A thought to ponder. Two gifts that money cannot buy. People are forever trying to achieve yet these two Gifts (of the Holy Divine Kind are priceless).Given by God Himself.
Entwined – JOY and Peace.
These Gifts of God when watered and and nurtured by the Holy Spirit should come forth as FRUITS. (In the life of a Believer) They are to be shared with others.
When hard times come and life is difficult Joy and Peace are inner STRENGTHS when a relationship with Jesus Christ is an actuality.
They are not about ‘feelings’ they are about an INNER DYNAMIC certainty.
2 Cor. 8:2 gives a great thought-provoking reading about a group of people who in the midst of afflictions, and poverty SHOWED evidence among them of an ABUNDANCE OF JOY.
JOY TO THE WORLD!
At the birth of Jesus Christ. Why? Into the world was born the Saviour of the eternal souls of all of mankind.
JOY and PEACE indeed are the sacred Gifts we can look forward to at Christmas Time. (not to be given but to be REMINDED ABOUT).
You will hear again the statement PEACE TO THE WORLD. (There is only bloodshed and chaos, media and voices will say). Who has PEACE?.
Only the ones who have accepted the GIFT.
JESUS HIMSELF IS THE PRINCE OF PEACE.
In Him alone is found entwined PEACE and JOY.
Know what you have this day and freely share with others as the fruits rise in your lives as remembrance of the Christmas Gift is refreshed in celebrations.
P E A C E and J OY to you.
(Know what you have been given!)
Penned with Divine LOVE in my heart.
Your post is a lovely catalyst to harvest the fruits He has given to us!!
