’s words and living it, by believing that GOD will transform you, pray as it is stated in Matthew 7:7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you”, and lastly by your vision, write it down and follow it.

Butterfly to me means setting yourself free to be who GOD has called you to be.

READ, PRAY, and MEDITATE on the word daily.
