As the new year unfolds, all of us want our year to be “happier” than the previous one. Based on Scriptural advice, here are three keys to help you experience a happier new year:
Jesus, God, the One and Only, Love Came Down at Christmas
Jesus is the Hope of Christmas, the Peace of Christmas, and the Joy of Christmas. But when God sent His only Son into the world, Jesus, as God, the One and Only, love came down at Christmas for you and me. Join me as we offer this simple prayer of praise to the One whose love exceeds all others, the Love of Christmas, or offer your own praise prayer as you celebrate Jesus, God, the One and Only.
Jesus, Our Savior, The Joy of Christmas
We’ve talked about Jesus as the Hope of Christmas and the Peace of Christmas. But today, let’s take a closer look at Jesus our Savior, the Joy of Christmas. Because the Christmas story is so familiar to most of us, it’s easy for us to lose its wonder and mystery. Sometimes I forget there are millions who have still never heard or believed the true Christmas message of joy that our Savior brings. As you think about what that name means, Savior, let this prayer resonate with you. Listen to the truths, and then pray your own prayer to Him.
Jesus, the Prince of Peace, The Peace of Christmas
At this time of year and at all times, our hearts long for peace. What a joy to celebrate Jesus, the Prince of Peace, the true Peace of Christmas. As you think about what that name means, The Prince of Peace, let this prayer conversation with God resonate with you. Listen to the truths, and then pray your own prayer to Him.
Immanuel, God with Us, The Hope of Christmas
As the Christmas season begins, our hearts always turn to the Hope of Christmas: Immanuel, God with Us. How we need His hope today! As we think about what those words mean again–Immanuel, God with Us–maybe you can imagine this prayer conversation with God. Listen to the truths, and then pray your own prayer to Him.
