And So This Is Christmas

And So This Is Christmas


Every year we get asked “So, what does Christmas mean to you?” And we usually list things such as ‘helping, love, family, joy’ & last but not least ‘Happy Birthday Jesus’. But I recently rewatched one of a Pastors, My Pastors (Rev. Chris Oyakhilome) Christmas messages and he put it in the most simplest, truthful and fun way using an Acrostic format. 

See below please. πŸ˜€πŸ’ƒπŸΎ

All these wonderful things for one day!πŸŽ‰πŸ˜­

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” – Isaiah 9:6 

Christmas all began because God loved us so much and He wants us to spread, share and show that love to everyone. Jesus came to give us life, that God-Kind of life, full of love and success and lacking in nothing! 

God is a Father, Our Father and all He wants us for us to be Happy and Love Him and Others like He loves us & He sent Jesus to help us to do this. No Father wants their child to Suffer! And Jesus being born and alive in us today is God’s way of making sure that never happensπŸ’ͺ🏾. 

So, this is just a short post to say Merry Christmas, don’t forget that CHRIST is the reason for the season and I hope you had a wonderful or are having a wonderful time with the three F’s:

Family, Friends & Food!πŸŽ„πŸŽπŸŽ‰πŸ˜…

And I pray that your day is filled with laughter & Joy πŸ˜„βœ¨

Remember to always show love ❀️, help othersπŸ‘« & Share the Gospel – the Good News with someone todayπŸ™ŒπŸΎ!

A Life Worth Living

A Life Worth Living

Two weeks ago, I talked about not letting anyone rain on our parade and how we can do anything we set our minds too with the Holy Spirit as our guide.

This week, I’m talking about living that good life!πŸŽ‰ *cue party music*

(Side note – This is literally what I looked like coming out of my final exam this afternoon πŸ˜„)

God has given us a life of beauty, success, prosperity and favour. All those things point to a life full of enjoyment to me.πŸ™Œ 

We should take advantage of the new life we have in Christ, enjoying it to the fullest and bringing other people into it, so they can enjoy it with us – I mean, who wants to party alone all the timeπŸ™„? πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«πŸ‘­

Psalm 24: 1-2 says: 

“The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness of it, The world, and those who dwell in it.”

And because we are of God, then everything is ours too! Everything that belongs to Jesus Christ belongs to us too because we are joint-heirs with Him. So, really the World and everything in it, is ours and for us to enjoy. 

*hint hint*!This means that the best way to enjoy life is with God.

“Everything is already yours as a gift … the world, life, death, the present, the future – all of it is yours, and you are privileged to be in union with Christ, who is in union with God.” – 1 Corinthians 3:21-23 

In my previous post, I said that there’s enough success to go around. Well there’s also enough enjoyment and God’s goodness to go around. The earth is full of it. 

We shouldn’t live life, just existing, like “Que Sera, Sera” (Whatever will be, will be), but more Carpe diem! Seize the day and its opportunities! Take action. πŸ’₯ 

We’ve got that beautiful God kind of life, that Zoe. So, don’t think we can just be living ordinary lives and that there are certain things we can’t get or don’t deserve. Everything is already ours. 

“Everything was created through him; nothing – not one thing! – came into being without him. What came into existence was Life, and the Life was Light to live by. The Life-Light blazed out of the darkness; the darkness couldn’t put it out.” – John 1:3-5

Let’s not let anybody try and put out that light inside of us. Shine brightly, living life to the fullest and enjoying what God has given you, like he intended. 

Be happy always and appreciate all that there is to this wonderful life in Christ. From morning to night, family and friends, the food that you eat and the people that you meet. Enjoy everything and every moment of life and all it has to offer and all you have to offer it.
