“Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise him in the heights!
Praise him, all his angels, praise him, all his host!
Praise him sun and moon;
Praise him, all you shining stars! Praise him, you highest heavens, and you waters above the heavens!” – Psalm 148:1-4
The festival of Christmas is celebrated all over the world with great pomp & show. 2000 years back Jesus was born as Good-News to mankind. The main purpose of his birth into the world is to wipe away the sins of all, to give peace and everlasting life to his people whom he loves so much. The angel of Lord appeared to Joseph and said “She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, for he will, save his people from their sins” (Mathew 1:21).
Today Jesus is standing at the doors of our hearts and seeking place to be born. If our doors are closed with worldly celebrations, then it is sure that we have no knowledge of the “Holy Bible”. This is possible only if we hear his word and treasure them in our hearts like Mother Mary. “But Mary treasured all the words and pondered them in her heart” (Luke 2:19)
In the old testament God has spoken about his mercy to Abraham, Moses and many other prophets. “Because the Lord your God is merciful God. He will neither abandon you nor destroy you, he will not forget the covenant with your ancestors that he swore to them” ( Deut 4:31). Now at end times God is speaking about his mercy through his son Jesus. Jesus is a merciful God. His love for humankind is so much that he wishes no one should escape from his merciful love. Jesus never desires to punish sinners, but he is willing to heal them through his mercy. “He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from destruction” (Psalm 107:20)
Never in your life you will be lonely.
When you have Jesus with thee,
You will never ever fall weak,
Solely upon him when you lean.
In sorrow you will suffer no pain,
Because with you your comforter is always there,
Where Jesus has established his throne,
There is peace and joy in abound.
Always rejoice in the Lord ,
Because faithful is your God.
He will never fail you, in your times of hard.
You will never hide in shame because of your faults.
He lifts up those who trust in him.
Jesus wants us to surrender and stand still.
Than he will carry our burden and give us relief.
He will fight for us and we will never fall in defeat.

Heavenly Father how great is your mercy!
How mighty and marvellous are your deeds!
Who can grasp the depts of your wisdom!
Who can surpass the love you have for your children!
For us gentiles you hardened the heart of your own people.
We are no one, but your grace towards us was unconditional,
You saved us, the impure and unholy nation.
We are unworthy but through your Son you made us worthy for your kingdom.
Through Christ’s sacrifice all the barriers are broken.
In Christ alone we are one body one people.
Christ only is our head and not any denomination.
Through the blood of Christ we have become right with our Father.
So my dear friends, why are we still standing apart?
The time is gone when we were not of God.
Now for the sake of Christ’s sacrifice let us become one.
Leave all indifferences behind and let’s work together for God.
