From Pastor Brian Markle Ottawa, the Spririt of Jesus is Alive!

By / / As we come together this Christmas season, let’s reflect on the profound and transformative moment when “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:14). This biblical truth speaks to the depth of God’s love, demonstrated through Jesus Christ, who chose to become like us, embracing humanity with all its frailties and joys. This Christmas, I invite you to ponder the significance of Christ’s incarnation. It’s a time to consider how we, as followers of Jesus, can emulate His example in our daily lives. Let us renew our commitment to walk in His footsteps, embodying His teachings of love, compassion, and grace. Embracing the spirit of Christ means making sacrifices out of love, foregoing personal gratifications for the greater good, and enduring challenges with faith and perseverance. These acts, done in His name, are not just noble; they bring us closer to the heart of God. My prayer for each of you, as members of our wider community, is that the Lord will draw you nearer to Him, deepening your relationship and empowering you to be His hands and feet in a world that so desperately needs His touch. May your Christmas be filled with moments of profound joy and spiritual renewal. As we celebrate the birth of Jesus, let us also remember His promise to be “with us always, even to the ends of the earth” (Matthew 28:20). This promise assures us of His constant presence and unwavering love, guiding us through every season of life. Wishing you a blessed and Merry Christmas, Pastor Brian Markle Ottawa
