I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

"GOD WANTS TO USE YOU" BY DAVID MCMILLEN

WE ALWAYS HEAR, AROUND CHRISTMAS TIME, THAT JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON AND HE IS.  HOWEVER, HE IS THE REASON FOR EVERY SEASON.  I NEVER GET TIRED OF READING ABOUT MARY AND JOSEPH, ESPECIALLY GETTING THIS CLOSE TO CHRISTMAS.  I THOUGHT I WOULD WRITE MY MESSAGE ABOUT THEM THIS MORNING.  I KNOW IT IS A LITTLE EARLY BUT PLEASE INDULGE AND OLD MAN.












CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT IT MUST HAVE BEEN LIKE WHEN GABRIEL, THIS BIG, POWERFUL ANGEL, CAME TO MARY AND TOLD HER SHE WAS GOING TO HAVE A CHILD BY HOLY SPIRIT AND HE WOULD BE THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD?  JUST HEARING THAT SHE WAS GOING TO HAVE A CHILD BY HOLY SPIRIT MUST HAVE BEEN A REAL SHOCK BUT THEN HE SAID THAT THE CHILD WAS GOING TO BE THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD.  WOW!!! 

 

IT IS BELIEVED THAT MARY WAS ONLY BETWEEN 12 AND 14 YEARS OLD.  SHE HAD TO BE A VERY SPECIAL YOUNG GIRL FOR GOD TO CHOOSE HER AND FOR HER TO OBEY HIM.  JOSEPH HAD TO BE A VERY SPECIAL YOUNG MAN AS WELL.  HOW MANY BOYS, THESE DAYS, WOULD HAVE TAKEN ON THIS RESPONSIBILITY, EVEN IF IT WAS GOD TELLING HIM TO DO IT.  ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT I AM SURE GLAD THEY STEPPED UP AND OBEYED GOD.



YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE REAL SMART OR WEALTHY TO BE USED BY GOD.  YOU JUST HAVE TO BE AVAILABLE LIKE THESE TWO KIDS WERE.  BEING THAT YOUNG, I AM SURE THEY HAD LITTLE EDUCATION AND PROBABLY NOT MUCH MONEY.  ACCORDING TO THE LAW, SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO BRING A LAMB, YOUNG PIGEON OR A TURTLEDOVE FOR A SIN OFFERING WHEN THEY WENT TO THE TEMPLE.  THE BIBLE SAYS SHE BOUGHT TWO TURTLEDOVES BUT I THINK SHE WOULD HAVE BOUGHT A LAMB IF SHE COULD HAVE AFFORDED IT.  THIS IS JUST WHAT I BELIEVE.



MY QUESTION TO ALL OF YOU YOUNG PEOPLE, AND ALSO TO SOME OF YOU OLDER ONES, ARE YOU READY IF GOD ASKED YOU TO STEP UP AND DO SOMETHING FOR HIM?  THERE ARE SO MANY CHRISTIANS ASKING GOD TO USE THEM WHEN THEY ARE NOT EVEN READY TO BE USED OR IT IS NOT WHAT THEY WANT GOD TO USE THEM FOR.  THEIR PRAYER SHOULD BE FOR GOD TO MAKE THEM USABLE FOR ANYTHING HE WANTS THEM TO DO.



MY POINT TO THIS MESSAGE IS TO BE READY WHEN GOD CALLS YOU AND DON'T BE AFRAID OF WHAT THE TASK MIGHT BE.  HE WILL NEVER GIVE US MORE THAN WE CAN HANDLE.  JUST TRUST HIM.



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
