How do we carry Christmas with us every day? Christmas celebrates the gift of Christian healing that Jesus Christ brought to humanity. You may be thinking, “that was great for people living two thousand years ago, but it doesn’t help me today.” Fortunately for us, however, the Christ presence is right here, right now. The Christ is empowering us to stand up to resistance in our lives, be it a physical challenge, a relationship issue, a financial burden, or career trouble.
The apostle Paul talks about the empowering presence of the Christ in his letter to the Philippians where he writes “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” (Phil. 4:13). In the same way that Paul was strengthened through Christ, the Christ strengthens us each day. Christ is right next to us, speaking to us, showing us how to banish limited thoughts that would hold us back. When we listen to these Christ messages we open the door of thought to God’s unending goodness. This is how we can experience the gift of Christian healing and carry Christmas with us each day.
This past Christmas Eve international speaker Evan Mehlenbacher and singer/songwriter Cherie Brennan joined us here at Third Church in celebration of this magnificent gift. We are truly blessed to have the evening captured on video. This video is now online for all to see here on our homepage. The video includes songs from Cherie’s uplifting program featuring an original song written especially for this Christmas Eve titled “Where have you gone.” Cherie’s music imparts the true spirit of Christmas and underscores the message of Evan’s talk. Following the music, Evan speaks about how the healing that Jesus and his disciples accomplished was not limited to their time on earth. He gives real life examples of how the power of the Christ gives us a practical means of healing today.
