Celebrate Christmas Audaciously

“My soul magnifies the Lord,” Lk1:46

The legacy of centuries of Christmas celebration begins with the Virgin Mary’s Immaculate conception of Jesus Christ; He is the gift. It is the audacious love of God with the splendor of His majestic, miraculous, power and presence that we celebrate. The word of God says “I love them that love me…” Prov8:17 Mary’s response to God was dedication to audaciously give to all humanity. It is the kind of love that sings “My soul magnifies the Lord” Luke 1:46, Christ is essential and central. This is intrinsic to the holy call to the fulness of Christian life and one that manifests voluminous expressions of humanity.

We are all called to be bearers of the fruit of the Spirit, full of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness and faithfulness. As we celebrate this, we experience the perfection of charity and realization that Christmas is more than a day. When God, Our Father in heaven, brought Jesus Christ into the world, He gave the world the eternal gift of life. The gift also holds a perpetual magnificent call for all to live, move and have our being in Him – it is a call to not only celebrate but to actually love audaciously. Love is expressed in how we carry life. Like Mary, we are all called to boldly, courageously, bravely and fearlessly, present ourselves as carriers of the Lord into the world for the rescue of souls, survival of lives and betterment of society. This is the greatest gift we can give. This Christmas let our dedication shine on God, our Lord Jesus Christ, our comforter, our assurance, the light of the world who is always with us. Mary’s song was never intended to be a one-time solo nor a one-day performance. It is the believers continuous encore of living out… Lk:46 “My soul magnifies the Lord 47 And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior. 48 For he hath regarded the lowly…” .


God loves us Audaciously! Above anything we can ask or think or imagine! Let’s end this year and enter into next year audaciously loving and magnifying the Lord. Celebrate this Christmas audaciously experiencing His amazing love. This Christmas be audacious, boldly gather everyone together to magnify the LORD, and exalt the name that is above all names, Jesus Christ! “O magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together”. Psalm 34:3

Merry Christmas!
