Did Jesus gatecrash your last Christmas Party?

Dear Loved Ones,

As you know, may Birthday is Celebrated on Christmas Day. This is the same every year, the Celebration is in my honor.

During the time before the Celebration many people are shopping for gifts, there are radio announcements, TV commercials and in every part of the World everyone is talking about my Birthday as it gets closer and closer.

It is really very nice to know that at least once a year some people think of me.

As you know, the Celebration of my Birthday began many years ago as my Disciples and those who followed me like The Heavenly Host rejoiced in my earthly Birth.

At first people seemed to understand and be Thankful of all that I did for them but in these current times not many seem to know the reason for the Celebration.

Family and friends get together and have a lot of fun but they don’t know the real reason why they are Celebrating. I remember that each year there is a great feast in my honor. The dinner table is full of delicious foods, pastries, fruits, assorted nuts and chocolates. The decorations are exquisite and there are always many beautifully wrapped gifts.

But do you want to know something? I’m not always Invited.

I am the Guest of Honor and many don’t remember to send me an Invitation.

The Party is for me but when that great day comes I’m left outside, they close the door in my face and this saddens me because I want to be with them and share their table.

In Truth this doesn’t surprise me because in the last few years many close their doors to me. Since I’m not Invited, I decided to enter the Party last year without making any noise. I went in and stood in a corner.

They were all drinking; there were some who were drunk and telling off color jokes and laughing at everything. They were having a grand time.

To top it all this big fat man all dressed in red wearing a long white beard entered the room yelling Ho-Ho-Ho! He sat on the sofa and all the Children ran to him, saying: “Santa Claus, Santa Claus” as if the Party were in his honor!

During the Party people began to hug each other; I extended my arms waiting for someone to hug me but do you know… no-one hugged me, they didn’t even notice me, especially in their hearts.

Then they all began to share gifts. They opened them one by one with great expectation. When all had been opened, I looked to see if maybe there was one for me. What would you feel if on your Birthday everybody shared gifts and you did not get one? or they did what they wanted to do instead of considering your wishes.

I then understood that I was unwanted at that Party and quietly left.

Every year it gets worse. Most people only remember the gifts, the Parties, to eat and drink and not many remember me.

I would like for this Christmas that you allow me to enter into your life your heart is a gift that I will Treasure and it will give me great pleasure to be your Friend because I Love you and always have.

I would like you to recognize the fact that over two thousand years ago I came to this World to give my Life for you and on the Cross, I knew your Name and took your shame, I came to save you and to set you free from the control of Sin so you would no longer be in bondage but sadly many still choose to be.

John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the Truth everyone who Sins is a slave to Sin. Now a Slave has no permanent place in the family but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free you will be free indeed.

1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to Sin because God’s seed remains in him, he cannot go on Sinning because he has been Born of God.

Today, I want that you believe with all your Heart that you have been set free, repent and come Close to me and I will come Close to you, please don’t keep me at a distance, it hurts to be apart from you.

I want to share something with you. We will have our own Celebration, a Grandiose Party that no one has ever imagined, a Spectacular Spiritual Party. I’ve made all the arrangements for you and we are waiting on your reply so you can join us.

heavenlyToday I am sending out many Invitations and there is an Invitation for you. I want to know if you wish to attend and I have made a reservation for you so you can come and I have written your Name with golden letters in my Great Guest Book but you still need to reply so you can enjoy the Celebration.

Only those on the Guest List are Invited to the Party.

Those who don’t accept my Invitation will be left outside and this will grieve me greatly, so be prepared because I want you to be part of our Wonderful Party.

See you soon… I Love you and always will – Jesus Christ

    This post is such a good reminder as it is so easy to get caught up with the world’s view of Christmas. Jesus’ Christmas is much simpler and much richer as love is freely given and received. Thanks Anne!

    • Yes that’s very True Debbie and it was not that Jesus was not given gifts that hurt Him but knowing they had excluded Him because their hearts were cold or just as bad, lukewarm.

      Debbie I was just wondering, what would you give Jesus for Christmas?

        To answer your question on what I would give Jesus… well, we can’t outgive Him! My list of what to give Jesus is the same for every day of the year. 1) More time with Him. Busyness is such a huge distraction from being still and present with Jesus. 2) The recesses of my heart. There are areas of my life where I know that I have not fully surrendered everything to Jesus. 3) Joy shared with others. I think that as we share our love of Jesus with others- and not necessarily evangelizing- that it is a gift to the person and to Jesus! So Annie, what would be your top 3 gifts to Jesus? (What a great question to ponder!)

        • I would give Jesus the same as you have Debbie…..

          1. My time unconditionally to help and encourage others who are facing hard times in their lives.
          2. I would offer my Love to others Sacrificially without thought of reward.
          3. I would be a Friend to those who need Love and Support regardless of who they are or where they live.

          Matthew 25 : 31 -40 When the Son of man shall come in His glory and all the Holy Angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the Throne of His glory. And before Him shall be gathered all Nations and He shall separate them one from another as a Shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats. And He shall set the sheep on His right hand but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on His right hand; Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was an hungred and ye gave me meat, I was thirsty and ye gave me drink, I was a stranger and ye took me in. Naked, and ye clothed me, I was sick and ye visited me, I was in Prison and ye came unto me. Then shall the Righteous answer Him saying; Lord when saw we thee an hungred and fed thee? or thirsty and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger and took thee in? or naked and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick or in prison and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren ye have done it unto me.

          Philippians 2:2-4 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vain glory but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things but every man also on the things of others.

          Hebrews 10 24-25 And let us consider one another in order to stir up Love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together as is the manner of some but exhorting one another and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.

          Christian Love and Blessings – Annie.

    • Good News, I will visit you soon Debbie, I was writing to you last night and we had a black out , it was late so I went to bed. It was not a good day, in the Morning I had another accident, thankfully I’m OK this time but my Mobility Scooter is badly damaged which will make things difficult over Christmas, unless it can be repaired before, I would value your Prayers.

      Blessings – Annie.

        Of course… prayers! John 16:33 – “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” The trouble in this world can take on many forms, but the peace from God is the same: overwhelming, ever-lasting, and settling deep! Annie, we know that your peace is not broken!

        • Thank you Debbie and yes it is very True that in this world we do have trouble but God gives us the Strength to endure what ever Satan or life brings to us.

          God bless you greatly my dear Blogging friend for your faithfulness to care for others and to show it in your Loving words and actions. Thank you for Praying for me and for Ron.

          We have a friend who needs Prayer Debbie, he is disabled like me but his faith is young and he has doubts and fears, your Prayers for him would be greatly valued.

            Thinking of your friend, this Scripture passage is a wonderful prayer! Ephesians 3:16-19 – “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” (It really is a good prayer for all of us!) Love to you!

            • Yes it is indeed a Powerful Prayer Debbie, it shows our need to be Perfected in Love which we like Paul shared are to aim for so we will be filled with all the fullness of God.

              Philippians 3:12-14 Not that I have already obtained all this or have already been made Perfect but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me Heavenward in Christ Jesus.

              2 Timothy 4:7-8 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the Faith. Now there is in store for me the Crown of Righteousness, which The Lord, The Righteous Judge will award to me on that day and not only to me but also to all who have longed for His appearing.

              1John 4:17-19 Herein is our Love made Perfect that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is so are we in this World. There is no fear in Love but Perfect Love casteth out fear because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made Perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us.

              Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ let us go on unto Perfection not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of Faith toward God,

              Well it’s not long now till Christmas Morning Debbie, yes a day to remember in our hearts all year as you shared recently. We give Thanks to God for the times of refreshing we have shared Blogging together and I Thank you for your Loving and caring heart.

              Much Love and Blessings – Anne
