Good day everyone. Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say Rejoice. Here is a chunk of scripture that dropped into my spirit as I was thinking about testimonies. In the meal today we will see that as a follower of Christ, people will perceive you and expect you to be something that you’re not. We will pray before we eat.

Today’s Prayer

Father, You have given us so much! What can we give You? All that we really have to give You is our attention, and all You really want from us is our complete attention. Lord, help us to want to abide in You and to want You to abide in us at all times. Let Your Holy Spirit touch and empower us, quicken our desire for You, strengthen our faith and dwell within us. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Let’s eat.

The Testimony of John the Baptist

John 1:19-28

  This was John’s testimony when the Jewish leaders sent priests and Temple assistants from Jerusalem to ask John, “Who are you?” He came right out and said, “I am not the Messiah.” “Well then, who are you?” they asked. “Are you Elijah?” “No,” he replied. “Are you the Prophet we are expecting?” “No.” “Then who are you? We need an answer for those who sent us. What do you have to say about yourself?” John replied in the words of the prophet Isaiah: “I am a voice shouting in the wilderness, ‘Clear the way for the Lord’s coming!’” Then the Pharisees who had been sent asked him, “If you aren’t the Messiah or Elijah or the Prophet, what right do you have to baptize?” John told them, “I baptize with water, but right here in the crowd is someone you do not recognize. Though his ministry follows mine, I’m not even worthy to be his slave and untie the straps of his sandal.” This encounter took place in Bethany, an area east of the Jordan River, where John was baptizing.

Quote of the Day

I think that the true meaning of Christmas is about possibility. It is not the kind of possibility that comes from a confidence in our own skill, knowledge, ability, or a positive mental attitude. It is possibility that comes solely from the fact that God is God, and that he is the kind of God who comes into our own human existence to reveal himself and call us to himself.
