Prayer Request:
Those families that are going through their 1st Christmas after the loss of a loved one.
@F3-Mary Ann son has a friend with no place to go so he is coming to their home. Pray all goes well.
@O’Douls – Their relationship with their oldest son is pretty strained and he is not talking with them. This time of year is hard as a result.
PAX that are spending time with family. For safe travel and for the time together is a blessing.
 
Mole Skin:
F3 does not subscribe to any particular faith but does ask you to believe in something or someone higher than yourself and that you respect the leading of the days Q. I am a Christian and I will be leading as such.
Luke 2:1-20 from The Message
2 1-5 About that time Caesar Augustus ordered a census to be taken throughout the Empire. This was the first census when Quirinius was governor of Syria. Everyone had to travel to his own ancestral hometown to be accounted for. So Joseph went from the Galilean town of Nazareth up to Bethlehem in Judah, David’s town, for the census. As a descendant of David, he had to go there. He went with Mary, his fiancée, who was pregnant.
6-7 While they were there, the time came for her to give birth. She gave birth to a son, her firstborn. She wrapped him in a blanket and laid him in a manger, because there was no room in the hostel.
8-12 There were shepherds camping in the neighborhood. They had set night watches over their sheep. Suddenly, God’s angel stood among them and God’s glory blazed around them. They were terrified. The angel said, “Don’t be afraid. I’m here to announce a great and joyful event that is meant for everybody, worldwide: A Savior has just been born in David’s town, a Savior who is Messiah and Master. This is what you’re to look for: a baby wrapped in a blanket and lying in a manger.”
13-14 At once the angel was joined by a huge angelic choir singing God’s praises:
Glory to God in the heavenly heights,
 Peace to all men and women on earth who please him.
15-18 As the angel choir withdrew into heaven, the shepherds talked it over. “Let’s get over to Bethlehem as fast as we can and see for ourselves what God has revealed to us.” They left, running, and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in the manger. Seeing was believing. They told everyone they met what the angels had said about this child. All who heard the shepherds were impressed.
19-20 Mary kept all these things to herself, holding them dear, deep within herself. The shepherds returned and let loose, glorifying and praising God for everything they had heard and seen. It turned out exactly the way they’d been told!
What stood out to me is in verse 12 where it reads, “a Savior who is Messiah and Master.”  While it is easy to say Jesus is our Messiah it may be more difficult to say that He is our Master.  There are all kinds of things out there that we allow to be our Master.  As we draw to the end of another year identify an area or two that you can work at allowing Jesus to be the Master of in 2022.
Take a knee.
I appreciate the opportunity to lead you HIM today, thank you for that privilege.
Hot Mic Out!
