ARCHPASTORAL NATIVITY MESSAGE
Christ is born! Glorify Him!
Greetings to you on the occasion of the Nativity of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
My desire now is to speak faith into your lives, encouraging you not to be discouraged but to assure you that with the coming Lord your best days are ahead.
I want very much this Nativity message to be filled with hope, intended to do just that. My prayer also is to inspire you and expand your vision so you might find the courage to overcome any obstacles and accomplish your dreams.
With His coming the Only-begotten Son of God assures us that He has great things in store for us. A new hope is coming to ignite our faith that He loves us and as Emmanuel He is always with us (Matthew 1:23).
Christ is born to amaze us with His goodness! We learn that we do not have to seek blessings. We don’t have to seek the right people or seek material things. If you seek Christ; if you put Him first and honor Him with your life; the blessings will seek you, when you live a life of integrity, when you have a spirit of excellence, giving, serving, and treating people right, Christ’s blessings will chase you down and overtake you. The Holy Scripture says in Psalm 36:4: “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.”
May the Young Child give you strength not only to fortify your faith, but also to inspire and to help see that He is born to work in your life. He walks with you. With Him in your heart you will persevere and prevail. It is time now to believe that you are one of our Father’s children.
Therefore, as you read this message, keep yourself pure, strive for excellence and prepare yourself because it’s your time for God’s goodness and restoration. It’s your time to walk in the fullness of His blessings.
Have a wonderful Nativity of Christ and Happy New 2013 Year!
+ Metropolitan Joseph
