DISCOVERING THE CHRIST OF CHRISTMAS

DISCOVERING THE CHRIST OF CHRISTMAS   From our Soul Winner monthly Newsletter 

Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ by Christians all over the world. The first celebration of Christmas was in Rome in 336 A.D. Today Christmas has become the most popular event of the Christian religion.
It is celebrated every 25th December of every year. Christ is the centre of Christmas. All look foward to this celebration. It is a period of joy and happiness.

Individual disposition of Christmas can change, but the fundamental issue in this celebration is that we rejoice because a Savoiur has been been born to us.
Majority of Christians today has abandoned the substance and are busy pursuing shadows, no wonder Christmas today is marked with many activities like; celebration of marriages/weddings, coronations, reunion of all kinds, funeral ceremonies, organization of fun faires, Christian revival programs, etc.


In the face of these, one discovers that the main object of celebration here, which is CHRIST, has been religated to the background. And one begins to wonder if most of my fellow Christians are still aware of the personality of the person of Christ being celebrated. This brings to mind this topic, “Discovering the Christ of Christmas.”

It is expected that as we remember the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ, we ought to look at His  personality and try as much as we can to live it out. Space will not permit me to exhaust the personality of Christ, but permit me to share a few vital lines on the Son of God whom we celebrate at Christmas.

John 1:14 says, He is the Word that was made flesh and dwelt among us.

Matthew 16:16 says, He is the Son of the living God.

He is the Lord of lords and King of kings. Revelation 17:14

He is the anointed One Psalm 45:7; Acts 4:27
The One who came to save us from sin and reconciled man back to God with His blood shed on the cross. Therefore His blood cleans us from all sins.1John 1:7

He is the One who ascended into heaven and is at the right hand of God. Angels, authorites and powers are made subject unto Him. 1 Peter 3:22

He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

The coming of Christ brought joy to the world. No wonder the wise men from the east came with their gifts seaching for Him. When they discovered Him, they adored Him and offered Him their gifts.

Just like the wise men from the east, for us to discover the Christ of Christmas, we must go in search of Him. Remember the wise men discovered Him in the Manger not in the palace. Christ should be discovered in the life of the poor in the society at this period. Christ must be found among the orphans, widows, the physically challenged ones among us, through giving them joy by almsgiving (in our benevolence ).

As Christians, we should make up our minds to search for Jesus by being attentive to the church programmes at Christmas period; having fellowship among fellow believers as we return to our various villages for Christmas celebration.
A visit to chapel is also very important during this period.

To discover the Christ of the Christmas, we must leave our comfort zones and be ready to deprive ourselves abit. We mustn’t attend all the parties during this period. Some attention should be given to visitation to the old, weak, and the sick within our localities.

It may interest you to note that at Christmas just as the wisemen who gave gifts to Christ and went home happily through another road, one is also expected to offer gifts to Christ through his/her neigbours and should be happy doing so and not expecting any reward.
We must give our lives to Christ and be led in the Spirit in any of our actions.

Herod searched but didn’t discover Jesus because his intention is not genuine. A sincere desire to discover Christ will really take you to Him. We need to trust God and His words and His testimont around us.

The Christ of Christmas, as the Bible says, went about doing good. And He is still in the business of doing good.
We should at this season imitate our master in doing good. Let anything that is good and honorable be seen around us His followers.

Friends in Christ, as we appraoch, yet another Christmas, may God help us to celebrate truely Christ on Earth by being like our Master Himself.
God bless you.

Sr. Okaja Celestina U.
(Teacher of God’s Word CCRN)

GOD’S INFALLIBLE WORD- WRITTEN FOR US (PART 1)

THE HOLY BIBLE-GOD’S INFALLIBLE WORD- WRITTEN FOR US

Introduction

This article will specifically focus on God’s Infallible Word, The Holy Bible also called Scripture. Basically on the threefold dimension of the word.

  1. The written Word (Graphe)
  2. The spoken or living Word (Logos)
  3. The Word from the Spirit (Remah)

What is the Holy Bible?

The Holy Bible is a collection of books of sacred texts or scriptures that Jews and Christians consider to be a product of divine inspiration and a record of the relationship between God and humans.
-Wikipedia

Reference to the Holy Bible

The Bible has many names given to it due to its nature and accomplishments

  • The Holy Book
  • The Book
  • Scripture
  • Covenant Book
  • Book of the law
  • Book of life
  • Manual of humankind
  • Heaven’s rule Book
  • Library of books
  • The Eternal Book
  • The Book of Divine teachings

“Bible” derives from the Greek term for “books” and refers to the OT (Old Testament) and NT (New Testament).
The 39 OT books and 27 NT books form the “canon” of Holy Scripture.
“Canon” originally meant “reed” and came to signify a ruler or measuring stick. In this sense the Bible is the rule or standard of authority for Christians.
The concept of “canon” and process of “canonization” refers to when the books gained the status of “Holy Scripture,” authoritative standard for faith and practice.
-Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary

The Holy Bible is God’s revelation of Himself to mankind. And bears the record of relationship between and God and humans.
As God created us for a relationship, He fashioned out His numerous ways to commune with us. And one of them is His written word- Graphe (the Holy Bible)

THE ORIGINAL LANGUAGE OF THE BIBLE

The Bible was first written in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. It has come into our modern languages through translation. The Bible’s message is so important that has been translated into 3,312 languages. No other book has been translated more widely. And the trend continues.

THE WRITING OF THE BIBLE

The Bible was written over 1500 years by 40 different men chosen by God. Though they lived at different period of time in history, at different locations, in different family backgrounds, bore different names, yet as their writings or scrolls were collected and bound together in one book, called the Holy Bible, it is found that their stories, reports or messages followed a very successive trend as if they sat together to write it all.
Each of their writing is unmistakably and intentionally pointing towards one singular supreme being, the one who repeatedly says, “I am God! Besides me there is no other.” “I made the heavens and earth.” Etc.

Not only that God claimed to be who He says He is, but He has backed it up with evidence, signs and wonders. History justifies that His claim is true. You are also a witness to His mighty works. Aren’t you?

Are you not amazed at how the Bible was written by 40 different authors, and yet it maintained such a harmony and agreement.
Each author’s work makes reference or points to another author’s work though they never knew themselves at the time. Some authors have already died while others were inspired to write their books. Yet, there is harmony and agreement in their writings.
There is no contradiction among the writers. That’s a strong indisputable prove that God presided over it all. They never wrote down their own words but the words they heard from the mouth of God and from the Holy Spirit.
