Think on these things…


Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise,think on these things. Philippians 4:8

As we think on these things this Christmas, pray we will keep Christ at the center. He is all of the above:

Jesus is truth – John 14:6

Jesus is honest – John 10:31-37

Jesus is just – Luke 11

Jesus is pure – Mark 1:24

Jesus is lovely – Romans 10:15

Thanks to Jesus, Gentiles received a good report:

Now when they had come and gathered the church together, they reported all that God had done with them, and that He had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles. Acts 14:27

Jesus will receive all praise and glory forever and forever:

And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: “Blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!” Revelations 5:13
