Today, I want to share something very simple… yet, it has changed the way I think and pray. It built my faith tremendously and helped me through some devastating times.
First, you need to understand something right off the bat: This is not your typical holiday message. But I AM going to talk about Jesus and WILL refer to the greatest book on success ever written – the Bible. Bottom line, I have my beliefs and they may not be the same as yours, but that’s okay! Just please keep an open mind, because what I’m sharing with you will help you… and not just during the “Christmas season,” but through every single day of your life.
Whether you believe Jesus was born in the fall, winter, spring or summer is your choice. Different people have different beliefs and that’s perfectly fine! The most important thing for us to understand revolves less around when He was born and more about who Jesus is, why He was born and why it matters to you today.
In the first summary of Jesus’ conception and birth, it says, “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which translated means, ‘God with us.'”
I’m sure you’ve heard this before – probably several times. But what does that mean for you… for your job, your business, your family, your finances, your community?
It’s not just a story we read once a year on December 25th. I’m telling you, once you grasp the significance of this name, this specific character trait of God, it will change everything for you – just as it has for me.
