Glory Tabernacle Ministry
Salvation | Sanctification | Service
Christ gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us and purify us unto Himself, a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
That every member will be a living model of genuine salvation, sanctification, and service to the Lord.
Many people in our society are very familiar with the word 'Christmas'. It is a time of remembrance of the time that Jesus Christ came into the world to deminstrate the love of God to humanity. It is meant to give to man, hope, peace, joy and love that come from God. These, God, the Father sent with the Son (Jesus Christ), to give to all that come to Him and accept Him as their Lord and Saviour. So, if you are looking for hope, peace, joy and love this Christmas season, look to God.
For genuine believers in Christ, we know that because He came the first time, we can live with hope, peace, joy and love till He comes again. Apostle Peter admonished us in 1 Peter 1:13 that, "Rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ". The hope we have in Jesus Christ brings joy into our hearts; and when we know the love of God, His peace He will impact. We have an inheritance reserved in heaven, a living hope through the resurrection of Christ from the dead (1 Peter 1:3-5). We will love life and see good days if we turn from evil and do good, if we seek peace, for the Lord watches over the righteous and hear their prayers. We experience inexpressible joy even though we have trials because our faith being tested and proven genuine. We are to love each other with a pure heart because we have been born again through the word of God which lives and abides forever.
Keep these in mind as you celebrate Christmas!
