MORNINGTIME 2978
 
Happy Birthday Jesus. 1 Ecclesirominthians 7:11. Well, maybe those exact words in that order aren't found anywhere in the Bible, but the intent is, if you cross reference a few verses and tack it together. OK, so moving on, yes, Jesus was born and we most definitely are Happy about that. Question, exactly what DAY was He born, and does anyone really care??? Some people don't agree with December 25, 0000 because He was really born sometime in the late fall. And then we have people who study history and CHANGING CALENDARS, and we find Jesus was actually born about 3 years before He was born. This makes Him born in the year 3 B. C., that's 3 years, before Christ. So, again, does it REALLY matter what day He was born? The absolute TRUTH is, HE WAS BORN, PERIOD. And that's the GOoD News of the Bible. "One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike . Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind". Romans 14:5. Translation? Some people celebrate the ONE day of the year that Jesus was born on. Some people celebrate The Fact that Jesus was born and celebrate that all year long. To each their own and both are right. If we can agree that, Jesus was born, we have the start of some common ground. If you can't agree with that, then you probably won't agree that, "In the beginning, God", and that would pretty much dismiss the whole Bible. OK, so you're on the Prayer List. For those of you who do Believe, go ahead and enjoy the giving of Gifts, turning on Lights, and being Kind to strangers this Holiday Season. Or if you want to, you can do all those things all year long. Enjoy HIS Gift, Live in HIS Light, DO unto others... ,  TRUST Him that He really is Who He says He Is, and PRAY for those who don't Believe. Christ was born of a virgin, died on The Cross, rose from the dead the 3rd day, ascended into Heaven, and now sits at the Father's right hand interceding with the Father for all who will Follow Him. Believe that, and, Be Blessed.
