iLoVeIt... Christmas!!!

Christmas is about the celebration of the birth of Jesus. We celebrate Christ's life because He came to die in our place and take the punishment that we rightly deserve for our sins in action and in our heart. We were born in sin and even before we know right from wrong we've already sinned. God saw that there was no one who by works or righteousness could enter the Kingdom of Heaven so He provided a means and a way. God is the only deity who ever sacrificed Himself for His followers and people who curse and hate Him. Jesus is the only Savior who comes to us as a friend. No one else has been so self-sacrificing, loving and righteous nor will there ever be another.

 Christmas is about the love of a God who cares about little old you and me to send His own Son to give the world to give us a chance to be with Him and make a way for direct communication between ourselves and Himself. When we accept the gift of Jesus' life, death and resurrection on Earth with repentance of our sins we accept a second life with Christ, a personal gift from God.


Isaiah 59:1-20

Sin, Confession and Redemption
 1 Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save,
   nor his ear too dull to hear.
2 But your iniquities have separated
   you from your God;
your sins have hidden his face from you,
   so that he will not hear.
3 For your hands are stained with blood,
   your fingers with guilt.
Your lips have spoken falsely,
   and your tongue mutters wicked things.
4 No one calls for justice;
   no one pleads a case with integrity.
They rely on empty arguments, they utter lies;
   they conceive trouble and give birth to evil.
5 They hatch the eggs of vipers
   and spin a spider’s web.
Whoever eats their eggs will die,
   and when one is broken, an adder is hatched.
6 Their cobwebs are useless for clothing;
   they cannot cover themselves with what they make.
Their deeds are evil deeds,
   and acts of violence are in their hands.
7 Their feet rush into sin;
   they are swift to shed innocent blood.
They pursue evil schemes;
   acts of violence mark their ways.
8 The way of peace they do not know;
   there is no justice in their paths.
They have turned them into crooked roads;
   no one who walks along them will know peace. 9 So justice is far from us,
   and righteousness does not reach us.
We look for light, but all is darkness;
   for brightness, but we walk in deep shadows.
10 Like the blind we grope along the wall,
   feeling our way like people without eyes.
At midday we stumble as if it were twilight;
   among the strong, we are like the dead.
11 We all growl like bears;
   we moan mournfully like doves.
We look for justice, but find none;
   for deliverance, but it is far away.
 12 For our offenses are many in your sight,
   and our sins testify against us.
Our offenses are ever with us,
   and we acknowledge our iniquities:
13 rebellion and treachery against the LORD,
   turning our backs on our God,
inciting revolt and oppression,
   uttering lies our hearts have conceived.
14 So justice is driven back,
   and righteousness stands at a distance;
truth has stumbled in the streets,
   honesty cannot enter.
15 Truth is nowhere to be found,
   and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey.
   The LORD looked and was displeased
   that there was no justice.
16 He saw that there was no one,
   he was appalled that there was no one to intervene;
so his own arm achieved salvation for him,
   and his own righteousness sustained him.
17 He put on righteousness as his breastplate,
   and the helmet of salvation on his head;
he put on the garments of vengeance
   and wrapped himself in zeal as in a cloak.
18 According to what they have done,
   so will he repay
wrath to his enemies
   and retribution to his foes;
   he will repay the islands their due.
19 From the west, people will fear the name of the LORD,
   and from the rising of the sun, they will revere his glory.
For he will come like a pent-up flood
   that the breath of the LORD drives along.[a]
 20 “The Redeemer will come to Zion,
   to those in Jacob who repent of their sins,”
            declares the LORD.



 Lyrics:
Jesus I am broken now
Before you I fall I lay me down
All I want is you, my all

I cry out from the ashes
Burned with sin and shame
I ask you Lord to make me whole again

For you say if I will come and will
Pray to you
There's forgiveness when I
Turn from me and pray
For you say if I will come and will
Pray to you
You hear me and heal me when I pray

Your ways are not my own
But I long for them to be
So this what I pray
One with you you'll make me

Melt me away 'til only you remain

For you say if I will come and will
Pray to you
There's forgiveness when I
Turn to you and pray
For you say if I will come and will
Pray to you
You hear me and heal me when I pray

Jesus I am broken now before you
Take me I am yours
