JESUS SHOWS UP! I WENT TO JAIL on the eve of Christmas Eve - jail ministry. I was told no other women from the team could go that night. I was tired, and a little bit not feeling well, but I was determined I would go and do a Bible study because I wanted the women in jail to know -- JESUS SHOWS UP!
When I arrived, to my surprise another woman showed up from the team and then another. Seeing each other our spirits were lifted, and we lifted the spirits of a crowd of women. So many women came out of their jail cells for ministry that night that we split up into groups. JESUS SHOWS UP! THAT’S CHRISTMAS! And we are never alone in the labor field, that’s the church!
2000 years ago in a Bethlehem stable Jesus showed up. JESUS came to earth as Immanuel, GOD WITH US. And today, everywhere, for all who will RECEIVE HIM, remember: JESUS SHOWS UP!
God bless you all. Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!
No matter what happens in life in this new year, 2018, remember, JESUS SHOWS UP!
