Your Word for 17 May 2024

John 15:4
‘Remain in Me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in Me.’

Celebrate the Reason for the Season
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given. Isaiah 9:6
The question as to whether Christmas is real or not, is based on whether we believe that a child was born and that this prophesy was, in fact, fulfilled.
Some time back I was watching some of the documentary channels on TV. A program came on about the life of Jesus. The narrator made that following comment: He said: ‘The greatest attested fact of ancient history was Jesus Christ!’ I have never forgotten this statement.
But is it true?  Is it true or is it just fable, legend and tradition?The wonder of Christmas is that we can believe with all our hearts that this is true. That God became flesh, the flesh of a human child and came to live among humanity.
