**Peace to all,
this is the season when we all prepare ourselves to welcome Christ again in our lives and hearts and minds. To be worthy, we must cleanse our hearts and minds .:**:gopray:
Let’s us remember His words in the most beautiful Sermon of the Mount :bible1: :
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you (falsely) because of me.
“You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot”
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.”
" Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father."
" if you bring your gift to the altar, and there recall that your brother has anything against you,
leave your gift there at the altar, go first and be reconciled with your brother, and then come and offer your gift."**
**We are all humans and we are all guilty of being sinful, of not being the “light and salt” of this world (one time or the other).
In light of this coming Christmas, i pray that we all hold each others’ hands and pray for those who persecute us, offer apologies to those we hurt for whatever reason, and pray for the King of Peace that He brings peace to this miserable earth. He told us that we are not people of this world, so let’s pray that He gives us the strenghth to show that we are His people, not people of this world, and the power to be the light and salt of the World as He wants us to be**.:gopray2:
Please offer you sincere wishes and prayers or apologies on this thread from today till the Christmas day and we’ll offer all our prayers and apologies to the Lord on Christmas Eve.
Let this thread be our common gift from CAF to our Lord.
