This is the Second Day of Christmas 2021
Eucharistic Readings for the First Sunday after Christmas Day
“But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God” (John 1:12)
(Edited and republished from Sunday, December 29, 2019)
That’s what I want to be, “Child of God.” I believe I am a child of God already. I just don’t think I fully understand the power of believing. I believe, not just in God, but also in God’s heavenly realm where saints dwell in light everlasting. Such a place includes Nicholas, Bishop of Myra. Therefore, I believe in Santa Claus and that Santa Claus still lives. Such a place also includes Saints John (both the Baptist and the Evangelist), Saint Paul, Saint Peter, Saints Mary, (mother of Jesus), and Mary Magdalene, (servant of our Lord), and many other saints who have gone before. I too am a servant of our Lord. The power of faith or belief is a Christmas gift from God. Thank You Lord Jesus.
It is an extraordinary gift we have, to believe in God. All Christians should live into what we believe about the love of God. Merry Christmas: Day 2
Our being saved has as much to do with the birth of Jesus as it does with his Resurrection from the dead. Merry Christmas: Day 1
Let us hear what the Spirit is saying to and through the saints of God and then ponder anew what the Almighty can do. John
