A King is Born

Photobucket Jupiter next to the moon Christmas night.

Matthew 2:2
Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

Merry Christmas

Photobucket A break in the clouds on a short hike Friday 21-Dec-2012 added a little color to this photo. I was plowing snow for the 2nd day. Snow was still sticking to the side of the trees and I enjoyed walking through the fresh snow of the woods.

Job 38:22
“Have you entered the storehouses of the snow, Or have you seen the storehouses of the hail,

God makes the snow. And He gives life and light.  Just as I seek solace from hiking in the woods so I seek renewal from God's word.

Job 16:5

“I could strengthen you with my mouth, And the solace of my lips could lessen your pain.

Missouri River Jetty

Hiking along the Missouri river Saturday I noticed the sandbar down stream from this jetty. The jetty pushes the flowing water out into the center of the river and the water down stream from the jetty moves slower than the water in the main channel.

Water is able to carry material as it moves and the faster it moves the more material it carries. When the water slows down its ability to carry debris decreases causing the deposit of sand just south of the jetty 

In life with Christ we are able to do things for Him as we move with Him. The more we are in Christ the more we can carry things for Him or the more we can do for Him. Our ability to serve Christ deminishes if we don't spend time with Him. 

2 Cor 1:20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us."
This verse shows the Bible promises work as we are with Christ. So this Christmas season let us go to Jesus for He came to give us life and ability.
