The Depth of Christmas

Colossians 2:10. “and you are complete in him….”

Whatever your deepest need, the answer can be found in the Christ of Christmas.

I recently witnessed a woman in desperate need of the father of her baby to declare his love in a permanent commitment. She would never form the words, “Ask me to marry you,” but everything she did said those words for her. The man seemed clueless, and her frustration was palatable.

Human beings can never fulfill us the way Jesus can. As women, we want to be wanted, to be cherished and for someone to show we are worth whatever it takes to win us. It is no exaggeration to say that Christ leaving Heaven to come to earth and suffer crucifixion is the quintessential expression of love! This should forever settle the deep question of our worth no matter who rejects us.

Rejoice that Christ’s coming had in mind the fulfillment of all your deepest needs. Embrace Him in gratitude for all He has done, My Friend. May the rehearsal of His intention in coming merry your heart in its deepest places this Christmas season!

Welcome to Encouragement Outpost! My name is Dr. Georgia Pointer, a Christian writer who loves encouraging people in their relationship with Christ. I am a survivor of childhood rape and molestation, bullying, and emotional abuse. Negative thought patterns plagued me for many years until I learned to allow Christ and His Word to encourage and transform those thoughts. This background provides me with a passion to offer the same encouragement to anyone, not just abuse survivors, with the light of biblical truth that shines against the darkness of negativity, lies of the enemy, and daily struggles in living for Christ. I am a seminary graduate with a Masters in Christian Education. I also recently received my doctorate in Christian Counseling with a specialty in Family and Substance Abuse counseling. I served on staff for six years as a counselor at Moriah House of the Memphis Union Mission. I love the Word of God! I love studying it, teaching it, and speaking in public about it any chance I get. This blog, which I post about once a week, is my venue to share insights I glean. So, I invite you to subscribe to receive my weekly posts in your email and to share these posts with anyone you think might be encouraged by them.
