Christmas Begins With Christ

It doesn't matter whether or not December 25 is the actual birth date of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

It doesn't matter which or what type of manger he was laid in.

Nor does it matter where is the exact location of the inn or the type and construction of the stable where they stayed.

In other words, the particulars don't matter to God and neither should they matter to us.

It matters that we grow in understanding and appreciation of just what our Lord & Savior has done for us.

It matters that we learn to love and respect Our Heavenly Father, who loved us so much that he sent Jesus as the sacrificial Lamb.

The Christmas season is because of Jesus Christ, who is at the right hand of Our Father even now, praying and interceding for us till the end of time. 

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Priscilla Shirer Praises Jesus Christ


So many are ecstatic when they think they have finagled another way to God through some far-fetched ideas or obscure opinions but it can't be done.

We know that:

Jesus Christ is the only way to God,

The Only Door,

The Alpha and The Omega,

The First and The Last,

The Beginning and The End,

The Resurrection and The Life.

Let's praise him with American author, motivational speaker, actress, and Christian evangelist Priscilla Shirer! You may know that she is the daughter of Tony Evans and sister of Anthony Evans.

He Cares For You

Jesus has truly suffered it all.
Turn To Jesus, The Lover Of Your Soul

No matter what it is, you know that Jesus understands. He who suffered everything that you have and will suffer offers comfort in a way that no one else can.  Though he may not have experienced what you have in the way that you did, he has truly suffered it all.

He suffered it for you.
In his divine spirit and in his human heart and emotions, he experienced all of human horror. It is in the spirit and heart of man where the roots of true suffering are for all outer suffering. Jesus truly suffered it all for all mankind in the way that only God can. He suffered it all for you. He does know what you are feeling and why.

He did it for love, a special kind of holy love.
Jesus felt it all in a few moments of time, when he took into his human body all of the hurt, terror, depression, fear, discouragement, anxiety, hopelessness, rage and despair for each and every human who has lived, is alive today and who will come into this world. He did it for your soul. He did it for love, a special kind of holy love. Just tell him about it.

Talk to Jesus and remember that it is our Father God who raised him from the dead.

Poetry: God And Son As One


How hard it must have been

For you to know, Lord,

That you are the Light of the World,

And to walk among hatred and blindness.

How hard it must have been

For you to live under

Being harassed and hated,

And to walk among

That determination to murder.


But you were determined

To enforce God's will.

Your Father, who gave you up

To a vicious world of dark haters,

Lived the horrific sacrifice through

And with you.

No Doubt Jesus Is Alive!


Honoring Jesus Christ Of Nazareth Today
For He Is Most Certainly Alive
Happy Easter from Draw Nigh To Hope
  He Arose & He Is Without A Doubt Alive!
God loved us so much that he sent Jesus to die for us.
Happy Easter!
This is the day that Jesus arose!
We celebrate his obedience to the Father
and love for us!
He was obedient to the cross.
He was separated from his Father for a period in time,
all for our salvation.

We remember his selfless act
and how he submitted,
because his Father
asked him to.

It was all for us. 
For God so loved us 
that he sacrificed His Only Son,
so that whoever believes on Him
should have everlasting life.

I hope your Easter
is full of joy and peace
that will carry throughout the
rest of your life here on this earth.

Remembering Jesus' Palm Sunday Journey

Happy Palm Sunday!
Happy Palm Sunday!
We remember Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem.
We remember that today represents the day that Jesus Christ of Nazareth made his humble but triumphant entry into Jerusalem.
Jesus on the donkey is a beloved Christian icon.

He rode upon a donkey as he made his journey in.
I wonder what led to him sitting on that donkey.
Did he allow the throngs of people to put him on the donkey because that is how they wanted to honor him?

Was he simply weary from a long, hot, dusty journey and in danger of collapsing? Whatever the reason, Jesus on the donkey is one of the many revered icons of Christianity. It symbols victory!
Hosanna, blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!

Christian icons in themselves don't possess any power and we don't idolize them. Like the Cross, they are beloved touch-points for our great love for our Savior and all that he stands for.
We honor Jesus' obedience.
Today we remember with joy that Jesus was obedient to the Father. He was strengthened and determined as he journeyed towards that inevitable suffering that we remember with sorrowful joy.

Jesus Christ gave his life for our salvation.
 We thank you, Dear Lord Jesus, for your obedience.
Help us to be obedient always to Our Father God.

How To Take Communion In Faith

I was reading I Corinthians 11:23-34 this morning and taking Communion. I began to think about the burdens that Christians put on each other about the Eucharist. The scriptures 27-33 seem to some to mean that we must go over, recount and acknowledge our sins before we can take part in the Lord's Supper. While it can be helpful to clear our minds of ill will, we can't ensure, through a few quick thoughts, that we are perfect.

In verses 28-29 we are encouraged to discern the Lord's body as we take Communion. We are to perceive that Christ's sacrifice on the Cross cleansed us from unrighteousness. We are to recognize that He is at the right hand of the Father always intervening on our behalf. When we remember, at the time of Communion, that the Blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth is able to cover our transgressions, past, present and future, we have discerned the Lord's body. These are thoughts that we should enjoy daily.

We can read the Bible daily and pray with sincerity so that the cleansing power of prayer and the transformational power of the Word is continually converting us. This will help us to exist in a state of discerning the body of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Take Communion with faith. Don't be afraid.

Happy Good Friday! Honoring Jesus Christ Of Nazareth

Happy Good Friday From Draw Nigh To Hope
Jesus is Lord!

Honoring Jesus Christ On Good Friday

Honoring our Savior Jesus Christ's obedience
as he went faithfully to the cross.
All done for each one of us,
for the joy to come.
Jesus Christ Is Worthy To Be Praised On Good Friday And Everyday
If you are a single Christian who is believing God for a Christian spouse, remember that Jesus was obedient to his hurt and for the joy that was coming. In the same way, we should be willing to sacrifice for that special person whom God has designated for each of us, as they should be willing to do for us.

Thank you Dear Lord for your sacrifice and your Holy example.
