Christmas 2014 – Fulfilled 01

Fulfilled2014.jpg

Fulfilled 01

At Partakers, like most of the world, we are now on the countdown to Christmas! This year we will look at how the birth, life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ was fulfilment of words and promises spoken about down through the ages – through countless years as people looked to God to rescue them.

The first Christmas almost 2,000 years ago is the time when the invisible becomes visible. When God who is outside of time and space, entered time and space. This Almighty God becomes a weakened baby, in what we call the incarnation. Almighty God has become one of his created beings – a helpless human.

 John 3:16 sums this up well “For this is how God loved the world: He sent his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.

One of God’s servants, one of Jesus’ followers – the Apostle Paul – said something similar in Romans 8:3 “So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins.

Over the next 2 weeks, we will look at some of those words as given in what we call the Old Testament and how they were fulfilled in the New Testament. Some of those things could have been fulfilled by deliberate human intervention (or even Jesus Himself)… but not all of them…

Starting at our next podcast, we will start looking at just a few of them in this our Christmas series for 2014! See you tomorrow!

A Christmas Reflection…

Image

I wonder how your Christmas was? Did you give gifts to others, even though they may or may not have deserved it? Did you receive gifts, even if you deserved them or not?

This year we had a grace Christmas… We gave gifts to a few people we know… My wife received a couple of gifts from a couple of people at her work place… We received cards from people as gifts and we valued them all as if they were gold because people took time to write them… But apart from that, nothing… But this is being told neither as a complaint or as a plea… This is being told, because many people around the world, including Christians didn’t even get a card from anybody for the celebration of the birth of their Saviour, Jesus Christ.

It is also a reflection of God’s grace… God gives, gives more and gives even more still… Yet rarely does He receive – particularly the totality of lives who claim to follow Him… His demands are easy to identify if you claim to follow Him… He wants all of your life – not just the parts you want to give Him… Is it difficult to do? Yes! But that is one reason we were given the Holy Spirit – to help us become more like God the Son, whose birth we celebrate at Christmas, whose death and resurrection we celebrate at Easter and whose sacrificial death we remember in the Communion or Eucharist…

In this new year of 2014, please do desire to give over to Jesus, who is to be your Lord & Master, those areas of your life you are holding back on?
