In behalf of Pastor James Reyes and Sis. Jojo Jose, we would like to wish everyone a blessed Christmas.
As we gather around our family and friends in this day – the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, may we be reminded of the true spirit of this day.Â This month in our tele-conference, we have discussed the essence of Christmas, the challenges of Christmas, and the perspective and message of Christmas.
As Christians, let us be sensitive to the needs of the people around us.Â Christmas season is one of thoseÂ period in the year where loneliness, illness, andÂ financial challenges are magnified and prevalent.Â Â Let us become the vessel of Christ’s light in the lives of other people.Â
My wife and children are on vacation in the Philippines and I can relate with those people who may be experiencing loneliness at this time.Â I’ll be honest with all of you, it’s tough especially when you have a closely knit family like I have.Â I am taking my own advice that I have shared with everyoneÂ – spend a quiet moment with the Lord in prayer and be in fellowship with a brother or sister in the Lord.Â Shift your focus a couple of degrees, and don’t focus on yourself.Â Look around.Â Be thankful in His goodness and graciousness to us.Â
In the coming days, I will share with you some development in our internet ministry.Â I hope and pray that the Good Lord will continue to bless this ministry and become a source of God’s Light to others.Â This is the reason why I have to be in ‘isolation’ this Christmas.Â It’s God’s way of getting me on focus.
Merry Christmas to All!
