One thought on “Your Story…

  1. Jim & Dee Dee says:

    Cheryl, Three years ago this week Dee Dee was halfway through a grueling 24 weeks of chemotherapy to treat breast cancer. It was such a dark and terrible time for both of us and Christmas was approaching. I was sending email updates to a list of prayerful family and friends regarding her progress so you and Pastor Mike will probably recall this greeting of Christmas past that is to follow. The comfort and joy of that Christmas three years ago was just what you might expect the Great Physician to order for us and we remember the peace that He poured into our hearts during such a troubling time in our lives! Last Friday, Dee Dee had another six month checkup with her oncologist and her lab work was entirely a good report. We should be getting good “cancer numbers” this week to complete the report on the latest checkup. That’s what we want most for Christmas this year. I’ll let you know what we find out. Jim

    “Wherefore, I will not be negligent to put you in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and are established in the present truth. Yea, I think it fitting, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance…” 2Peter 1:12-13

    Hello folks,

    Perhaps today each of us can say that we have heard the story of Jesus’ birth every Christmas season all of our lives. And perhaps we know the story by heart, and we understand its meaning and we know all that His birth implies. But though we may know these things, and though we are established in this present truth, it is important that we are always in remembrance of these things. When we put ourselves in remembrance of the Lord’s birth, we “stir up” one another spiritually and we encourage one another in the Lord. In the Old Testament, we find that throughout his life, David would “encourage himself in the Lord his God.” He would encourage himself in the Lord by acknowledging his relationship with the Lord, and by recognizing all the benefits of that relationship. At Christmas, we encourage one another in the Lord by putting ourselves in remembrance of Jesus’ birth. Christ’s birth culminated in the redemptive events which make it possible for all of us to “find favor” with God. All the great and precious promises of God belong to us now by faith.

    “The promises of God in Him are YES AND AMEN.”

    The Scriptures proclaim that God purposed to appropriate that inheritance to us in Christ Jesus before the world began! So the Apostle Paul taught the church at Corinth that (now in Christ)

    “God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.”

    Indeed, the story of Jesus’ birth has been told from generation to generation for 2,000 years. But if the Father determines to withhold our Savior’s return for another 2,000 years, the story will continue to be told until He comes. The Christmas story is as eternal as the One about Whom it was written. And today, Dee Dee and I are grateful that God in His mercy has preserved us another year so that we might share Christmas with you all one more time. Life is good and our God is good.

    Merry Christmas to all and a happy new year!

    Jim & Dee Dee
