THE SERVANT GENERAL
CHRISTMAS MESSAGE 2017
GOD IS WITH US
the virgin shall be with child and bear a son,
and they shall name him Emmanuel”
God is with us! The Word has become flesh! Jesus, the Son
of God, became man and walked the earth. Even today Jesus
continues to walk with us through his Spirit. And he will
return, to judge the nations.
whole lives revolve on Jesus. Or ought to. Unfortunately for
many, such is not the case. Many nations, even the so-called
Christian ones, are dominated by Herods who seek to destroy
Jesus and what he stands for. The darkness, already dispelled
by the star at Jesus’ birth, is growing deeper.
this is precisely why Jesus came into the world. He is Savior
and Lord. He brings us salvation. He brings us peace. He unites
us under his headship.
we rejoice and celebrate his birth. We thank God for the coming
of Jesus into our lives, making all the difference for us
and our families. We look at the Christ child, united with
Mary and Joseph as the Holy Family. We look at the magi and
the shepherds, rich and poor united in homage to the King.
We hear the heavenly host singing, uniting the heavens and
the earth in their praises to God.
us strive to always focus on Jesus in our lives, to have him
at the center of our families and homes, and to proclaim him
to the whole world.
Merry Christmas to you and all your loved ones. God bless
