One of my favorite things is giving and receiving Christmas Cards, this year after praying about what verse I would add to those I was giving, I found myself thinking about Stars, yes Jesus’ Star that the Wise Men followed and also other Stars that Shine and Sparkle in the night but there was even more, my thoughts kept returning to us Shining in the darkness of this World. A friend gave me a packet of Christmas Cards that she thought I may like to use and once again they confirmed this message, as did some Blogs and Websites I visited last week.
I than found some Scripture that not only confirmed this Truth again for me but also mentioned something else that is very important , the verses I found are below and I included one of them in my Christmas Cards and also a Sparkling Star or a bookmark that has the word Sparkle on it and yes it Shines and Sparkles too and so do we when Jesus is within us!
Daniel 12:3 And they that be Wise shall Shine as the brightness of the firmament and they that turn many to Righteousness as the Stars for ever and ever (KJV)
Matthew 13:43 Then shall the Righteous Shine forth as the Sun in the Kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. (KJV)
Philippians 2:15-16 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons (daughters) of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse Nation, among whom ye Shine as Lights in the World; Holding forth the Word of Life. (KJV)
Matthew 5:15-16 Neither do men light a Candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a Candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your Light so Shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in Heaven. (KJV)
This Christmas and Always we wish you all the illuminating Light of Jesus’ Truth so that you will overflow with His deep inner Love, Hope, Joy and Peace.
Christ -Mass Blessings from both of us – Anne.
