“Merry Christmas to all of you on this Monday. I trust it’ll be a wonderful day of family and friends, or wherever you find yourself. And I want to say Merry Christmas to each and every friend. Thank you for being a friend to this ministry.

We find ourselves today in the Christmas story in Luke 2:16, and these shepherds were there, and these angels were there. And the Bible says they came with haste, these shepherds, and found Mary and Joseph and the babe lying in a manger. Can you imagine what that must have been? Just shepherds out in the fields, normal people, working people, caring for their animals, and they came to the place they were instructed and they found the Savior. They came with haste.

When we look at the Word of God and when we look for help for a day, don’t hesitate this year, this day, the remainder of this last week of the year, and as we move into 2024. Don’t hesitate. “Well tomorrow, well next week, well next month, well next year, well next decade, well eventually I’m gonna get to that.” Don’t do things with haste. When the Spirit of God prompts you, when he prompts me, immediately always say yes.

And today, as we think about this Christmas Day 2023, I hope it’s gonna be the very best day of your life. And I’ll also suggest that what you do, you do with haste, except one thing, kids. When you open those presents, you try to open them real slowly so you can save the paper for the next 10 years and rewrap it.

Have a Merry Christmas. God bless you.”
