The Christmas season is a time of celebration—a gathering of family, friends, and loved ones for fellowship, food, and fun. However, many times, as we prepare for the holidays, we can become so wrapped up in buying gifts, catching the best sales at the department stores, and accommodating family and friends, who have traveled from out of town, that we lose sight of the real centerpiece of Christmas—Jesus. Moreover, His entrance onto the world stage would prove to be the greatest move of God in the history of mankind. Jesus’ birth ushered in a new covenant, one that would be ratified in His shed blood 33 years later. We must never forget what Jesus has accomplished for us, and Christmas is the perfect time for us to focus on what an awesome gift He is to us.
The blood of Jesus is something the Lord has begun to give me more and more revelation about, and it is my prayer that this Christmas you will also spend some quality time meditating on it for yourself. It is through the blood of Jesus that we have been redeemed from the curse of sin, sickness, poverty, and spiritual oppression. This is why Jesus came to Earth. He has set us free from every hindering force of the enemy. His blood gives us the right to be cleansed of our sins, and come into the Father’s presence without guilt, fear, or condemnation. We are brought into right standing with God through and by the blood of Jesus. I have come to realize that a Christmas celebration without the acknowledgement of what the blood has accomplished for us is simply incomplete.
This issue of CHANGE magazine is geared toward focusing on the importance of keeping the spirit of Christmas throughout the year, as well as shedding light on the blood of Jesus so you can understand how vital it is to your walk as a Christian. Taffi deals with an issue that is also critical to our effectiveness as Believers in her article “Coming Out of Your Comfort Zone.” We are called to be light in the midst of a dark world, and we must be willing to step out of the box in order to reach those who need us most. With the power of the blood backing us up, we simply can’t lose.
Jesus Christ is coming back soon, and it is Taffi and my desire that you experience the fullness of life that He has designed for you. Now, more than ever, we must trust God and make His Word our absolute final authority. We encourage you to spend time reading and meditating on the Scriptures like never before. Feed your faith and starve any doubt that may be present in your life. Study the blood of Jesus and use it as a weapon against the enemy.
Taffi and I love you and pray for you daily. We hope this Christmas is your best one ever and that the blessing of God rests on your household like never before. As a part of God’s family, you have a blood-bought right to everything the Word promises.
