Bro. George opened to Math. 2:1-8, “The Grinch Who Tried to Steal Christmas”. As we begin, we see Herod learning of Jesus’ birth. This man was a bitter ruler who eliminated anyone in who posed a threat to his reign, including hid family, his wife, and his own son. He hated people and goodness. He was troubled by his possessions and used his power and resources to fuel his paranoia. He feared the loss of power and when he heard of the birth, he called in wise men to find the child but not worship but to eliminate. He thought he could foil God’s plan. Why is it that we think we can foil God’s plans? Satan been trying it daily, we try it. We have to give it all to God and have faith. Don’t be a ‘getter’ but a ‘giver’.
We are to give our hearts to Jesus and our homes to him. We must live for him, not for ourselves. This is great time for year. Don’t let our ways spoil God’s desire.
