"Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.  Look to the Lord and His strength; seek his face always."  

Psalm 105: 3-5

From Pastor's Pen

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. In him was life,[a] and the life was the light of men. The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. 11 He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. [John 1:1. 4. 9-11]

 

     When Joseph and Mary entered Bethlehem, as prophesied of old, did the innkeeper say: ‘Come, Lord Jesus, be our guest.’

     When the Magi inquired of Herod, where is He who is born King of the Jews [Matthew 2:2], did the establishment of Israel say: ‘Come, Lord Jesus, be our guest.’

     As the annual celebration of Christmas fast approaches, will we pray: ‘Come, Lord Jesus, be our guest’ – come and dine with us, come and bless our food?  At Christmas, and every day of the New Year, are we willing to ask Jesus to be our guest every day in all we do?  After all, that is why He was born in that welcoming stable so many centuries ago. He came to dine with us, to be a part of our loves, to speak with us through His Word. 

     Scripture says, The true light…came to his own,[b] and his own people[c] did not receive him. 12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,  [John 1:9a, 11-12]

     Amen.  Come, Lord Jesus, be our guest.
