What does Christmas mean to you ?

Christmas Musings

I know we are in that special spirit of Christmas all around the world no matter what time it is in the world right now. With most dining tables, big or small filled with Chicken, beef, rice, pasta and all sorts of delicacies there is in the world. I myself will likely make some pounded yam and egusi soup for my enjoyment today, all my fellow Africans know what I mean now, hopefully I’m really inspired.

While I lay awake this early morning of Christmas, 3:00am to be precise, I start to ponder on what Christmas means to me and this was what I came up with remembering the Christmas message I was opportune to have listened to recently by my Man of God, Rev. Chris Oyakhilome. I write:

Christmas to me means Christ in me; Christ in me means Christ is Light for me.

Christ in me means that Christ has become my light and there are three basic things that Light connotes to me. They are:

 Direction

 Since Christ is in me, I now have a purpose. My life now has a meaning. I no longer run this race of life with uncertainty (1Corinthians 9:26). Unlike many, everyday there is a purpose for my existence. Halleluiah!!

 Revelation

I now have knowledge. Christ has been made unto me wisdom. I can never be confused in life because knowledge is now inside of me. Even when nobody knows it, I do because Christ, knowledge is in me. In any situation or circumstance I find myself, all I need to do is to tap into the wisdom inside of me. Thank you Jesus.

Development

Whenever Light comes, there is development. I just keep getting better, always. The glory is an ever increasing glory in my life. Every time our spirits get engaged in contemplating the Glory of God, we become that Glory that we see, as we study God’s word. That’s why I tell myself “Hannah, it CANNOT get worse for you, it can only get better, you are born again and Christ (the anointing) now lives in you”.

Christmas to me means Christ in me; Christ in me also means Christ is Life to me.

Christ being my Life means to me that, He is my…..

Source

Christ is my source, my unending source. I’ll never run dry in life. In everything I just know that I’ve got a source and a very reliable one at that in the person of Jesus Christ our Lord. I now live in abundance in all things that pertain to life and Godliness. With this consciousness, I know I can never be poor, I cannot fail in life. This is not because of how much I’ve got in my bank account. I choose not to see my wealth through the eyes of the world, but by the Word. I’m always prospering, Glory to God!!

Sustenance

Not only does He supply me or brings to me, he makes sure I have in abundance, I never run dry. I’m always glorious in health, relationship and all that concerns me. This is how Life is for me now that I have Christ.

Success

I give life to everything I touch. Whatever I get involved in, turns out a success. I’m definitely a winner. Christ has now become my Life. Halleluiah

There must be something you get in your spirit as you celebrate this season. The song is not enough, the carols and jingle bells is not enough, neither is the plenty food and drinks enough. You must become LIGHT AND LIFE conscious. This is what He came to make me and you, and do through you and I to our world.

I am THE BLESSING that Christ has given to this world. This is my consciousness as I go about my life. I know that when I come, the blessing has come. So, even today and throughout this season, even in the coming year, square up your shoulders, be bold as you visit and celebrate with your family and your world, because when you arrive in their midst, the blessing has arrived.

Remember ” You are born again, born into His presence where there is fullness of Joy and at His right hand where there are pleasures evermore” 2 Corinthians 5:17

If you are not born again, then your life is yet to begin. Please get in contact with someone you know who is and let the person lead you to Christ. Life begins in Christ and His arms are wide open to receive you today.

Or you can say these words with me and as you say them, mean them from your heart:

“Dear Jesus, I believe that you died for me, I believe that you are risen from the dead and today I take you as my Lord and personal saviour. I choose to follow you and live the life you’ve called me to live. Thank you for accepting me as your child. I’m born again” Halleluiah!

So now that you are born again, you will have to Identify  yourself with the body of Christ, get yourself to a bible based teaching ministry and get committed. This will help to groom you and help take you to the next level in your fellowship with the Master. I love you and welcome to the family of God, of Lights.

So rounding up, Christmas means:  I am in Christ Now, He lives in me Now and He lives through me Now.

If you haven’t believed this then you don’t know what Christmas means. I trust we believe this and more.

Have a beautiful day, remember we are still celebrating our risen king and our lives all together (the body of Christ)

I love you all soo much, plenty “Huggs and kisses” from me.

There’s More In God

Christian Growth

Have you ever felt the sense of boredom in your walk with God as a Child of God. Ever been tired of reading the scriptures and learning more of God’s word? Perhaps you’ve come to that point in your life where you are satisfied with all that you’ve found out in your relationship with God. Then this post is for you. Maybe you are not bored or tired, then this post will encourage you, as I was after I heard them while studying my daily devotional this morning.

Some Christians have reached the point where their lives have become boring and they’re wondering, “What more is there in God?” They’veImage become so used to the worship and other activities in church; even God’s Word has become common to them; what a sad situation to be in!

What they haven’t understood is that it’s not just about the activities that take place in church; it’s about the glory that comes out of those activities. When you understand what comes out from the Spirit, you’ll never be bored; you’d never ask, “What’s more?” People become tired or uninspired by the things of God because they’re carnally minded (they are moved by their five senses, their feelings get the best of them); just like the children of Israel that got fed up with the manna that was coming out of heaven, and started clamouring for meat!

Walking with the Lord is a journey of endless glory; there’s always more to desire and enjoy in Him. The more He reveals Himself to you, the more hungry you are for Him. Imagine Moses: after he had walked with the Lord for so long, and the Lord had done so many wonderful things in his presence and through him, he still wanted more. He said, “Lord, show me your glory” (Exodus 33:18); because he knew there was more.

Our God is so great; there’s no end to the greatness and awesomeness of His Majesty. Keep growing in the things of the Spirit; keep learning the Word, with an unquenchable desire to know Him more and have His glory revealed in your life. Remember, if you seek Him, you’d find Him (Matthew 7:7); if you hunger and thirst for His righteousness, you’ll be filled (Matthew 5:6).

Some of us might be asking, how do I stay focused? How do I not get tired? The truth is, if you are trully subject to the Spirit of God, you’ll never be tired or feel exhausted, for the Love of God just makes you want more. There’s this song by our very own Minister Sinach, (I’ll leave the URL bellow), it tells the story of this post.

And in the words of one of my dear readers,

I reached that point in my Christian walk. The thing is to keep striving, keep praying and keep reaching to God. The feeling in you may be for you to have a change in direction, growth or for you to move in a certain way. I don’t think it is necessarily a bad feeling, it’s your response to it that matters,

“Even if you are subject to the will of God and under the spirit you can still get tired especially if you are not functioning in a role God has prepared for you , it’s your response to it that matters and not giving up on God.. I have seen people grow by reevaluating their role in church when responding to this “tired/bored” routine. .The truth is if you seek God truly, He will lead you to where you are supposed to be in ministry , in church, in relationships and you will flourish. It’s like finding your place in a puzzle. Growth cannot come unless there is change and I know that responding to that restless feeling with direction from God can beneficial. You become cynical and jaded if you continue without responding by seeking God for direction”

So my fellow Love and Reality readers, THERE’S MORE IN GOD and in this coming year, decide for yourself that you want more of Him, and surely you’ll never get enough.

You can study more from this scriptures: Ecclesiastes 3:11; 1 Corinthians 2:11

Here’s a Prayer for you:

I thank you for granting me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of you. I’m increasing more and more in knowledge and in judgment, able to discern and function at all times in the centre of your will, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
