Christmas Praises 13

Zechariah 9:9

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

During the month of December I have asked some members and friends of our church to write a paragraph or so describing some of the things that bring them joy this Christmas season in their relationship with Jesus and First Church? They were asked where they see Jesus in their church family? They were asked what draws them to First Church. The reason for this is to stir up some joy and excitement this Christmas Season. I told them I would share their thoughts anonymously – but I am keeping their e-mails for sure. I will try to post a comment a day for December so obviously I need 31 comments. The posts will go up around noon each day.

Dear Rev. Ray, This is my paragraph describing things just lately. My relationship with my church family means so very much to me. All of my brothers and sisters from church have been so kind to me, helping me with food and wonderful prayers during my times of illness. Rev. Ray, our dear sweet Jesus is in our church family and in you. I have been so very ill but God is with me, and my Church family. Thank you.

I praise the Lord for the testimony. I hope that it brings those who read it great joy. Merry Christmas to one and all.
