Good morning.


"Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious" (Zechariah 9:9)


This is the promise we remember at Christmas time. On that first Christmas, God brought “His righteousness” to earth in the person of Jesus Christ. This is exactly what the world needed (and still needs).


The birth of Jesus initiated a divine exchange that was brought to fruition with His death on the cross. "God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." (2 Corinthians 5:21)


God’s love for us is not based on anything we do or do not do. It’s based only on what Jesus has already done. Romans 5:8 says, "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)


The Righteous One was born on Christmas to show us God’s love in the most powerful way possible, by making us righteous in His sight.


Because of this, we have the assurance that God is with us. "Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel." (Isaiah 7:14)


This is the reason we worship Him. Have a wonderful Sunday.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
