Casting Call {Jesus}


It's December and Christmas is drawing near. Yay!
This month, we are going to dive deep into the 
characters surrounding the birth of Jesus.  
Join us! 

Bust out the Word, 
grab your pen and paper, 
and soak up the story of a Savior's birth. 

Next up:


Jesus.
The main attraction.
The big deal.
The prophecy fulfill-er.
The perfect baby.
The savior of the world.
Born...

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. ~ Isaiah 7:14

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. ~ Isaiah 9:6

And he still is called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and The Prince of Peace centuries later. The tiny son of God, who abandoned a throne to wear flesh for a broken world.  The greatest gift of all...

Eternal Life
Liberating Freedom
Miraculous Healing
Infinite Grace
Perfect Love
Holy Forgiveness
Transforming Redemption

These amazing, life changing gifts weren't wrapped in snowmen paper or Christmas tree paper.  They didn't come with a pretty red bow or a glittery name tag.  Yet, they were the most expensive and irreplaceable gifts.  No homemade gift on Pinterest can compare to the one given by the hand of God.

This is love: 
not that we loved God, 
but that he loved us and
sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice 
for our sins. 1 John 4:10

Merry Christmas friends of Upward Not Inward.  We love you all and want you to know this Christmas the best present is that of salvation.  If this Christmas is rough for you or if you are hurting, we want to pray for you.  We pray for every person who reaches this page, but if there is something we can specifically pray for you in this season, we would love to do that for you.  All your comments come through our e-mail, and it would be an honor to pray for you.

Merriest of Christmas to You!!
