Before Christmas Day, we prepare our hearts to celebrate the birth of our Savior by remembering not only the events surrounding His birth, but also the fullness of who He is and why He came. Jesus, through His life, death, and resurrection, came to show us and make us the kind of weird this world needs most; a kind of weird that brings light, life, and freedom to all who believe!
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
