He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth, Luke 1:14
Prayers and blessings receive. I greet you in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus The Christ. May this letter reach you in the best of health and happiness, rejoicing in the blessings bestowed upon us by our Holy and Merciful God.
As we approach this wonderful season of reconciliation, we must reflect upon the great principal of LOVE. This love of God that led Him to sacrifice His only begotten son and reconcile us to Him, because by our own fault we became distant from Him. He overlooked our inequities, was merciful towards our weaknesses, and focused only on the reunification of His creation; hence
God the word became flesh.
Our focus this season must not be on Christmas parties, gifts, lights and trees. All of these must symbolize a purpose beyond what we perceive. As we celebrate at gatherings, we must remember the true reason of our celebration. As we exchange gifts, we must think of the real gift given to us in Jesus our Savior. As we put up our Christmas trees, let us explain to our children the evergreen that represents life received through Him who came to us. And as we turn on our lights for Christmas, we should kneel and pray that His light shines through our every act and thought – may our acts and thoughts reflect God. Let us also brush all of our weaknesses aside and reconcile with one another in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
May the Lord bless you in all that you do and may He continue to watch over us all. I wish you and yours a joyous Christmas and a Happy New Year.
In His Service,
Cor-Bishop Father George Bet Rasho
