During this beautiful time of Advent: we have been preparing our hearts with tenderness waiting to receive the greatest gift ever given to all humans. The gift of love, where God becomes human for you and me but let’s be real, we hear this year after year and we can’t experience this love… until we are transformed by God himself!
As Christians, as believers in Christ, we should really move on from discussing whether I should say Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays. We should let the birth of Christ transform our lives in such a way that others identify you as a Christian, as a believer from the way you treat others, the way you speak; carry yourself in everything you do.
So let’s make this Christmas a bit different and special. Let’s be transformed by the Word who became man and it’s wanting a deeper relationship with all of us.
Let your encounter with Christ transform you
Emerge in His grace in every Mass! In the Eucharist, we all have the opportunity to be with the same Jesus that came more than 2,000 years ago to dwell amongst us. In that Eucharist, we receive the grace and mission to go out living the Good News of Jesus to all peoples in all places.
Live out the transformation He has done your life
Once something is transformed, it looks and feels different. And that’s exactly how we need to experience transformation. Letting your actions speak more than your words because something that we have good as Christians is that we have lots of words everywhere but less of a vivid testimony.
Acknowledge you are always in need of the power of transformation of Christ in your life
When you recognize you are in need of Christ in your life that is POWERFUL!!! NO MATTER HOW MANY YEARS YOU HAVE BEEN WALKING IN THE FAITH, you always need to recognize that you need Him – always let yourselves be amazed by His power of transformation.
Let’s welcome Jesus into our lives this Christmas by opening our hearts to Him.
“Everything comes from love, all is ordained for the salvation of man, God does nothing without this goal in mind.” –St. Catherine of Siena
May you have a blessed Christmas!
