Chaplain’s Column: Jesus Comes To Us
As the Christmas season approaches I have found myself thinking about How Jesus came to earth and the way he started His ministry. Jesus came in a manger for you and for me. He willingly left the glories and riches of heaven to be born in a stable. He took the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men (Philippians 2:7).
Jesus became poor so that we might become rich. He lived a life of such abject poverty that when He had to pay taxes, He had to look for a coin in a fish’s mouth (Mathew 17: 24-27). When He sent out His disciples, He told them to take nothing but a staff and the power of the Holy Spirit (Mark 6:7-9). He was put to death like a common criminal so that we could wear a royal robe!
Child of God, you are rich! I am rich! Praise God! I would encourage each of you to read Philippians 2:6-11 with your family or friends today as a Christmas devotional. Spend time praising God for His Son, Jesus.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas. It has been a blessed year for the Dragoons.
Please pray for the following:
1. James Little's wife Nita
2. David Brantley's wife Jennifer
3. John Durden's son (David Fail) TIA
4. JJ Oakley
5. James Whittington - Back surgery, pain and needs to return to job
6. Harry Rawlinson - Long-time Dragoon member is recovering from a heart attack.
Yours In Christ,
