I’m thankful that Jesus is my Savior. I hope that he is your Savior too. Our Savior was born in a lowly crib in a manger. He died on a cross. He was resurrected to be with his Father. He now sits at the Father’s right hand and prays for you – if you’ve accepted him into your heart – and for me.
Because of his life, death and resurrection, we too may have life… an abundant life.At this time of year, we Christians ought to be especially grateful for what our Savior has done for us. He makes a way for us to experience life as God intends for us. In the context of health, through Jesus we can have peace, joy and love. When these qualities are present in a big way in our lives, they are health promoting. They favor good health. Our good health enables us to best use the gifts and talents that we have to serve others. Our good health contributes to having energy and a vibrancy and a countenance that is attractive to others. It gives us an opportunity – when asked by others how we are able to be that way – to talk about our Lord and Savior and the difference he has made in our lives.
Christmas is a special time to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, our Savior.
I hope that several times a day, throughout these next few days, you’ll stop to remember why this holiday is really special for you. Celebrate it. Thank and praise God for his Son. Allow his Spirit to live through you in significant way – significant enough to be a bright light, a witness to others. And, ask his Spirit to enable you to make healthier choices to better care for your body, his temple.
Wishing for you a Merry Christmas!
