In Christ Jesus I Am

Romans 8:1-4 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

I just came back from a restful and relaxing vacation cruise to the Mexican Riviera, where I saw some beautiful beaches and seas, met wonderful people, made great new friends, and had some quality time to reflect on life and Christ in this Christmas season. I found this picture explaining so much of what we become in Christ and it both energizes me and humbles me at the same time to think about the gift of God to us in Christ Jesus. Love, joy and peace at not something you can buy, but experience in our relationship with our Heavenly Father God daily and forever. Merry is what Christmas is because of our Lord.   

Philippians 4:6-7 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Merry Christmas. 
In Christ, Brian
