Quiet Time with Jesus – The BEST Gift

Thursday, 10 December 2015

Fifteen more days to Christmas … I wonder how Mary felt at that time – fifteen days before her baby was born - was she excited? Was she anxious?

Fifteen more days to Christmas … I wonder how Christians feel right now.

Fifteen more days to Christmas … I wonder how non-Christians feel …

Before I became a Christian, I celebrated Christmas. I went shopping to choose the ‘best’ gifts for my friends and colleagues. I wasn’t thinking about Jesus.

After I became a Christian, I celebrate Christmas. I go shopping but the emphasis of buying the ‘best’ gift is no longer in my heart. The best gift cannot be bought with money. 

The BEST gift is JESUS Himself.

How can I give JESUS as a gift to my friends?

 

 

My Prayer

Dear Father God,

The Bible tells us: The LORD saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The LORD was GRIEVED that He made man on the earth, and His heart was filled with PAIN. (Genesis 6:5-6)

Father, when we sin, we do not only break a law, we also break YOUR HEART.

Father, I pray that all men (and women, boys and girls) know that we need not fear to expose our hearts to YOU for the approach to God has been made easy through JESUS CHRIST. Jesus came into the world for that very purpose – to enable us to find forgiveness for our sin.

Let us ask for forgiveness WHOLEHEARTEDLY.

The Bible tells us: If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:8-9)

Father, You are the same yesterday, today and forever. Your Word is Truth.

Jesus, You are the Way, the Truth and the Life. I believe in You. Amen.


Song
With All I Am - Hillsong

Into Your hands I commit again; With all I am, for You Lord; You hold my world in the palm of Your hands; And I am Yours forever.

Jesus, I believe in You; Jesus I belong to You; You’re the reason that I live; The reason that I sing; With all I am.

I walk with You; Wherever You will go; Through tears and joy, I’ll trust in You; And I will live in all of Your ways; And Your promises, forever.

I will worship; I will worship You …
Amen.

To Whom It May Concern

If you believe in Jesus, sing with me.

Lam Yee Ling

Not my will but Yours be done. Amen.
