Merry Christmas!
 

In the aftermath of September 11, numerous and conflicting thoughts clamor for our attention at Christmas. But, praise God, this is also a time when the quiet and calming voice of our Creator and Savior reassures us, urging us to consider His priorities . . . urging us to a life of holiness that will both restore His church and impact our nation and world. In this regard, it would be good to remind ourselves of the following:

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God" (John 1:1). "All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men" (John 1:3,4). ". . . (He) made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father" (Philippians 2:7-11). "Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works" (Titus 2:14). ". . . serv(ing) Him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our life" (Luke 1:74-75).

All of us here at ICR thank God for each of you who make it possible for us to proclaim this message. The love expressed through your prayers, gifts, and encouraging words are a sweet aroma to the Lord even as they are His provision for our every need (Philippians 4:18).

May each of us be encouraged unto good works in godliness until He comes!

Merry Christmas!
