2 Corinthians 13:5 (KJV)

With the start of a brand new year, many folks are evaluating their lives and resolving to make improvements for 2016.  This evaluation is a healthy process if one is truly honest with themselves.  Whether these improvements are associated with diet, exercise, or setting a budget; this type evaluation can lead to improvements that can be life changing. 

The Bible does teach us to examine ourselves, but in a little different way than looking at things from a physical viewpoint.  According to 2 Corinthians 13:5 we are to, "Examine ourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves.  Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?"   This single verse challenges us all to look within ourselves and to make sure Jesus Christ is abiding in our hearts in lives.  Another verse found in 2 Peter 1:10 says, "Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure:  for if you do these things, ye shall never fall."

I pray this week your New Year's resolutions start with the spiritual side of life and that you all will have a safe and Happy New Year!

Isaiah 7:14 (KJV)

Isaiah 7:14 states, “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, And shall call his name Immanuel.”  People seem to have more trouble believing in the virgin birth than any other part of the Christmas story, but it is an essential part of God’s perfect plan of redemption for all mankind. 

The sin nature has been passed down to all people from generation to generation because of the disobedience of Adam and Eve in the garden when God told them not to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil or they would spiritually die.  Romans 5:12 states, “Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned.” 

Scripture teaches that Jesus was fully human, with a physical body like ours, which he received from Mary. At the same time, Jesus was fully God, with an eternal, sinless nature.  We read in John 1:14, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” 

Jesus was not born as a normal man with the “Sin Nature” already in his heart and soul.  Hebrews 7:26  states, “For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens.”  The Virgin Birth circumvented the transmission of the sin nature and allowed the eternal God to become a perfect man.  As stated in Romans 5:17, “ For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.” and Romans 5:19, “For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.”

When God comes into our hearts, and we are sanctified, his spirit allows us to take on the sinless nature of God.  We become the true children of God.  In Romans 8:17 it states, “And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ;”  This was the Purpose of Jesus Christ and why the Virgin birth was so important.

Luke 2: 10-11 (KJV)

"And the angel said until them, Fear not:  for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."  Luke 2:10-11 (KJV)

Psalm 106:1 (KJV)

There are many things God brings to our lives when we decide to love and serve Him.  One is a "thankful" heart.  This sense of gratitude is what brings satisfaction and peace.  It is what makes a house a home, a meal a feast, and a stranger a friend.  God is pleased with the spirit of thankfulness!

Psalm 106:1 states, "Praise ye the Lord. O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever."

Ephesians 5:20 (KJV)

I love this time of year!  It is a time set aside to reflect and be thankful for how much we are richly blessed.  Counting our blessings is truly a way to stay positive and realize how much Jesus Christ loves us.  He is a wonderful and merciful Savior!

"Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."  Ephesians 5:20 (KJV)
