A Charlie Brown Christmas

December 24, 2017

Greetings,

Linus said:

“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.  And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.  And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.  And this shall be a sign unto you; ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, and good will toward men.  Luke 2: 8-14

I don’t believe anyone could say it any better than Linus!

Love and Christmas blessings to all……

Kirk Out !

p.s.  Here is something to pray about and ponder during the Holidays…..  Please notice how the angel was all inclusive when he spoke of the coming of Christ….  The good tidings of great joy were to ALL people and not an exclusive elite few.  The arrival of Jesus brought peace and good will toward ALL mankind.  The cult of Christianity over the years has made Jesus very small and exclusive….. the truth is that Jesus is much larger and inclusive than we can even imagine.  Christ’s birth, life, death and resurrection bridged the great chasm between all “men” and God.  In Christ we are all restored.  It is now time to walk in that truth and share the love, truth, grace and mercy of Jesus with whosoever will.

    And maybe I’ll underscore your PS. It does indeed say His coming was GOOD NEWS and good news for ALL people. That really is pretty inclusive, isn’t it? Funny the angel didn’t tell those rough and rowdy shepherds, “the Saviour is here and you BETTER accept Him OR ELSE…..”. Just that it was good news and would bring peace on earth and good will. Sure has been a long time coming but the patience you spoke of in your last blog certainly has come into play as He patiently waits for the ‘all’ to get it. Still being deeply touched at the thought of all this. Love, “BK”

  3. I have to honestly say that in all the scriptures, these are my favorite.. each and everytime that I read them, I cry.. with great joy because He didnt just come to give me such love, He did not come just for those who see, hear His voice… He came for All…. All, mankind.. to offer unto them that which HE has given unto me.. And one of the most wonderous things besides Him just BEING…. is that when HE looks upon each and everyone of us, He doesnt see what we see.. HE sees His beloved… how freeing is that in and amongst its self… Thanks Babe for sharing the hearlding Shout of hope and freedom for ALL…

    His live, mercy, and grace are beyond what we can fathom…..and so undeserving we are….but he lived….and waits patiently….may we do the same through the power of his spirit within us.
