“Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.” (Exodus 20: 3-5)

Friends we are nearing to the most wonderful season of the year, Yes its Christmas! Every year we celebrate Christmas in the remembrance of the Christ child who was born to redeem us from our sins! So let us prepare ourself to meet the Lord!

Jacob, father of the twelve tribes of Israel was called by the Lord to meet Him. We are going to mediate on 2 essential things which Jacob did as a preparation to meet the Lord,

“And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.” (Genesis 35:1)

No to Idolatry:

[su_pullquote align=”left”]People who seek worldly riches more than Lord can never inherit the Kingdom of the Lord![/su_pullquote]

As soon as Jacob heard these words from the Lord his first step was, he called everyone in his household and asked them to put away the strange gods,

“Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the strange gods that are among you” (Genesis 35:2)

This is the prime thing which even we need to do in our life! Jesus Christ is the one who can save you from your sins and none can! If you know this truth then you will never worship any strange gods!

Idolatry doesn’t only mean that you worship strange gods, if you love anything or any person greater than your Lord in your heart that is the greatest idolatry which you do! Paul clearly wrote this in Ephesians,

“For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.” (Ephesians 5:5)

People who seek worldly riches more than Lord can never inherit the Kingdom of the Lord! So friends let us put away all the strange gods, either your role model, your wife, kids, parents, friends anybody whom you have kept before Lord and cleanse our Heart to welcome this Holy Child. You can be with them eternally when you keep the Lord your God as first in your heart! But if try to please them and lose your salvation then you can’t give anything in exchange to get it back! Bible says,

“For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Mathew 16:26)

So Let the Lord be the head of your house and heart and surely He will bless you 1000 times in His Kingdom. Which he had already promised!

“And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.” (Mathew 19:29) Amen.

Abad of Jesus Christ,
