Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

“And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women”(Lk 1:28).

Jesus was growing in Mary and when she manifested Jesus, what a blessing she became! “From henceforth all generations shall call me blessed” (Lk 1:48). From the day you manifest Christ to the world, generations are going to bless you.

When Jesus was manifested, while Herod and the people were being greatly troubled, the heavenly host was rejoicing with great joy. When Christ is manifested through us there will be great rejoicing among the saints, but the devil and his emissaries will tremble.

Shepherds came to see the baby Jesus. When we manifest Jesus through our life many ‘shepherds’ will come. Many servants of God will arise; many will be inspired to step out to serve God—to save souls and nurture them into Christlikeness.

When Christ was manifested many wise men came from far. Precious souls will come to us from faraway places. They will not come with empty hands. They will open their treasures. If the wise men came all that way and found only Joseph and Mary, they would not have opened their treasures. How richly we will be blessed when we show Jesus to the world!

People are not interested in seeing us, or in knowing about our greatness. People want to see Jesus. “Sir, we would see Jesus” (Jn 12:21). This is the cry of the people everywhere. But are we able to help them? How often we show our selfish nature, our quarrelling, complaining, etc! Sometimes, instead of showing Jesus, we show others how clever we are, how great or how well–educated we are!
