Dear Saints,

God bless you in the wonderful name of Jesus Christ.

As this Holiday Season approaches, don't forget to count your blessings. God has certainly given us so much to be thankful for. God is our Father, and we are joint-heirs with Jesus Christ. We know the Christ for whom Christmas was named. He is in us, and that's our hope of glory.

I always enjoy celebrating his first coming, and I can hardly wait until I can enjoy and celebrate his second coming. Just as surely as he came the first time, he will come again. The same God who promised his first arrival also guarantees his second. What a day that will be! We'll get to meet him in the air and forever be with him as declared in 
I Thessalonians 4:16,17.  We'll be like him, for we shall see him as he is, as promised in 
I John 3:2.

As you sit around your holiday tree (or however your family traditionally celebrates) opening gifts, don't forget the greatest gift you've ever received -- everlasting life and all that comes with it. Being God's kids we can continue to unwrap and unfold the greatness of the life God has given us to live. As you enjoy the delight on the faces of your loved ones as they open their presents and use them, think of the delight that God gets as He sees the eyes of your understanding enlightened to what you have as one of His children.

Enjoy the blessings and love we share with one another during the Holiday Season. God has given us His best. Let's not get caught up in the "busy-ness" and "stress" and "confusion" that the world goes through during this holiday time. Rather let's be a beacon of light to all who see us enjoy it to the fullest. As I Peter 3:15 reminds us.
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason for the hope that is in you with meekness and fear [reverence].

Our meekness to and reverence for God sets us apart from the rest of the world. Let us not forget to acknowledge him and share His goodness with others.

I love you. You are God's best.

Enjoy life in Him,

Wayne Clapp
