Seeking the Savior
John 12:20 and 21, "Now there were certain Greeks among those who came to worship at the feast. They came to Philip and asked him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus". The wise men came from afar, "Let us go see". The shepherds said, Let's go, let's see. They wanted to see Jesus. They were earnest in their search. King James translation says; "He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him". This Christmas let us earnestly, diligently seek him, Jesus. What does diligently mean? Be hungry in your quest. Be relentless in your search. Let us not go after things or possessions. But, seek our King. Seek his as the shepherds did. Worship him as the wise men did. Risk whatever it takes to see Jesus Christ. God rewards those who seek him. The bible promises us, we will find him. Hebrews 2:9 says," But we see Jesus". Hebrews 12:2, " Lokking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith". If we seek, wewill surely find and see him. This Christmas, let's put first things first. Isa.9:6, "For unto us a child is born. Unto us a son is given. And the government will be upon His shoulders. And His name will be called Wonderful, Councilor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace". Amen. Let us praise his name forever... Get excited. Not only did he come, but "He is risen".
From Pastor Paul and family, sister Claudia and all Victory Life leadership, we pray you all have a blessed Christmas season. God bless you one and all.
A CALL TO PRAY
Phil. 4:6, Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thankgiving, let your request be made to God.
Pro. 24:6b, And in a multitude of counselors there is safety.
James 1:5, If you need wisdom, if you want to know what God wants you to do ask him, ask and he will gladly tell you. NLT
The Lord woke me up early this morning and just spoke to my heart to call to pray. This is what I felt the Holy Spirit say, Bring the prayer request to before the people. Paul had ask me to pray concerning a move he has been praying for sense he became pastor of Victory Life. Is this the time for him to quit his job with Luthern Servics. He said he felt he was not giving quality time folks at Victory, quality times in pray or quality time in the Word. He has just felt everyone and everything has suffered because of his lack of time. He really need the body at Victory to pray about this. He needs assurance and a knowing of what is saying to him and Rachel. As you know there fifth child Rachel Grace is due July 4th. Rachel Grace even might be early the doctor tells us. Also, at this time Victory is unable to bring his salary up to what it needs to be. This would be a great step of faith for Paul and Rachel. We know all things are possible with God. So we call to pray. Thank you for your faithfulness to Victory and to us. We love you. We bless you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
