No doubt about it. Mexico, the USA and every other part of the world. Christmas is the most important holiday around the globe. Something different is taking place this year. A new beginning, with a sense of direction and purpose overflows our generation because of the new born King.

As I reflect on what this baby King has done and is doing, I am totally amazed of His present Kingdom and future Kingdom. Like never before the future is here. The birth of Jesus of Nazareth unleashes the reality that resides within us. We don't have to wait for the future. Our future is within us. There is no other place, person or event to look for, except the arrival of the Messiah arising within our essence, our core, our very being.

As we launched our new conversation series, "Savior," we ignited a fresh perception of Christmas for our world today. We looked at Jeremiah 33:3 "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know." Wow! How kool is that? You have to remembered that every other major religion or belief system always has a hidden agenda, requirement or a list of unrealistic rules to fulfill before you can access the power from their god, diet, etc.

That's not the God of the Bible. All you have to do is call and He will answer you. Isn't this "answer" what Christmas is all about? Except, in Christmas time, He didn't give an answer to the people who called on Him. Instead, He became the Answer. Emmanuel, God with us. When God becomes the answer, instead of giving an answer that answer can go in two different ways. For some reason, with my very little experience of life and God, I get the feeling that anytime God shows up, or becomes the answer things get complicated. Have you noticed it?

God is an expert on changing the status quo, the norm, the expected, the accepted. God is a revolutionary God. He is a creative God, thus Christmas is all about the creation of a future that may not reflect what you were looking for at the beginning of your prayer or request.

As a result, God becoming the answer will require Faith from our side. Faith to believe that "great and unsearchable things you do not know," are coming your way. Maybe Christmas is all about God with us, as a result, the unexpected is on its way. http://www.advancedministry.com/sites/index.cfm?i=6841&mid=18
