Pondering for Tuesday, January 4, 2022

Today is the Eleventh Day of Christmas

Daily Office Readings for January 4th: Year 2

Morning, Psalm 85 and 87; Evening, Psalm 136;

Joshua 3:14 to 4:7;  Ephesians 5:1 to 20;  John 9:1 to 12 and 35 to 38:

“As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”  (John 9: 5)

The Gospel of John opens with words explaining that Jesus, the Logos of God, He is the Word of God and the Light of the world.  This light is more than just visual illumination.  The light of Christ is a moral plumb line into right behavior; a plumb line by which we can adjust ourselves. It is as the Christmas song says, being good for goodness sake.

Let us strive to maintain the light of Christ in the world all year long. Merry Christmas: Day 11

Let us always listen, learn, love and lead with the mind of Christ. Merry Christmas: Day 10

I pray that we too may come to the realization that we should not have any pride in our so-called racial make-up, but be happy and thankful for being children of God. Merry Christmas: Day 9

May your Christened name be blessed forever.  Merry Christmas; Day 8

We thank you Lord Jesus for being born like us, for us, and saving us.  Merry Christmas: Day 7

If being forgiven is the greatest gift we can ever receive from someone, then it is also the greatest gift we can ever give to someone. Merry Christmas: Day 6

It is an extraordinary gift we have, to believe. All Christians need to live into what we believe.  Merry Christmas: Day 5

We are never to hurt or harm children, only help them, teach them, save and love them. This is what Christmas is all about. Merry Christmas: Day 4

The testimony of John the apostle about our Lord Jesus is true; Believe.  Merry Christmas: Day 3

Let us not take our hate or ill will for another with us to our mortal death.  Merry Christmas: Day 2

Our being saved has as much to do with the birth of Jesus as it does his Resurrection from the dead.  Merry Christmas: Day 1

As we listen to what the Spirit is saying to us, let us live to love, to serve, and to teach, while pondering anew what the Almighty can do. John
