“For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. To the one we are an aroma that brings death; to the other, an aroma that brings life. And who is equal to such a task? Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God.” “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 2:15-18 NIV

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 NIV Choose to fill your mind with God's Word every day. When you begin to renew your mind with God's Word, and you replace old lies, false ideas, and misconceptions with the truth, it will set you free from the habits and hang-ups that limit your life. Your actions will naturally begin to align with your new attitudes. By Pastor Rick Warren

This is the perfect reminder that we, as followers of Christ, should love everyone just as Jesus did. We may not condone others Choice's, lifestyle or religion, but that doesn’t mean it’s okay for us to judge and criticize them (guilty myself of this). I want to challenge you to work on loving EVERYONE, not just those who share similar values and lifestyle choices. When we bring others down, all we are actually doing is pushing them further away from God. Our society is constantly looking at Christians and the examples we are leading. By choosing to exemplify love, kindness and grace in all we do, who knows how many people will end up having a chance to bump into Jesus.

Matthew25:37-46 (NIV)

““Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’ “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.””

‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ understanding this and learning to love others, just as Jesus love's us, so I ask you and myself included, what will you not do for Jesus? A simple smile, a hello or a simple act of kindness can change someone whole out look on life. No matter how hard we try to be righteous, we all are human and we all make mistakes, falling short of the Glory of God. So as we ask Jesus Christ for forgiveness, we are forgiven, so should we forgive other. Sugar and salt may be mixed together but ants reject the salt and carry away only the sugar. Select the right people in life and make your life better and sweeter. If you fail to achieve your dreams, change your ways not your God. Remember, trees change their leaves and not their roots. People have two things on their lips, "smile and silence". Smile can solve problem while Silence can avoid the problem. You can't be at peace in your heart and endure the hurting brokenness at the same time, so reject the salt, change your leaves, break your silence and cure the hurting brokenness. Call out onto God to find the peace in your heart and feel the sweet living water flow up your roots to blossom new leaves on your tree of life.

Matthew 9:18-25 (NIV)
"While he was saying this, a synagogue leader came and knelt before him and said, “My daughter has just died. But come and put your hand on her, and she will live.” Jesus got up and went with him, and so did his disciples. Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.” Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment. When Jesus entered the synagogue leader’s house and saw the noisy crowd and people playing pipes, he said, “Go away. The girl is not dead but asleep.” But they laughed at him. After the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took the girl by the hand, and she got up."

Let us renew our minds, body's and soul's in Jesus Christ. The reason why God sent his only Son, so we my be saved from our life of sin. Through the blood of Christ be can be saved and have eternal life, by accepting Jesus Christ into our life as are Lord and Savior. Once you Truly start studying and understanding the Word of God, you will see and follow in the ways of Jesus Christ. As we are being lead in one direction, one may be reaching in faith and healing, just as we see in ( Matthew 9:18-25 ) its by Faith in just a moments time we may heal the sick and then raise the dead into eternal life in Christ Jesus. Stop and take the time for healing of faith, then continue on to raise the dead. Only by our Faith an our walk with Jesus Christ, shell He live in us and guide us in all we do and say in the Truth of The Word of God.

Merry Christmas all, let us remember the true meaning of Chirst-mas today and everyday of the rest of our life. Let us remember, its about giving. Giving of one self to Jesus Christ in your life, that means the less of me and the more of Jesus Christ in our life. So He may be the beacon of light with in you to other.

Happy Birthday Jesus, Thank you for all you done and will do in me.

Happy Birthday Jesus, Thank you for all you done and will do in me.
A thought, unspoken, will die stillborn. If you read the Word, read it aloud and let it settle into your spirit.. As an example of speaking vs just reading, or thinking silently..consider
Matthew 6:31
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
You take a thought, you give it life by saying...You speak your thoughts into existence..
