WHAT ARE YOU CELEBRATING THIS CHRISTMAS ?

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. (‭Luke‬ ‭2‬:‭10‬ NIV)

GOD'S MESSAGE TO YOU IS
 PERSONAL: I bring you...
 POSITIVE: Good news....
 INCLUSIVE:  for all the people

1). GOD LOVES ME

I want you to know all about Christ's love, although it is too wonderful to be measured. Then your lives will be filled with all that God is. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭3‬:‭19‬ CEV)

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. (‭1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭16‬b NIV)

... but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. (‭1 Timothy‬ ‭6‬:‭17‬b NIV)

The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made. (‭Psalm‬ ‭145‬:‭9‬ NIV)
 

2). GOD IS WITH ME

“A virgin will become pregnant and have a son, and he will be called Immanuel” (which means, “God is with us”). (‭Matthew‬ ‭1‬:‭23‬ GNT)

.. For God has said, “I will never leave you; I will never abandon you.” (‭Hebrews‬ ‭13‬:‭5‬bGNT)

When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭43‬:‭2‬ NLT)

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭2‬:‭10‬ NKJV)

3). GOD IS FOR ME

for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. (‭Luke‬ ‭2‬:‭11‬ NASB)
 

“What do you want me to do for you?” he asked. (‭Mark‬ ‭10‬:‭36 NIV)
 

“What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” (‭Mark‬ ‭10‬:‭ 51‬ NIV)

and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭11‬:‭24‬ NIV)

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭31‬ NIV)

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29‬:‭11‬ NIV)

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. (‭I John‬ ‭4‬:‭18‬ NKJV)
 

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (‭John‬ ‭3‬:‭16‬ NKJV)
