He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

What Jesus Wants For Christmas

A friend of mine told me that while they were looking at Christmas lights her five year old said, " Momma, Jesus doesn't want toys. He wants us"....

perfectly said... I pray that not only do i remember this, but I pray as well that many of my neighbors will be set FREE by this remarkable truth....

Have a Merry Christmas friends!
John 17:4-Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am

Luke 9:25 -"What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self?"

"What Jesus wants most for Christmas is that his elect be gathered in and then get what they want most - to see his glory and then savor it with the very savoring of the Father for the Son"- John Piper
