King of Kings

~King of Kings and Lord of Lords~

"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior
which is Christ the Lord.

This was part of the glorious proclamation heard by shepherd watching thier flocks out in the field that night. The angel of the Lord came upon them and the glory of the lord shone all around them...and the angel said unto them, Fear not for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people. "For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign for you, You shall find the babe wraped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.
Then suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

The Glory of God and the hope of all the ages has come and was born to a virgin, a young woman named Mary.(Lk.1:27,30)And His name shall be called JESUS.

What child is this, who, laid to rest
On Mary's lap was sleeping
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet
While shepherds watch are keeping

This, this is Christ the king
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring Him laud
The babe the Son of Mary

Why lies He in such mean estate
Where ox and lamb are feeding?
Good Christian, fear, for sinners here
The silent word is pleading

This, this is Christ the king
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring Him laud
The babe, the Son of Mary

So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh
Come peasant, king, to own Him
The king of kings salvation brings
Let loving hearts enthrone Him

This, this is Christ the king
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring Him laud
The babe, the Son of Mary.

Bring the gift and fulness of your heart before the Lord this year, to
recieve from him the most precious gift of life, the fulness of love,
the peace and the salvation that only He can give. For this reason He
was born that you might have life and have it more abundantly,(Jn.10:10).
Not to be confussed whith the possession of things that wear out with
time and use, but a life of meaning, value, and of knowing Him, His love,
His forgiveness, having a relationship, a friend. For this reason He
was born, that he would die for your sins and mine,(Jn.3:16)and of the whole
world. He shed His life giving blood, (the life of all flesh is in
the blood), as an attonement and a sacrifice for all mankind, to
rescue sinful man,(For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of
God...Rom.3:23) and reconsile us back to himself.


Praise, honor and Glorify the Lord each day of your life, for He is worthy.

Touching Lives
The True Meaning Of Christmas

It was only five days before Christmas. The spirit of the season hadn't yet caught up with me, even though cars packed the parking lot of our Huston area Target Shopping Center. Inside the store, it was worse. Shopping carts and last minute shoppers jammed the aisles. Why did I come today? I wondered. My feet ached almost as much as my head. My list contained names of several people who claimed they wanted nothing but I knew their feelings would be hurt if I didn't buy them anything. Buying for someone who had everything and deploring the high cost of items, I considered gift-buying anything but fun.
Hurriedly, I filled my shopping cart with last minute items and proceeded to the long checkout lines. I picked the shortest but it looked as if it would mean at least a 20 minute wait.
In front of me were two small children- a boy of about 10 and a young girl about 5. The boy wore a ragged coat. Enormously large, tattered tennis shoes jutted far out in front of his much too short jeans. He clutched several crumpled dollar bills in his grimy hands. The girl's clothing resembled her brother's. Her head was a matted mass of curly hair. Reminders of an evening meal showed on her small face. she carried a beautiful pair of shiny, gold house slippers. As the Christmas music sounded in the store's stereo system, the girl hummed along off-key, but happily.
When we finally approached the checkout register, the girl carefully placed the shoes on the counter. she treated them as though they were a treasure. The clerk rang up the bill. "That will be $6.09" she said. the boy laid his crumpled dollars atop the stand while he searched his pockets. He finally came up with $3.12. "I guess we will have to put them back," he bravely said. "We will come back some other time, maybe tomorrow." With that statement, a soft sob broke from the little girl. "But Jesus would have loved those shoes, "she cried. "Well, we'll go home and work some more. Don't cry. We'll come back." He said.
Quickly I handed $3.00 to the cashier. these children had waited in line for a long time. And, after all, it was Christmas. Suddenly a pair of arms came around me and a small voice said, "Thank you Sir."
"What did you mean when you said Jesus would like the shoes.?" I asked. The small boy answered, "Our mommy is sick and going to heaven, Daddy said she might go before Christmas to be with Jesus." The girl spoke, "My Sunday school teacher said the streets in heaven are shiny gold, just like these shoes. Won't mommy be beautiful walking on those streets to match these shoes?" My eyes flooded as I looked into her tear streaked face. "Yes" I answered. "I am sure she will." Silently I thanked God for using these children to remind me of the true spirit of giving.
Christmas is not about the amount of money paid, nor the amount of gifts purchased, nor trying to impress friends and relatives. Christmas is about the love in your heart to share with those as Jesus Christ has shared with each of us. Christmas is about the birth of Jesus whom God sent to show the world how much he really loves us. Please show this love as we think of the upcoming season and carry it throughout the year.

God Bless, Have a Very Merry Christmas

Count your blessings
Pray for these and their love ones.
