How Did Jesus Look?
The look of Jesus makes a difference in our lives.
Have you ever wondered how Jesus actually looked? Jesus always did what He saw God doing and His revelation of God is the highest and the best that we will ever have. How He looked then and how He looks now is similar.
Someone asks a question and many watched closely to see how He looked. The lawyer asks, "What must I do to inherit eternal life?" and the answer that comes from Jesus is one of truth, clairity and it is concise.
When others looked into Jesus face there were questions, requests, and concerns that He met with love and power. These were in His words and in the way He looked. Jesus' face is One in which we all must look in order to see our sins forgiven.
Jesus' face is One in which we desire to look to find Onehundred Percent complete love of God for each and every one of us, that gives us new life and daily gratitude.

New Video -- Our Dream Come True
This Time Of Anticipation
Let us join together for a time of preparation.
Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you Good News of Great Joy for All the People... Luke 2:9-10
Our anticipation of the celebration of the birth of the Christ Child is key! May this birthday of Christ be thought out, bathed with prayers, and filled with child-like faithfulness and trust.
Think with me about who you will invite to your Christmas celebration, for Christ loves us when we are invitational and inclusive of those who may be alone or in need. Let's also consider those who are home-bound or in retirement homes who will need prayers and a visit from us to know we love them.
Allow us to consider together, and perhaps make a list, of those whom we need to make a phone call to so that we commune in Christ's love.
Let's open our hearts to those in other countries who are suffering from war or struggles out of poverty. And may we pray together for Christ to open our eyes to those around us who are in circumstances like a conflictive marriage, or a dying child or parent, and those who do not speak about their troubles and yet suffer quietly.
God has given us the greatest gift in Jesus Christ. Read chapters 1 and 2 of Luke's gospel. The authors, disciple Luke the Physician and Jesus' mother Mary, have written about Christ's birth so that your trust may deepen and your faith grow. The Holy Spirit will aid you as you read and make this story personal for you. And your shareing with others will be blessed by Christ because He loves you, His cheerful giver!
