And just what is the intention of Christmas? Pastor Andoy (as what we fondly call Rev. Docena) emphasized that “it is to introduce God’s Government to mankind in order to bring people to a higher quality of life.” Once more, we were reminded that God sent His one and only Son for a reason.
This Christmas, let us focus on what really matters. Let us worship Him in spirit and in truth. Let us proclaim His power and never give up. Let us trust His rule by submitting to it.
Isaiah 9:6-7 (NIV)
6 For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the LORD Almighty
will accomplish this.
