|CHAPLAIN'S CHRISTMAS MESSAGE TO ALL
Mary and I have been watching a wonderful show on PBS/HD late at night
titled "The FACE of JESUS in Art." I've seen it twice and will order the
DVD. Perhaps some of you have also seen it.
Christmas is a time when we remember God and HIS WORD made FLESH
in JESUS, HIS only Begotten SON. God in Christ often gets lost during
then year. He is always there, but unless things get tough, God is usually
put on the back burner. Our lives are so full of a number of things that
crowd out time for faithful reflection.
Christmas, even with the hustle and bustle, puts the Babe of Bethlehem
back at center stage. Remember God and His gift of His eternal SON makes
a great Christmas....something to remember everyday of our lives.
As I viewed "The FACE of JESUS in Art" again last night, I became aware
of all the gifts I received as a Pastor and as Chaplain of ASAKorea....gifts
that mean so much.....friendship, comradeship, love and commitment to
the Word of God made Flesh in Jesus, the Lord's Christ.
May you and yours enjoy the fulness as knowing Jesus Christ. He is the
ONE who stands at the door and knocks (Rev. 3:20); it is up to us to open
that door and leave HIM into our hearts and lives. God be with you. A
happy and merry Christmas.
Rev. Charles "Preacher" Knappenberger, Chaplain, ASAKorea
