Time is short, there is less than two weeks left on the #Christmas #countdown.  And we are on our second of three messages leading up to the anniversary of the Savior’s birth.  Today we hear the story of Mary, a virgin girl chosen by God to deliver the long awaited Messiah.  Typical of the way God works, the events would not unfold the way anybody who knew the prophecies expected.  Interesting fact, the Bible mentions that Mary visited her cousin Elizabeth when Elizabeth was six months into her own pregnancy with John the Baptist.  An ob/gyn friend of mine said that this is the point in a pregnancy when mothers first feel movement of their child.  To what extent do we or should we revere Mary?  What are some of the extra-biblical ideas being taught about her?  What does the Bible say about her?  Mary was favored by God, did that make her life easier?  When presented with overwhelming news about her future, what was Mary’s perfect answer?

Let’s kick off a series of December messages by Brother Tommy from 2001.  Even back then, he was lamenting the #waronChristmas.  This week, he talks about Joseph.  And in the following weeks, we will cover Mary and Jesus.  Can you think of one Christmas song about Joseph?  What role did Joseph play in the birth and life of Jesus?  What was his background and lineage?  What can we assume abut his faith from this test he went through?  What can we learn about how to treat others by watching Joseph’s treatment of Mary?  What can we learn from his faith in God?

“Who cares” is a comment I have heard from some individuals or those who do not even care about themselves!  As I observe today’s society I see the  #internet, #television, #entertainment, and yes, #politics all revolving around the same theme – “Me, Me, Me”  These speeches sound like utopia; however, one size does not fit all.  Everyone of us wants to feel that someone cares about our existence .  Present population is so involved with the moment of instant gratification that they find it difficult to see beyond their own nose.  They might donate to a go fund me account which may or may not be legitimate, but do not speak to the person next to them.  Look around you  Do you know or see a person who cares about you and others?  I see caring individuals who proclaim Jesus Christ as their Savior and portray Him through an example of walking in His way.  The Bible tells us how much GOD cares for us individually yet we possess many different personalities, temperaments, abilities, disabilities and circumstantial needs!  When we ask GOD not the latest gadget to direct our life, He will deliver with a care package filled with grace.  Now is the time to take all your concerns and give them to the Lord.  “Casting all your care upon Him, for THE LIVING GOD CARES FOR YOU” 1Peter5:7     Right now “GOD CARES”
