Jesus answered, “If I honor Myself, My honor is nothing. It is My Father who honors Me, of whom you say that He is your God. Yet you have not known Him, but I know Him. And if I say, ‘I do not know Him,’ I shall be a liar like you; but I do know Him and keep His word. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.”
Then the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?”
Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”

Jesus prayed for us “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth” (John 17:17). The only infallible source of God’s truth is His Word, the Bible. We need to Study the Word, meditate on it and reflect on it everyday. As we do that our minds are renewed, unwanted anxieties, worries and lustful thoughts and hate are replaced by faith, truth and love. We grow in God’s wisdom and knowledge. and an inner transformation takes place. Dear Lord, This New Year give us a thirst for Your Word. Sanctify us we pray. In Jesus’ Name Amen

For to us a Child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace”. - Isaiah 9:6 In the midst of all the festivities and the celebrations, let’s remember why we are doing all of this. Christmas is about the “birth” of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. How He left heaven to be born in a lowly manger. His birth brought great joy to the world. Shepherds, wise men, and angels all shared in the excitement. Let us celebrate this Christmas, with a grateful heart.
