It was love, mere love; it was free love that brought the Lord Jesus Christ into our world. What, shall we not remember the birth of our Jesus? Shall we yearly celebrate the birth of our temporal king, and shall that of the King of Kings be quite forgotten? Shall that only, which ought to be had chiefly in remembrance, be quite forgotten? God forbid!

No, my dear brethren, let us celebrate and keep this festival of our church with joy in our hearts: let the birth of a Redeemer, which redeemed us from sin, from wrath, from death, from hell, be always remembered; may this Savior’s love never be forgotten! But may we sing forth all his love and glory as long as life shall last here, and through an endless eternity in the world above! May we chant forth the wonders of redeeming love and the riches of free grace, amidst angels and archangels, cherubim and seraphim, without intermission, forever and ever!

And as, my brethren, the time for keeping this festival is approaching, let us consider our duty in the true observation thereof, of the right way for the glory of God, and the good of immortal souls, to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ; an event which ought to be had in eternal remembrance.

Looking towards Christmas

Christmas is the season of hope and promise.

  • Jesus is seen throughout the Old and New Testaments.
  • Jesus is in the Old Testament predicted.
  • Jesus is in the gospels revealed.
  • Jesus is in the Acts preached.
  • Jesus is in the epistles (letters) explained.
  • Jesus is in the Revelation expected.

In the coming weeks as we prepare for Christmas and search the scriptures for what they tell about the coming Christ, we will see that much was promised and we have a great hope in Jesus, the Christ.

Thy Word is Truth! Thy Word is Light
Undimmed by cloud or age:
Thy Son of Love–clear, spotless, bright–
Gilds every glowing page.

Thy Word is Truth! ‘Tis here Thy grace
Shines forth amid the night:
A star to guide our wandering race,
By faith, to perfect sight.

Thy Word is Truth! Men come and go;
Age follows mortal youth;
Thy Word, Thyself, no change can know,
Both are Eternal Truth.

Kinneret

Some things in Israel never change, but also continue to amaze and instruct. One such place is Lake Kinneret. You may know it as the Sea of Galilee or Lake Tiberias.

The lake is the lowest fresh water lake in the world. It is 13 miles long and 8 and ½ miles wide at the widest point. It is small when compared to many lakes around the world. Despite its small size, the lake is at no loss for visitors.

Lake Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) was the hub around which Yeshua (Jesus of Nazareth) taught and ministered during his ministry. Mostly he traveled around the north and west side. Many of the stories found in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John took place on or near the lake.

While I was originally drawn to the lake for the usual reasons pilgrims are, I am drawn back now but the beauty and mystery of the lake. I love to photograph it because the views are rarely the same. The lake changes with the rising and setting of the sun. It changes with the fog and mist that lay across its surface as well.

I offer you, the lake . . .

O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water. Psalm 63:1

I rise to greet You when the dew still soaks the Spring flowers.
The lush forest of your presence awaits me.
An alcove of lush green trees in the secret forest is my morning time with You.

Cool breezes, earthy fragrance, warm sunshine greet me as I walk toward You, arms open wide, anticipating Your embrace, Your Word spoken over me–my hope, my comfort, my strength, my teacher, my love.

Abba! Abba!
Good morning!
Blessings to You, my Father God–Creator–Redeemer–Almighty One–Precious Protector–High Tower–Imanuel–El Shaddai–Adonai Tz’avot–I am yours! You are mine.

Forever is ours, my eternal love!
